Vintage images offer a wonderful jumping-off point for crafting fun.
For this project I chose:
Queen of Hearts collage
Red shiny foil tape
Mediums for texture
Aleene's Tacky Glue
Trim for dangle
Stencil for heart dangle
Beaded chain, cord, or twine
Eyelets-1 small and 1 large
Small bit of wire
I chose the 2 images I wanted to use and added glaze, glitter and Stickles to each panel. Set aside to dry.
I used a stencil I liked and mixed gel medium and the Art Anthology paint I chose; scraped it over the stencil onto watercolor paper and set it aside to dry.
Once the panels were dry, I adhered them back to back and added the red foil tape to the edges. Holes were punched top and bottom and eyelets set.
I used some plastic beading to hang the dangle. I fashioned a small piece of wire to hold it inside the bottom eyelet.
The heart dangle was cut from the watercolor paper and "domed" to make it look puffy. I used a foam block and the rounded end of a chopstick on the backside to push-out the form. Watercolor paper is sturdy and very forgiving when manipulated.
I added glitter around the edges and Stickles to accent.
Sari ribbon was tied to the dangle heart and to the top of the image through the eyelet for hanging.
