A giant heart…

Welcome back.

I have received many emails from folks asking about the Let Your Heart Shine Frame I did for the Ranger Perfect Pearls CHA Designer Challenge. (You can find more on this challenge HERE.) So, I thought I would share some info about it here.

People also have asked what I am going to do with it. There really is no where in my house that it works. And I decided against having it published and instead think I might auction it off or sell it to raise money for the card drives or something. Not sure yet – I just think the message is a good one and could really make someone smile.

That frame was plain wood. Then white. Then red. Then black. I couldn't decide.

The background is made up of old book pages applied on a chipboard background with Multi Medium and then painted lightly over with Studio white paint.

I die cut a bunch of cardstock hearts with a PaperTrey Ink die and laid them on a craft sheet. Colin then sprayed them heavily with Perfect Pearl Mist and even shook on some more Perfect Pearls. The puddles of shine dried leaving such a cool look on the hearts.

Colin then put a foam dot on the back of each and I placed them within a traced on the background. Team work.

And I loved every minute of creating it. Even if it took a lot of minutes. 🙂

Off to watch some TV and plan some of my upcoming classes. Take care!
