I have made this encaustic heart for this month's Altered Eclectics' anything goes challenge. Altered Eclectics is an exciting challenge blog for mix media, altered art, up-cycling and recycling.
I am new to playing with encaustic wax so I had fun experimenting with the medium. To make my project I first used an encaustic iron to add the colours (purple, silver and turquoise) my background. I added some glass beads to the wax for some sparkle. I used a similar method to make my heart and mounted it on white cardstock before adding it to the background.
The key and stars are metal pieces that I used wax to adhere them to the project. To complete the piece I used my encaustic stylus tool to add the lettering and the black trim around the edges of the heart.
Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day. Remember to stop by the Altered Eclectics blog to see the projects that the talented design team has created to inspire you.
