Friends, this is what happens when it rains all the time! You get rusty flowers! Just kidding...but it IS raining an awful lot! This piece is a little different than what I normally do. I had the rusty pieces sitting in a sewing drawer for the longest time. You know when you see something and you think, I could use this for something. Then you buy it and it sits... for a long, long time? And if you don't buy it- later on it comes to mind and you wish you would have bought it? That is me- all the time! Drives me nuts. The background is a 8X10 framed canvas. I mod podged some pieces of music paper and other pieces. Double click and you can see it better. Then I white washed it with gesso. And then cherry stain. Printed out the words and then stained them with distressed ink. Then mod podged them on the canvas and the rusty heart.
I love this rusty heart! I'm not sure what it was for, but I love it. It's quite heavy. And about 3 inches across. The center was hollow so I glued one of the many fabulous buttons that I bought from the store, "Indulge". See one of my previous post called "Indulge" and you can read about my awesome deal! I thought this button looked like the center of a flower, don't you? I thought the petals were kind of shaped like hearts too. That was the deciding factor for my heart leaves.
I really like this grassy looking piece of trim that I bought from "Flights of Fancy". I could have used green but hey, this flower hasn't been watered in awhile! Heehee.
I love these rusted hearts.
I took this picture at about 5 O' clock this evening. Not a good time to get a really good picture but the clouds were out ALL day and there was finally a tiny smidgen of sun and I took advantage of it. But it looks too bright now. Oh yeah, the sun on this piece is a rusty washer and the streaks are rusty wire.
I pray that you all have a fabulous week. And thanks for visiting a leaving wonderful comments! And I changed the stipulations on becoming a follower if you want to do so and haven't yet. It should be a lot easier. I didn't realize that I had some restrictions- not anymore. :)
Blessings to you all~
