    2. Instruction #1
    3. Brush different sections of the wooden heart with the various red color washes from Step 1. (The color variation is very subtle but creates a pretty finished product that doesn't look flat.)
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Use the left-over color wash to paint a dictionary page on the front and the back.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Use a foam sponge to wipe Renaissance Brown (Glaze) into the spaces on the wooden heart. (This gives it a little more depth and variation.)

    10. Instruction #5
    11. Die-cut flower and petals from the dictionary pages using a flower die-cut of your choice. Brush Luminous Gold (Glaze) over the cut pieces.
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Use the handle end of a paintbrush to curl and form the petals and the paper flower.
    14. Instruction #7
