The challenge theme on It's all About ... is Beading Beauties.
I made a template & cut out a heart from plain Grungeboard.
I painted it with acrylic paint (Cranberry).
Taking the template I pierced through the grungeboard
to make the pattern for my beads.
I took beading wire & threaded rocailles onto the heart.
The pair of wings are from a mini Grungeboard sheet.
I coloured it gold, then dry brushed a little of the acrylic paint over the top.
The base is mountboard, painted then edged with a Krylon 18ct gold leafing pen.
Some doodles, some gold Stickles, a strip of magnet along the back
& my beaded beauty was complete.
