Rust & Patina

Here is a little heart I made out of rusted card board. It is only 3 inches tall. I used copper foil  around the edges. ( treated with patina) As you can see; I was in the mood for a little steam punk. Wings are metal.
You can click on the photo for a larger view. Not sure what I'll do with the heart, it might end up on a journal
or a card. Any ideas? As always, thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend my dear friends. Stay warm!

Hugs and love,

Wow, das ist ja ganz meine Kragenweite:-) Ich denke, das würde sich sehr gut auf einem Canvas machen oder einem Shrine! Super sieht das aus, liebe Marie!

You're such an artistic girl Marie! Love your different use of materials, brilliant work!

I love the heart! I'm sure you will find a use for it.

Hi Marie
The possibilities are endless. To decorate a box, in a shadow box frame, add vintage jewellery to create a hanging, a brooch.
In your hands rust has an air of elegance.

I always enjoy any time I spend viewing your blog - simply beautiful! I love your steampunk heart (and all your "Smitten" pieces, too).

joy said...

Steampunk isn't my favorite, but this little heart wins me over - not over the top "industrial". And, of course, hearts are my favorite icon.

Susan deGeneres said...

Your steampunk heart is fantastic! I think it would be great on a journal or even on a mixed-media collage.

Neat! This would look great on a little box of some kind. An altered tin maybe?

Lululiz said...

You never fail to surprise me, I wasn't expecting this at all today, lol. What a fabulous piece though, it really appeals to me. x

Suzanne said...

I love it!

A little bit of love from a little rusty heart can go a very long way on a journal cover or collage.
Hugs, Suzy
