Here is my project - it's a Mixed Media project using Rubberstamp Concepts new EcoArt Boards and the "Draw and Gild" kit from UsArtQuest.  So excited to show you this fun project. 
Supply List include link of most of the product used:
Draw and Gild Kit from UsArtQuest witch includes Duo Embellishment Adhesive, GildenGlitz, Fine Liner, Peal Ex (purple)
Acrylic Paint:  Red and Blue
Die Cuts:  Key and Key Hole
Two Gold Brads
Jewels Watercolor Palette from UsArtQuest
6" x 6" EcoArt Board from Rubberstamp Concepts
Chip board - for Die cuts
Paper Clay
Sweetbrier Studio Heart Mold


1)  Using Red Acrylic draw and paint a heart onto 6" x 6" EcoArt Board. 
2)  Paint using Blue Acrylic Paint around the outside of heart - completely painting all of the EcoArt board. 
3)  Die Cut a both a Key and Key Hole using chip Board (Hint:  use your cereal boxes for free chip board).  Both of the Dies I used are Tim Holtz new Sizzix Die's
4)  Paint Duo Adhesive onto both Die and set aside to dry.  When the Duo Adhesive dries is turns clear and tacky.  When Duo Adhesive is Tacky add "Gold" Gildenglitz to Key Hole and "Copper" Gildenglitz to Key.  HINT:  I paint my Duo on with a paint brush - remember to clear brush off when done.
5)  Using Sweetbrier Studio Heart Mold - add Paper clay to mold and set aside to dry or set into 250 degree oven to dry in minutes.  When PaperClay Heart is dry - paint on Duo Adhesive and set aside to dry.  When Duo is tacky add "Copper" Gildenglitz
6)  Adhere all of your Die Cut Embellishment and Paper Clay Heart - remember to add your gold brad to your key hole die.  :-)  
7)  Using the Gold Paint from the Jewels Watercolor Palette - add Gold Mica Paint to Fine Liner Tool or Toy as I always call them.  Draw gold line around the heart and draw waves from the heart (see sample)  Also using your "Fine Liner" write "A Work of Heart" inside of Red Acrylic Heart. 
Remember to sign your master piece.  :-)
