PaperArtsy October Challenge 'My Heart' by Gillian Simson

Hello Everybody and welcome.
Over on the PaperArtsy blog Gillian Simson has been back this week and I was inspired by her wonderful project 'My Heart' which you can see here.
I really love the heart stamp but I have no chance to use until today! Thank you Gillian!!
I started to make background by 8x8 chipboard. I covered book pieces and painted by fresco Chocolate Pudding, Nougat and matt clay. After Fresco paint dried I wiped out some place.

I dipped the tissue paper in fresco Chocolate Pudding with water. I then glued the tissue paper onto the background and I used TH some stencil by grange paste and Little Black Dress fresco onto the tissue paper. Gillian used grange paste too!!
I made tags and stamped Sara Naumann's ESN11, ENS10, stamps by Archival Potting Soil. I die cut chipboard by TH's Weathered Clock and used embossing powder.
Gillian applied layers of  paint to a piece of corrugated card using a palette knife. I then followed with her, It was a very easy and effective!! Thank you Gillian!! 
I used TH's die Tattered Pinecone to made rose flower, it painted Little Black Dress fresco and I was spray some gold glitter but can't see it! 
I painted Nougat fresco onto some dark brown paper and I stamped lovely Sara's ESN11 heart by Archival Jet Black. Finally I stamped sentiment by Marilyn Monroe.
This is My Heart.  

Thank you stopping by and have a wonderful day!
