Begin Each Day With A Grateful Heart Decor Piece

This decor piece started out as a wall hanging, but after I caught sight of Linda's shabby chic project on her blog The Funkie Junkie, I switched gears. I haven't done a challenge for a long while, but she truly inspired me to go for this. I love what she created, so I incorporated some of her ideas into mine... the corrugate, the embossing and the Thinlits leaves.

My base is fabric from Tim's Textile Surfaces colored with Vintage Photo Distress Stain. The papers are Authentique Harvest and a free sheet from a Stampington magazine, with heavily distressed edges (scissors and VP Distress ink).

I colored the cheesecloth with more VP Distress Stain. The big bloom is an old Recollections from Michaels, the burlap leaves are by Prima, the smaller inky leaves were cut with Alterations Thinlits Fall Foliage, the natural burlap string is by May Arts.

In addition to distressing the Authentique sentiment ATC edges, I did some splatters using Tim's Speckles Layering Stencil and super heavy gesso by Liquitex. I also applied some with a pallet knife to give it more grunge.

The Stampington paper was embossed with Tim's Blueprint Texture Fade. I applied some Golden Light Molding Paste with the Speckles LS then sprinkled on Distress Vintage Photo embossing power and heat set. That gave it a rusty sort of look. 
The gem is a vintage Prima. The metal corner pieces are from Linda's shop, as are most of my supplies.

The keys epoxy sticker is another ancient item from my stash from a company called Bottle Cap Inc.

I'm entering my decor piece in the following challenges:
Frilly and Funkie - What a "Mesh"
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!

Omg, I'm thinking winner, and though there is stiff competition at F&F, your layers are... I can't even... LOL! I love the neutral palette with the bold flower accent and the cheesecloth adding the soft vintage vibe.
