Heart and Soul

Hello friends

I hope you are all good!
Just a really quick blog post today to share with you this make...

I created this mini box using some old bolts, an old camera parts, a butterfly from Tim Holtz Botanicals ephemera pack and some rust paste and Art stones from Finnabair.... 

I added some rusty wire and stitched into the butterfly.... 
The words are from Tim Holtz too ( clippings - idea-ology)

I really love the effect from the rust paste....
please feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each one...
Sorry its such a quick post, it's the easter break here so I'm really enjoying spending some time with my family and friends xx
