I love hunting at estate sales and garage sales. Several years ago, I found these heart-shaped Swedish Tartlet pans. They are small and perfect for assemblage projects.
My first project was created using Cranberry Alcohol Ink in the center since this particular tin had some scratches in the finish. I placed three drops of the ink in the center and rotated the tin to allow the ink to flow into each groove on the sides. This created the appearance of rays emanating from the center heart.
Next, I embellished it by simply adding a small Sizzix Tattered Banner with a stamped sentiment.
For the second Tartlet project, I found an adorable image from the Graphics Fairy. I resized it to fit the tartlet tin, printed it on cardstock, trimmed it and edged it with tinsel ribbon. To complete the assemblage, I glued the pieces to the center of the tin.
This last Valentine Art Heart Tartlet was created by cutting two Tim Holtz, Wings, Angel from Sizzix Paper Leather. Running it through my Big Shot machine, I embossed them with the Tropical Paisley Textured Impressions.
I used Distress Ink in Barn Door red on the wings. While the ink was still damp, I used a brayer to roll white acrylic paint over the surface which became pink. When the wings were completely dry, I applied Mod Podge and clear glitter.
To complete the center, I used an old red button and sweet lace to contrast with the gothic look of the wings.
I hope you like these quick and simple vintage, repurposed Valentines.
