My Tattered Heart

For Retro Cafe Art,  here is today's  DT piece which is a tattered and sparkly pin. I think my daughter may run away with it to college! We were getting ready for her return to college next week and she was packing her headbands with huge bows, triple flowers and feather pieces. I think she'll put this pin on a headband too. She definitely has such  a great style.

Well, to make this pin I used the interior of a RCA heart ATC frame and painted it purple, silver and a little  pink. The cameo image is from the RCA Vintage Jewelry 1 collage sheet. Isn't it so sweet? I love Kristin's collage sheets! I then applied my secret supply, tiny white flower and rhinestone, which are nail decals. LOL. It is edged with RCA pink German Dresden Mini Scalloped Border and put on a large purple fabric flower painted with silver paint. The final touch was the tattered tulle and pink Stickles dots.

Hope you will find something sweet this week.
artfully yours, gerri
