Heart of Gold

Gold is the challenge at Dans ma maison il y a… du doré this week.   The Neil Young song, Heart of Gold,  is the first thing that came to mind.  It’s a favorite and still speaks to me after all these years.    Music really does inspire me and has a huge impact on my every day life.  House is the challenge at TGIF this week also.

I covered a wooden heart with candy foil and painted it, adding texture with two kinds of mesh.  The wings are German scrap and I used a golden flimmersterne for the burst.
