Altered heart with BRAND NEW Prima goodies!

Hi all dear blog readers.

It has been a bit silent in here this month, a lot more silent then I actually planned it to be. I have simply been to busy the last week, with creating for CHA on lots of other stuff. But now I am ready to start sharing some works with you all, and first up is an altered heart I did with lots of BRAND NEW Prima goodies!



 I used a polystyrene heart, and cut out a square hole in it which fitted the size of the beautiful old window from an old stamp set (Crenee) from Prima. I stamped this window on a dark brown cardstock  and embossed it with white embossing powder. I did this twice to create two windows, and cut out the whole center in one of them so I could use it as a window sill, and the 4 window squares in the other one to make holes for glass to look trough. I used a square piece of a transparent sheet and folded it and inked it where it was folded, and cut away some parts of it, to create a look as a broken window glass. Then I added this distressed transparent piece on the backside of the embossed window which still was complete.

I altered the polystyrene heart with strips of teared Prima pattern paper. I used Claudine Hellmuth's Gesso on both sites of each paper strip. This great medium works well as glue and to soften up the paper so you better can work with it to fit the shape of the heart. As soon as I have placed and shaped the strips as I want them, I use wet tissues to remove all the Gesso that's left on the heart.

Then, I mounted on the widow pieces and added embellish after desire ;o)



And some close-ups ;O)


Here you can see the broken window glass, and some old hinges. I also added a vintage old clock face and some clock gears in the "secret window room". The beautiful bird is one of Prima's new rub-ons! I rubbed it on to a transparent sheet and cut it out, like this you can use and add rub-ons wherever you wish on your craft!

Here again you can see the technique I use with rub-ons on transparent sheets. Here used on some brand new amazingly beautiful butterfly rub-ons from Prima! The little branch with leaves on in the background is also a new rub-on from Prima, added directly to the paper on the heart. I also used Ranger crackle paint (Picked Fence) around the window still to create a more vintage look.

Here you can see one of Prima's new Vintage Trinkets, the sweet little metal key lock heart! Isn't that sweet?!



























Here you can see another new and very beautiful rub-on, the text "Memories".

"Reflections" #545260 - Rub-ons; (turquoise butterflies, bird, Memories text and branches/leaves.
