      Happy Saturday Everyone!!
      I've got something different than a card this time, and I hope you like it.

      The base of this wall hanging is a heart shaped mdf, but you could also make this on a card base, or even on a layout.

      Here's my How To:

      0m_zpsbxqz0du4.jpg
      Like I said, my base was a mdf heart, which I painted with Prima Blackboard paint (which came in an previous Medium AddOn.

      1m_zpsrbl1h3ha.jpg
      From the March, Main Kit, I used the metal bead chain, and wanted to repeat the heart shape with it.

      2m_zpsciuhv4cy.jpg
      With a pencil I drew a rough sketchy line, to know where to add glue.

      3m_zpse9calhzz.jpg
      to give the chain a little more stability I re-wired it on metal-wire. I found that the quickest way to do that, was to leave the Original thread in it and just poke through the holes of the beads.

      4m_zpslq3xcwgh.jpg
      I didn't comit to tie the knots at the end just yet, I gave it some room, because I'd like to be able to shape it.

      5m_zpsqexfjkhy.jpg
      First I add Beacon Gem-Tac to one half, let it sit for 2 minutes.

      6m_zpsyapkwzug.jpg
      In the meantime I cut randomly a piece of the bling-sheet we got and spritzed it with the darkest color spray from the medium AddOn. You can also fill the little circles with liquid Pearls or stickles, whatever you like.

      7m_zpsfwyryftu.jpg
      Back to the bead-chain. I pressed the beads into the glue, holding it down for a minute and then place something heave on it, and gave it 5 minutes to dry. I repeated this step for the other half as well. I also glued the randomly cut bling to the side of the heart.

      8m_zpssw2rpxal.jpg
      These flowers are going to be stack. I inked the edges of the lightest flower

      9m_zpsxfdp2tce.jpg
      I used Fabri-Tac to glue the flowers together. (I believe Krissy has these adhesives in store)

      10m_zpsqtkyuogr.jpg
      These are the main embellies I'm going to use on my heart shaped base.

      11m_zpszowrg1ny.jpg
      I move them around, till I like the way it looks. This process can sometimes take me a lot of time.

      12m_zpsqo0zcwoq.jpg
      I pretty much stayed to my layout and glued everything down. I still think that there is missing something

      13m_zpsg4f2nfj9.jpg
      So I got my box of bits of metal pieces

      14m_zpspkltbhif.jpg
      And finally selected these ones. The Arrow is cut from grungeboard and got treated with Silver and Gold Paint Dabbers, and after heatset it, I ran Archival inkpad (Jet Black) over it.

      15m_zpspns3mwyp.jpg
      I glued the Arrow and circle right under the Petaloo flower

      16mo_zps4jlk3nzs.jpg
      And the other parts around the Prima Antique Cloch.

      17mo_zpswxxuhven.jpg
      At the right top, I added another bliece of bling-sheet, and I added a piece of seambinding ribbon, to hang it up.

      18_zpsq0fqof5f.jpg
      Because all of the adding stuff on the front, I needed to balance it. To do that I glued, flat, metal pieces to the backside. I keep adding till it was balanced out.

      19_zpsq2p2ka4p.jpg
      And I called it done. I hope you like it.

        Beautiful wall hanging, Paulien! I would never have thought to cut the bling sheet into irregular shapes like that! Love it!

              This is beautiful–and so DOABLE, thanks to your breaking down your creative process! And your tips like balancing the back with metal pieces.

              Thanks also for admitting sometimes this takes me a long time. !shy

                  Thank you for the sweet words ladies!

                  And Donna… A regular layout costs me 8 to 10 hours. A card probably 3 to 4, but sometimes it needs even longer.
                  I'm a slow scrapper I suppose!
