Sweet Hearts....

September already....where did the rest of the year go, lol.
Over at Altered Eclectics they have launched their challenge for always it is only for Altered Art & Mixed Media definately no Papercrafts.
My project this month was to use up some small solid wood cubes and some mdf hearts....( the hearts are from Fernli Designs)

The cubes measure 4.5cms and the hearts are 5cms across....these have been hanging around in my craft room for I decided to make use of them.

I covered the cubes and added an extra cut out image and word, then distressing the edges with frayed burlap distress ink.

I added glossy accents to the word and images on the cubes...unfortunately the photo dsoen't show this too well.

After covering the hearts with designer papers, I distressed the edges,the same as the cubes and added embellishments.
The words were then added and they were the covered with glossy accents...which do show slightly in this image.
To attach the hearts I made a hole in each cube with my bradawl.
 Using kebab sticks,I hot glued the hearts to the sticks,then pushed them in to the cubes....
These are now on my dressing table and I am pleased with how they look...
Hope to see you over at the challenge,which you can find here...

I love them all Sandie, especially the cubes. I wonder if my hubby could make me some of them to alter ?.
Thank you so so much for adding my freebies to your side bar. I truly appreciate it.
