love of hearts.

 I love hearts.  What girl doesn't??  I have a wall in my dining room that's awfully plain.  Kinda sad that we've been our house for 4 years and I'm really just now getting stuff hung on the walls that I really like.  Oh well - better late than never, right??

Here's the scoop:
I had a set of 3 wooden hearts from Making Memories that I've had for a LONG time.  I sprayed them down with Glimmer Mist Chalkboard in Decadence.  I let it set for about 5 mins, then took a kleenex and blotted off the excess spray.  I just wanted a fine antique-ish look to these. 
Once the GM was totally dry, I hot glued on little white flowers on 2 of the hearts, and again, used the Tulip heat setting tool for the bling.  I took the giant blossom, which was originally white, and again used the Tim Holtz Color Wash in stream and LIGHTLY sprayed (I actually had to do this on 2 different flowers.  This color was is VERY saturated and I didn't want something super dark.)  I then attached the ribbon to the hearts so they could be hung.
Here's the finished project.  It gave my wall some oomph and I love how it turned out.  The big flower matches my kitchen perfectly.  I have to give kudos to my husband who actually picked that color out when we repainted the once red room. :)

Don't forget about the blog hop!
