All about Beads

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.
