(Almost) Total Eclipse Of The Heart

Hi everyone, Emma Godfrey here with an extra little project for this month's Heart topic.

I love making art that can be displayed in a frame, and this piece now has pride of place in my bedroom.


I cut out four hearts from some leftover scraps of painted background paper (I never throw anything away). I didn't have any heart dies, so I hand cut my hearts - I quite like the not perfect finish. I heat embossed the second largest heart using the WOW! Tropical stamp and WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale Super Fine embossing powder. I also covered the smallest heart with double sided tape and then covered it with WOW! Sparkles in Jade (see photos further down).


To create a simple background for my paper hearts, I took a sheet of book text and heat embossed hearts from the WOW! Layered Hearts stamp set, using the gold embossing powder from earlier and WOW! Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder.


I added a strip of double sided tape across the middle of the book text, and added more Sparkles before positioning the background in the picture frame mount.

I edged the hearts with some gold wax and then layered them up and glued them all in place.


Here's a close up of the final piece. I love how WOW! products can so easily jazz up leftover "rubbish" to make something so decorative. Hope you like it too!

  1. This looks beautiful in the frame Emma and I adore the prettily coloured and layered hearts and with the embossing on the hearts and in the background is just perfect. A great project to use up your bits and pieces. x
