Key to My Heart

So here’s a quick little thing that I did once I found my artistic mojo with that last piece.  LOL!  It’s only 2″x3″ and can be hung on a wall or sit on an easel.  I still haven’t decided yet if I want to put a magnet on the back of it so I can stick it on the fridge.  We’ll see…..

Anyhow, I got a little masonite Shrine kit from Retro Art Cafe.  The kit comes in pieces and you have to assemble it.  So I only used 3 of the 7 components and painted each part with a different color of Lumiere paint.  I love that paint because of the shimmer and how rich the colors look once they’re dry…..but I digress.  The Sacred Heart is from Bombshell Stamps.  I colored it in with Smooch paint and then added Stickles in different shades for glittery goodness! 

The swirl and keyhole are from the Grungeboard Elements set.  I painted the swirl with Lumiere paint and the keyhole with Distress Ink.  I added Distress Rock Candy to the keyhole so that it would crackle and look aged.  I think the key is from 7Gypsies.  I added some Stickles to it so that it would be sparkly.  :) 

I’ve been doing that a lot lately – adding glitter to make every thing shiny and sparkly.  I think the Crafty Chica said it best – Glitter makes everything better!  I have to agree with her.  LOL!  :)

Ok, back to the art…….  The flowers are from Prima and the ribbons are from my own stock.  The dragonfly was a brad and I removed the little legs….poor little dragonfly, suffering all in the name of art!  LOL!  I also added some touches of alcohol inks to the metal so as to give it some depth and color.  The little silver image is an actual milagro that I received as part of some of the goodies from the Crafty Chica Cruise.  It was provided by my friend Annette’s shop CJ Angels.  I added a little bit of alcohol ink to it to make it look a little aged.  The final touch was applying some white gel ink to add some extra dimension.
