Thyme to give you The key to my HEART


Key to my HEART
is a 
Terrye French Design 
that I have painted several times


I have always loved painting this sweet design!


When painting the facial detail


it is best painted with a light touch of your brush using washes




Adding some shading and dimension


The HEARTS
 are painted in such a way to look like they were
stiched on



I added a vine and berries around the edge of the plate.


I love to paint vines.....they take a little practice






I drilled 2 holes in the side of the plate
 and 
strung a satin ribbon thru them


I addes a rusty old key 
and 
a grungy tag that says

KEY TO MY HEART



Once I had varnished my piece
 I sprayed just the pinafore part of the dress with spray glue
 then sprinkled on some 
DIAMOND DUST
for 
SPARKLE!
I am sending this plate to a 
very DEAR friend 
as a 
SURPRISE!

You can purchase this pattern at
PAINTING WITH FRIENDS


So now you have
THE KEY TO MY HEART!
I hope you like it!!!
Hugs,
Lynn
