"Cherish Your Heart" with Karan Gerber

"Cherish Your Heart"
Mixed Media with Karan


Hi friends and welcome! Its Karan here to host the Blog today. 


Our Heart, we trust easy; we give freely; out of the goodness of our "Heart".  In the end,
 its our "Heart" that we often wear on our sleeve;; Only do what your "Heart" Tells you;
 A gentle heart is tied with easy thread; so many sayings in regards to the Heart.

 So today I have a project to share with you, that is close to my "Heart" I am calling it...
 "Cherish" Your Heart'



I started with a 6x6 embroidery hoop, cut a piece of unprimed canvas; set it in the frame;
 and off I went.  2 Crafty has some fabulous titles, and I love this Cherish one, so
finely cut and beautifully detailed , I felt it was perfect for my project today.

 I loved the Chained Heart too and wanted to incorporate it too,
so this started as the base of my project. 



After priming the canvas; and placing the heart I wanted to add some intricate detail so the 
Element set fit perfect for this, after adding two coats of Seth Apters Baked Texture Embossing powder, I adhered it all down. The title was given two coast of Baked Texture Ancient Amber


I love the detail of the Element Set, perfect for what I wanted to use them for. 
I placed one of the top of the heart, and one at the bottom tip of the heart.  


I added in some metal pieces as well as some various pieces of resin too.


I splatted some red ink on the chipboard pieces. I know we all have scars; have likely suffered broken hearts, and cried a thousand tears, the red coming out of the top and bottom of the heat, signifies this,  the splatters of color on the resin heart represent our hurts, our sorrows, our losses.  But the bright red heart keeps going, keeps living even with the scars; we are beautiful, we are strong!
 we are courageous!

The gears, constantly changing and moving to keep the heart going,
 the Chained heart, keeps us linked together; heart to heart. 

So Cherish your Heart!


I hope you have enjoyed todays project! Here are the chipboard pieces I used today!

Happy Scrapping!
