heARTful - Mixed Media on a ceramic heart

Hello Friends..

Today I am feeling so heARTful with this project that I have done for Mixed Media Place February Challenge. The moodboard is so magical and enchanting, full of nature.
I did mixed media on a ceramic heart that I got in a local store.

for this heart I have created layers using elements like some paper clay shapes with Prima IOD mould, Finnabair metal element which is my focal point, chipboard shapes from 2Crafty, flowers from 49 & Market and other random metal elements.
after arranging the elements over the heart, I covered them with black gesso. It is important to cover layer by layer so that you don't miss any bit.
Once everything is black and dried, I applied Finnbair metallic acrylic paints in "olive green" and "steampunk copper" using a dry brush. These paints are amazing and work equally well with dry or wet technique. Next I added highlights with Finnabair metallic wax in "white gold" which is one of my favorite shades in these waxes. 
Then I added flowers which instantly perked up the whole piece.  I wasn't sure of my focal point, then I made that small heart with paper clay. As a final touch I added art stones colored black with gesso and some micro beads. Added a quote and it's done!
