Altered Mini Canvas Heart Necklace


With Valentine's Day coming up this weekend, I've been
busy making Valentine decorations, handmade cards, etc....
So this got me thinking why not a piece of jewelry!

Here is my altered
"Mini Canvas Heart Necklace"


I gathered up some items new and old...vintage finds!



It all started with a Canvas Corp Mini Canvas Banner Shape.
I colored my raw canvas piece with Tattered Angels glimmer mist.
Folded the mini canvas shape in half, cut out a heart shape.


Here is some yummie color mists and glaze!!
Lobster, Red Chillies, Wedding Pink, Woven Burlap
and Plumeria Glimmer Glaze.


Time to embellish!!
I first covered my heart with a stencil
and modeling paste let it dry.
Punched my holes added eyelets 
to create my chain through.


The open space was great to tuck in
7Gypsies lace just having it peeking out.
Gathered some vintage lace, trims and buttons 
to embellish!


Enjoy the close up photos...





Thanks for stopping by today.

Hope this inspires you to gather a few supplies
and create your own altered jewelry.

Need a few of the items I used, jump over to the 
Canvas Corp Brands site and shop away! HERE

~LOVE~
