Hello Mixed Media friends !

 

After a few weeks of absence, I am coming back with a new altered object: an altered fan.

In my opinion, fans are the most delicate and feminine accessories there can be. They have a very special place in my heart.

One of the very first object I altered was a fan. And I loved it. Last year, inspired by Frank Garcia, I made a shabby chic pink altered fan. I gave it to a friend of mine who basolutely loved it and asked me to make a similar one, in mint/blue.

Therefore, I came up with this one :

I used white gesso, mint paint, an hand-molded heart frame, a bit of mint gilding paste, Prima flowers, a chipboard piece, butterflies die cuts and lots of ribbons and trims (lace, satin...), and of course, some 3D gel to keep everything in place. 

I think it is absolutely adorable. What do you think ? You can see below more details.
