Key to my heart

Hi Everyone,
This time of year is all about family and friends. This is my little homage to having friends that are really family and how lucky I am to have them in my life.

Using Mixed Media Heavystock paper blend on several colors of Distress Ink.  Add a bit of distress oxide ink and flick with water.  Allow to air dry to get oxide effects.  Once the paper is completely dry, stamp the Small Crackle Stamp using archival ink.
Using other shades of archival ink stamp your Floral Medallion.  Cut the paper and cover your chipboard shape.Splatter on black and brass paint to add dimension to the background.   Don't forget to paint the edges of your chipboard unless you like the look of raw chipboard.
Cover your paper doll with clear gesso.  Once the gesso is dry color your image.  Stick to the same palette you used for the background.
Glue the family to the chipboard piece and add charms.  Add scribbles all over the front using gel pens.  
Cut up a chip quote and paint the edges.  Glue the quote to the backside of the house. 
There is a pre-drilled hole in the top of this chipboard house.  Thread wire through the hole and wrap around a key that had been distressed to appear aged.
