Hey there everyone! I've been lurking around Craftster for probably a year or so, but just recently started an account in the hopes of posting some clothing I've made. However, the first thing I'm posting is jewelry, haha.

Well anyways, a while back I started seeing teeshirts and jewelry and all sorts of things with hearts on them, made to look like real hearts. And I know it's prettttty overdone by now, but I have never seen anyone around here with that kinda stuff, so I figure its okay for me to make something with it!!

So here it is, made of shrinky dink plastic (sanded down, it was that annoyingly smooth kind) and colored with permanent markers, colored pencils, and covered in a coat of clear fingernail polish (yeah, I'm pretty much poor lol). I know that it's not really anatomically correct, but I'm okay with that haha, as long as you can tell what it is!

The paper that I traced the heart from (original size of the plastic heart), and the plastic heart after baking!

Look, you can see the color difference and the chambers when it's held up to the light!

Here it is on! Should I wear it on a longer necklace? Hmm. (Excuse my unstyled hair please!! lol)

Well thanks a lot for looking!! And sorry, I talk/type a loooot. lol.

i usually dont like those anatomic tshirts (i study medicine, so anatomy is not a novelty for me Cheesy i kinda hated that subject Tongue)
but your heart is very subtle, and cute Wink
and i like hearing the stories of the crafts posted, that is what makes this forum unique Smiley

maybe if i was a crafster in the days of anatomy classes  i could have been easier to me to lear Cheesy

I like the length of the chain you have it on - it's kind of like "heart in my throat" kind of thing. Good job, I've never worked with shrinky stuff but probably will eventually!
