Your Heart's Desire - vintage shabby mixed media board

I have worked on a large board 25 x 30 cms using DecoArt Media paints and mediums and Tim Holtz idea'ology amongst other bits and pieces. I love the vintage shabby effects and how it all went together. This is my sample for this month's theme at A Vintage Journey called Your Heart's Desire and where Annie is host and since February is the month of love she wants to see hearts as the main focus of the project. I think I've met the challenge!!!
I'm looking to include this in my Workshop list this year so no tutorial or step outs today I'm afraid.

The main heart is made of chipboard, textured and painted.

I created a lovely shabby coloured background panel  ......

..... over which sits a frame and other elements that build the composition.

There's some gorgeous crackle as a border to frame the whole design .....

 .... and one pop of red with this cute little heart that sits on a shelf with a quote chip and a happy  couple from the paper dolls set

 I hope you find time to listen to your heart and hopefully some time to join in our linky with a heart project you  might be making in February.

There's more inspiration over at A Vintage Journey, if you have a moment to pop over to see what some of the other members of the team have made.

Thanks for stopping by and
