Hallo!

I haven't been around for a couple of months and this is the first thing I've finished since...er...October?  Anyway, this is a mixed media collage piece.  I got to try out some fun new-to-me techniques.  I used canvas board as a base and layed with paper, paints, inks, joint compound, watercolors, lace, and some little water drop looking embellishments.  The heart is wood that I papered and painted.  I made gears using the Tim Holtz gears dye for the Sizzix and used shrinky dink plastic.  I inked them then I covered them (badly) with Glossy Accents.  I also got to use clear embossing powder for the first time.  Whee!

I really like the close-up photos because I can really see the layers of color and texture that you put into this piece!! Really really nice.

Thanks! 

Yeah, it can be hard to show all of the textures without some interesting angles.  Smiley
