Indigo Blu Shabby Chic Heart

I've made this papier mache heart for the Indigo Blu 'Shabby Chic' challenge. I collaged together images from Live, Laugh, Love, the Poppies, and the Mr Darcy sets.

I painted the base with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish in Claret mixed with Rusty Rose for opacity, and then Crackle Glaze, then Mushroom. I painted the images with Frescos.

I stitched the lace to the cord that was already on the hanging.


  1. Love the blending of images and colors! Gorgeous hanging heart, Lucy! Have a fabulous weekend! Hugs!

  2. Beautiful images and colours. This is a fabulous collage, very unusual and feminine. Julie Ann xx

    Lucy, I have no access to my e-mail account at the moment and unsure when it will be resolved, I have such little faith in AOL!

  6. So pretty, Lucy - the layered stamping looks just perfect. Hope you've been having fun at Ally Pally!
