Altered Heart Tray for Valentines by Katie

Hello Crafter's 

Katie has made a stunning heart, which is just perfect for a Valentine's day gift.

So I started by coating a wooden tray heart with Prima White Gesso and then mixed the gesso with Rose Red Brusho Powder which was then painted over the first coat. 

Mix Rose Red with crackle paint and apply to the base of the tray. 

Next stamp over the base with a texture stamp. 

Use a hot glue gun to adhere a string of LED lights around the tray, you can usually pick these up from Pound shops and they come in different colours. 

I then carefully glued the hessian ribbon around the edge to hide the wires.

Create a heart pillow by cutting out a heart shape using a nesting die and then dying it with ink. 

Sew and stuff it and glue it to the corner of the tray. 

Glue a resin Lacey heart to the centre.

Gather an assortment of flowers and start gluing them around the inside of the tray. I used, the cupped fabric flowers, the large orange & cream daisy flowers, red bead flowers, white fabric flowers and some small flowers from my stash.

Use a couple of small assorted keys to finish the project.

With the lights turned on, it makes a great focal point for a romantic dinner.

Ooh, I so love the texture and effects from the Brusho in the bottom of the tray, it just sets off all the embellishments used.
