love is all around ... mixed media hanging heart

Good morning! May I wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Today is my first challenge of the New Year and we are looking for VERY VINTAGE at Crafts 4 Eternity.

I've created another Mixed media piece, this time a hanging heart.

I have used an mdf die cut heart as the base. It is quite big, 12 inches high!

I started off by adding some music themed cardstock, which you can just about see peeking through.

I've added lots of layers with distress stains and paint. In the above photo you can see a bit of vintage netting.

The image is by Pion Design. I've added some stamped layers and rub-ons with some Prima decoration. You should be able to see a bit of doily as one of the layers.

I have just used letter stickers for the words, which I just distressed up a bit. 

More netting.

I am entering this in at the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
