Tainted Love by Toni

Hi everyone... it's time again for a fun new project for Art Anthology's Design Team. Today I have for you my "Tainted Love".... purchased this large paper mache heart a while back and this beautiful black feathered wings were a steal at an after Halloween sale.



Prepping the surface of the heart with many metal and wood embellishments as well as assorted florals. The right side ruffles were created with paper. 
After everything was prepped with black gesso I then started adding our pretty Art Anthology paints and sprays. 

Then to finish off, highlights of Vegas Gold .... fun fun fun project, and now I have some inspiration to hang on my craftroom wall. Hope you enjoyed and take a moment to check out my Snapguide tutorial as well. Happy creating !

Entering this piece in the following wonderful challenges: 
Creative Artiste-#36Anything Goes Mixed Media 
The Mixed Media Monthly-#46 Use A Stencil and 3 Mediums (used 3 different stencils and gesso, modeling paste, sprays and paints) 
Rhedds Creative Spirit - Altered Art (Halloween wings and paper mache heart)
