Hi guys! It’s Bre from Brepurposed back for another great tutorial for you. I’m here to show you how to make this super cute Gold Leaf Heart Art! This was my first time using Gold Leaf and it definitely takes some practice, but it’s so worth it! Let’s get to it :)
Here are the supplies you’ll need:
1 :: Mod Podge
2 :: Gold Leaf
3 :: Foam Brush
4 :: Gold Pyramid Studs
5 :: Card Stock
STEP 2: Place the cut out heart over another piece of card stock and apply your Mod Podge.
I’m not gonna lie, it took me quite a few times to get a good looking heart. Between having sticky fingers from the mod podge and the gold leaf breaking apart, things kept going wrong! Just be careful with your gold leaf because it’s SUPER delicate.
STEP 5: Grab another sheet of card stock and cut out a matte to frame your heart.
STEP 6: Glue your pyramid studs on to create the look of corner braces!
And that’s it! Like I said, it can definitely be tricky working with the gold leaf because it breaks apart super easily. Just be prepared to have a gold covered surface after you’re done!
You can frame it or leave it as is! Gold foil prints are super popular right now and I was so excited to finally get my hands on some gold leaf. The possibilities are endless with this stuff and I can’t wait to use it on some more projects!
Until next time, my friends :)
