That Craft Place Challenge and Masterboard.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
And here is my new design for :
That Craft Place Challenge Blog.

As usual this fortnight's theme is:
Mixed Media Anything Goes!
So lets see what you can come up with!

But before you start here is my piece using a variety of products from That Craft Place.

For this project I am using the other part of the MDF heart.

You may remember me using the frame section for my last project.
And this Masterboard.
And today I have used the solid part of the heart and more of the Masterboard to create this layered heart:

 Started by applying grunge paste through a stencil (available from That Craft Place) and then covering it with adhesive aluminium foil which I rubbed down to cover the hearts and then applied black acrylic paint.

When you've done this, wipe away gently before it's fully dry leaving a thin covering to give an aged effect.

I then used the heart to trace round the Masterboard to get a good shape when cutting out.

I then cut away just enough to reveal the metal below and ripped the heart down the middle and attached it.

 At this stage I die cut several more hearts and stitched them together down the centre so they would open up when attached showing the layers which you can see here.

I completed this by adding the embellishments as seen below all of which are available from That Craft Place.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Hope you will leave a comment so I know if you like my project and maybe pop over and join in the challenge at That Craft Place. 
Happy crafting,

  1. Gorgeous Angela! I love that metallic layer, so eroded and rustic, what an amazing contrast with the soft pinks and delicate feathers!

    Thank you so much for joining us at Frilly and Funkie for our 'Layer It Up' challenge! Hugs, Pamellia DT :)

  2. This is lovely, Angela. I love the 3-D effect with all the layers, and the fabulous masterboard too, and the aged metal is great. I love using black acrylic on a textured surface like this, and rubbing it off so it just remains in the crevaces - it really emphasises the texture and creates a nice shadow effect.


  3. Such a beautiful layered heart Angela, I love how it manages to be grungy but feminine at the same time! Hugs, Anne xx

  4. Great to see how your design all came together Angela. Fab project.
