Canvas for Shari

Hi friends!
Sorry I've neglected you!
You know the old cliche` "where did January go??? I have been doin' stuff, really.....
Just to prove it here's a little pictorial.  I was on a roll.  Loved how it turned out and Shari, my son's girlfriend loved it too.
 It started out like this.  A bit of paper here, a bit of glimmer mist there.
 Add some masks and texture paste.  Crackle the scroll and spray with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Spray.
 Sand the whole thing back vigorously.
 Placement of the photo's.  The heart was painted first and then covered with fusible film.
 Highlights and shadows were added where needed.
 Matisse Iridescent was painted here and there and then blasted with the old heat gun to get that gorgeous bubbly look.
 The photos were added with texture paste and glue.  Note to self, don't get glimmer mist on photo, it doesn't like it.
  Add stamped serviettes here and there.  This was a technique I learn't at a Nathalie Kalbach's class.  Notice the little clear envelope in the corner.  It contains little inspirational quotes for Shari.  Looking at it in the photo it looks a little busy, but overall I was very happy with the result.  Thanks for checking it out.
