Heart Wreath for Valentine's Month

I’ve used this photo of my Wedding Day in 1968 several times, but this is the one image that came to mind when I opened up the February Mixed Media kit from Tres Jolie.

I started by applying the Fire Brick watercolor to my wreath, adding more and less water here and there and leaving some spots white.

While that was drying, I gave my chippie pieces several thick coats of gesso. Next, I applied the same gesso to my flower centers then dry brushed the petals.

Assembly was quick. First, I glued my framed photo to the wreath, adding strips of cardboard in back to add stability.
In order to extend my chipboard pieces, I cut them in half and placed them over and under my photo, reserving one piece for the cluster on the other side.

To finish my project, I added the “Love” resin word from the kit and a few resin butterflies that I’ve had for a while…
