A Heart For PaperArtsy

 It's been ages since I've had time to take part in the challenges over at PaperArtsy, so I was really pleased to be able to play along this week. Helen made a fabulous heart for the 10th birthday celebrations, and I wanted a go.
I followed the instructions as closely as I could, and was really pleased with my crackling. I am not good (absolutely rubbish) at crackling, but I put it on with a palate knife instead of a paintbrush like I've done in the past, and whoo hoo perfect crackles :-) Thank you PA crackle, it does exactly what it says on the tin!

This is my favourite side, I love Zesty Zing. I applied silver texture paste through a stencil, liked it a lot and applied the 'if it's not broken don't add any more paint' to it rule, and walked away lol.
If you havn't visited the PaperArtsy blog this week you must head on over and see what Darcy has created (then pick up your jaw )
I've used stamps from Lynne Perrella plates 004 017 and the lovely little text stamp is from IATD Clocks 1
Thanks very much for looking, and enjoy the rest of your weekend x


  1. Sue this is fabulous - well done on the crackling, I often have trouble too!! Your hearts are gorgeous... and I agree about Darcy's projects this week.

  2. Fab crackling there Sue, love your bright heart project.

    Great to see you doing something again for you rather than having to do it for a DT project!!!
