The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.Helen Keller
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It is often a day celebrated by romantics, but it can also be a day filled with love for everyone around you.
Kindness, grace, and love are three things we can offer to anyone, free of charge. So, let’s make Valentine’s Day even more meaningful this year, with more heart-felt actions and words, graciously touching those in our circle.
“The moment I read the theme I knew I wanted to do an altered heart, a dimensional piece. But what I pondered the most about was the color! I was drawn between a “classical” pink heart and something grungy and rusty. In the end I decided to add them both into the same piece!” ~ Riikka
I’ve mixed some brand new Finnabair products with some older classics in this heart. The background layer is done using one of the new tissue papers. The dimensional patterns are Icing Paste through one of the new stencils, called “Dandelion”. On top I’ve clustered older Mechanicals and brand new flowers from “Surfboard”. The finishing touches are done using the brilliant new white matte max and rust paste.

“I have had so much fun in making this project . Purple is not my favorite color, but the Art Alchemy – Metallique Acrylic Paint – French Lavender and Art Alchemy – Sparks Iris Potion are really gorgeous !!!” ~ Nathalie
I created this altered heart using all kinds of Finnabair mediums: waxes, glitter, metallique paints, etc.
First I used two different stencils on my heart background panel. Covered it all with different purple Metallique paints and the Art Alchemy – Liquid Acrylic Purple . I love how the sparks paint shine !
I layered with some pieces of the Moon Child collection papers; embellishments created with Finnabair’s moulds and gorgeous Prima flowers of course !!
