Hello everyone it's Peggy Lee coming to you today with a little mixed media altered "Heart with Wings" art piece! This summer my daughter Emilee and I were snapping silly photos...my daughter had on cool red lip stick...with a gold studded skull shirt (which she knows I can't stand) ha ha!! 
I just love this one of her yelling OK mom I had enough-so perfect looks so steam punk rocker!
I started with a piece of cardboard traced a heart and wings....using gesso primed the cardboard piece then added some plaster with brick mask. Then grabbing my glimmer mists and inks started coloring heat setting in between colors. When dried added more texture with a thick layer of gesso with a dot fade stencil.
Using Nirvana and Mad Tea Party papers and stamping the doily from the Curious stamp set.
Added some splatters of glimmer mist and tearing holes in the heart shape paper..added some wire mesh to the back and inked edges with glimmer mist. Highlights with Gold Effects Paint and gesso lightly brushed  over raised areas.
Rolled roses from the paper collections...little gems and grunge up gear die cuts.

Lovely texture!!
Junque & Gems by Marion hanging from wire mesh and chains....adored with gems.
Embellishment shots are great for titles tucked around...along with a zip strip with label on the paper..I cut it off and saved it to tuck in around the photo to add a little pop!
There you have it my Mixed Media Altered  Heart with Wings!
Thanks for stopping by today,
Peggy Lee
