I have been working on this "Shiny Stuff" piece for about 2 weeks, not being really happy with it. I came up with another great "Shiny Stuff" idea and thought I should finish up #1 and post this first (I like the finished piece!) before finishing up my #2 Shiny Stuff" project.
Hugs and Kisses to my Sweeties
Dedicated to all my Sweeties....you know who you are!
I found a frame I thought would be good from my frame stash I have on hand from my quilling art pieces. After sanding the frame, I used metallic paints to spiff up and bring some shine to
the lovely gold base. The white shiny hearts were added to further alter the frame.
Finding a piece of metallic cardstock (also from my former quilling stash), I cut it to the size needed and machine stitched some lovely patterened pink fabric I cut with a neat scalloped edge rotary blade in the shape of an X. I spritzed with some Glamour Dust on the X and background cardstock. Liking things so far!
The frame was coated with a glaze to add some protection and a shiny variegated string tied in a bow was added.
