I created this little shrine for a swap and I think I love it too much to send it along! I am certain I can create something else just as lovely for my partner and I am lucky that I have plenty of time and supplies.
I started this project by putting an old Altoid tin in my fireplace while enjoying a fire. I really like the effect this had on the tin. Old sheet music and scrapbook paper are the base for this mixed media collage. The heart was purchased at a local craft store and the wings were actually scored in the bead area of that same store. I simply cut the loop right off the wing. I do this often in my altered projects as I have a lovely unique little bead shop in town too. I used a small grungeboard crown and a few gears from a great clock that I tore apart. Bits of filmstrip, tissue tape, stickels and Perfect Pearls were also used to embellish.
