I covered the frame with masking tape pieces. Then I painted it with red acrylic paint. After that dried, I thought it needed pearl or white in all the crevices to create an antiqued look. When I started rubbing the white in, the red rubbed off in places. I loved the distressed look this caused so I went with it and continued with several layers of paint and rubbing off in areas. I coated the piece with two coats of varnish. I added the checked paper for the inside background and added my little paperclay heart inspired by KadyHope. I purchased three beautiful little clay heart magnets from her and I just had to make my own larger versions for my assemblage pieces. Go and check out Kadys work, scroll down to see her little clay houses! They are so precious!
I'm looking forward to a lovely art filled weekend and I hope that you have a lovely weekend as well......be creative and loving in all you do. HUGS
