Love Heart


Hope you have all had a good week and have managed to spend some quality time creating.

I am still in the Valentine mood, but it is wearing a bit thin now LOL. One more project to go and one abandoned project into the cupboard of doom.

I recently brought two black slate hearts i  saw in Hobbycraft.  I decided to start with the largest one and add a few bits and pieces, but I wanted to take myself out of my comfort zone of only working with odd amounts of embellishments (i know strange). I have this real thing about odd numbers in life in general ..........So I decided to work with FOUR roses instead of three and believe me it was trauma.  I stuck it all down and then ripped it all off twice, before finally deciding that I could live with the finished piece.  Will not be doing that again in a hurry.

Love working with Perfect Pearls but I know have two bottles which will not spray, If anyone has an ideas other than using hot water please let me know.

Thank you for stopping by Tuck Towers, until the next time

  1. Hi Sue, lovely project. The roses and embellies look great together. I know what you mean about comfort zone but is good to stretch out of it now and then.

  2. Lovely piece - hun even if it did give you some headaches!! Cant help with the clogged sprays - have the same problem and havent found an answer yet!! hugs xxx

  3. Hi Su - great project but like you I have to do things in odd numbers, even dont work for me. But you have made it work very well here!! Im impressed!! xx hugs xxx

  4. Hi Sue, this heart is absolutely stunning and I bet you are really happy that you did it now too. Can't really help with your sprays, I just rinse them in hot water when they clog up. You could possibly store them lying down so that the mica does not clog up the sprayer so much? Hugs, Anne x
