Building The Nest

Moving along to the next set of pages in the Book of Hearts, and here they are. Love gives you wings. (Contrary to the words of wisdom currently being espoused in a certain advertisment that tries to sell some form of liquid refreshment). The frame is constructed using texture paste, acrylics, stamping, polished pigments tulle and other assorted odds and sods. Grungeboard wings and an old heartshaped frame that had a wee makeover as well.
(You can click on the pics to see the detail if you like).

So behind the doors...

They build their nest. Here are my grandparents not long after they have married, building their nest together.

I wanted a little something different for this page so after being all inspired after browsing through the fabulous Ruth Rae's blog..there was the answer. To construct my own set of soulful doors. I really enjoyed this process. Being away from the usual chaotic work bench and doing something different was lots of fun. Might have to make some more of these for myself!

They built a wonderful nest together.
