More Precious Than Gold

Hi happy crafters... this month at Anything But A Card we are focused on "Fools Gold"... create something using that wonderful color "Gold", be sure to link up with us so that we can also be inspired by your creation. Here is my take on this theme...
I decided to create an exploding canvas. I was inspired by this through ccartdesigns YOUTUBE which you can view that HERE. I just decided to create mine in the shape of a heart.  The photo was of my daughter and I on a frigid morning in Central Park, NY
Molding paste & crackle paste provided my canvas with the texture I wanted. Gold UTEE on the tops of the flowers gave them that gilded look.
Gold embossed rocks added that perfect handmade embellishment which went with my sentiment "My love for you is more precious than gold".
So many things you can do with an exploding canvas. Try your hand in it. Below is a tutorial on my process for creating this. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by !
This canvas is being entered in the following challenges: 
Flying Unicorn  - April Made With Love  -Anything Goes
Eclectic Ellapu- April Showers / Spring
