Mixed Media Heart

DecoArt products are great to use in mixed media projects!  Karen Conner has a wonderful mix media journal page she would like to share! 

Cut 4 layers of hearts from cardboard. Glued together.  Smooth texture paste around edges and top. Run patterned roller on top. Allow to dry thoroughly.
Cut .star shape in middle of pattern paper, pulled back edges and spritzed with water to crinkle up the edges. Slid heart underneath & glued in place. Painted heart brown acrylic, then a coat of white antiquing cream, then rubbed with red metallic wax.

Added flower embellishments and intertwined fiber around the middle elements.

Came with Muse Kit: Designer paper, roller with pattern, fibers
gesso, matte medium
DecoArt: White Antique cream, red & platinum metallic wax, texture paste

buttons, layered flowers.
