...DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY... i'm sharing with you a small canvas I made for a couple celebrating their Diamond Wedding Anniversary... loVely it is to share the path of life with the one you loVe...

...after modge podging a piece of plain white tissue randomly to the canvas followed by a chunk of fine hessian i then washed over the entire surface with Old Paper Distress Ink...

...the shape of a heart was torn from Mulberry Paper which was then saturated with iridescent sequins, I loVe the way the light dances and shimmers off these gorgeous mini disc's...

...this textured flower is cut from the Sizzix Flowers Die..the materials are a soft White Cotton and Glassine Paper with a Solitaire Diamond (a stud earring) for the center...

...silver beads and thick glitter chips are randomly scattered...

...soft fibre's laid under local driftwood...

...loVe grows followed by a red opaque glass bead...

...made and received with loVe...
...thank you for stopping by...
