Vintage Heart Collage 2

Glue paper to cover the heart, then paint it cream. Wipe off excess paint.

Rub Fired Brick ink over the painted heart and accent the edges with Vintage Photo Ink.

Press word stickers on the center of the heart and apply a coat of Mod Podge Gloss over the whole heart for added shine.

To hang as an ornament, poke a small hole through the top of the heart. Fold a 6″ piece of twine in half, thread bead onto twine.  Knot on both sides of the bead to keep in place. Add small dab of craft glue into hole and insert both ends of twine.
