Have a heart...That's Crafty Blog Challenge

It's the First Wednesday of the month which can only mean one thing!
It's the start of a Brand New challenge over on the That's Crafty Challenge Blog

This months theme is.. I Heart You and you can interpret it in anyway you wish.
There's a Prize for one random winner along with a prize for the top 3,
we really do hope you can come on over and share your creations with us.


Here is my *Have a Heart panel plaque's.. how to do's

On a 4.5 x 9" greyboard panel I created another faux wooden background like last month 
scoring with a pencil to create the tongue and groove appearance but this time dry brushing brown and white multi-surface paint, dragging those colours together.


 Stamping the wooden panel stamp from textures set 4 in random areas I embossed with tan embossing powder to raise up some areas to give that peeled paint effect.


Pushing texture paste through the daisy stencil I painted the whole heart 
in brown and bright red to create a deep ox blood colour.


Drying with a heat tool antique gold was brushed over those raised areas


Painting a greyboard word *Love* it was time to dress the panel plaque,
but not before giving the back panel a little distressing.
 Me and my trusty hammer are becoming inseparable.. hee hee!!


Glued onto the panel I pushed some latch hook scraps under the heart 
as it was looking a little flat, lost and lonely on its own. 

The word LOVE was glued on top with eyelets and a recycled red lace acting as its hanger.

My *Have a Heart* Panel Plaque is complete..


I love how the latch hook looks underneath the heart,
almost as if it is nesting..

I do hope you can join us for this months challenge
and please remember to pop on over and check out those inspirational makes 
from the That's Crafty Design Team we look forward to seeing you THERE.

Wishing you much creativity
