Yes we have a new challenge over at That`s Crafty Challenge blog 
and what else could be right for this months, other than having your heart with you ,-also when creating !!  
My sample therefore had to be made on one of the wonderful heart shaped 
white greyboards, honoring beautiful friendship, and the friends, whom
always are there for me.  Thank you dear`s . 

I first went over it with thinned gesso, and after dry, the so beautiful stencil was used with 
Texture past in left side . on right side I adhered old lace scraps, and when all had dried,
I mixed white and black paint, to a grey, which was first brushed over the lace ,

and after thinned with lots of water to get a very light tone, and then bruched
over the stenciled ,side.

The wonderful big button from Texture Collections stamp set 3, was  stamped
onto a scrap of old textile, which also, had  got a coat, of the grey, first.
I used Archival Ink to stamp with . They were adhered to right side , of the heart.

Then one of the hearts from a greyboard bits and pieces sheet 
was  painted too, and after ,I again used the stencil, to create interest, and also 
draw around the perimeter to define the shape.. 

I found two lovely friends from T.Holz :Ancestors , adhered them , to the middle of the heart,
and gave them the heart of friendship ,into their hands . The left side girl got a black "shadow" to define them, better.

For the left side of the heart I used a pompom yarn ,from my stash, 
also painted , with light grey, and a piece of crocheted old lace, in the peak
as seen below .

A lovely piece of sari silk, from my stash was inserted in the holes, I had made
using my Crop A Dille .

NOW remember if you wan t to play, too- 

the winner of this challenge will receive a £30 voucher to spend in the online shop and the Top 3 will receive a stencil/s of their choice from our own That's Crafty! brand.

Sounds fantastic, dosen`t it !!!!!!

Good luck to you all,

Hugs and love


From my stash:

Lace scraps-  pompom yarn, sari silk  and black fine liner .

What a fabulous way to honour those close and caring, it must have been so heartfelt creating it and bring a big smile to you each time you gaze upon it.
