Bits and Pieces

Ove on Hels blog the Sunday Stamper theme is bits and pieces, a song by Dave Clark Five, which takes me back to my youth ( ok not quite as I am far too young to remember it..lol).
I have had in mind a piece I have wanted to make for ages, and it was inspired by an advert in a craft magazine. Remember the beads in last week's woyww post? Well I took a Maya Road heart chipboard, literally sloshed masses of glossy accents all over it, and threw the beads on top of it!
I am sure you are thinking she is mad! but actually I did tip the bottle on top of it, and this was the result.
 It looked a bit lacking in sparkle, so I sprayed a little bit of Glimmer mist on top ( where would I be without them now? lol)
The mini canvas was given a Ferro paint treatment , and then I added a little bit of Inka Gold cream wax in Rose, and more mica sprays!
I hope it qualifies for bits and pieces... think this song will be in my head all day! bits and pieces.. bits and pieces... damn! rofl..
Thank you Hels for the challenge.

Those beads look gorgeous - where would we be without the mica sprays - they make such a difference to the finished piece.
Lovely idea.
