I started off with a chipboard Heart and Deco Art Texture Sand Paste.
Once dry, I set about using Deco Art Mixed Media paints and covered the heart in Quinacridone Red and Quinacridone Burnt Orange.
Once this was dry, I added more colour to add shading and depth (that sounds like I knew what I was doing - lol!! 0 I just pay until I'm happy)
Next, I stamped a Tim Holtz Ponderings quote onto Tissue Wrap. This was then added to the heart with Matte Medium.
It was at this point I realised that this should have been the second step of my project as the tissue paper was not coloured. To rectify, I added the same coloured paints and tried to blend the tissue into the heart as much as possible. This is how it was after the painting.
To finish I edged the heart with black paint. I also added lots of watch parts and Prima mechanicals.
I punched a hole and added brown twine.
Here is a close up of the texture on the heart.....
I really enjoyed this project and actually learnt things from it too!
I hope that I have inspired you to join in the challenge this month - there is still time - and a gift voucher up for grabs.
Thanks for looking.
