MILAGROS HEART






I thought I was done with challenges for today but then I was wandering around blogs earler and spotted that the challenge on Big Art Adventure is Milagros Hearts and I just had to have a go!!
I love hearts in general but milagros hearts are just something special!

I have a friend who lives in New Mexico and on visits there I have bought several nichos and amongst them a couple of hearts.

Here is my version, I used Ten Seconds Studio metal working tools to get the patterned effects and black acrylic paint for the aged look.
