Last week a new canvas I created was shared over on the Pretty Little Studio Blog. I also shared a little step x step which you can see at the bottom of this post.
"Our Love Story"
I grabbed a heap of 8 x 8 papers from the ‘You and Me’ Collection. I cut out 15 hearts to fit the canvas. After having a fiddle around and working out which print heart would go where (I didn’t want 2 patterns the same next to each other) I distressed the edges of each one.
I then curled the edges of each one and adhered so that the middle of the heart looked puffed up. I then added Gel Medium to the edges of the heart, keeping the gel thick which added to the texture of the hearts.
After it had dried, I applied some watercolour to the canvas. The gel acts as a resist which gave an awesome effect once the watercolour was added.
I then added some floral embellishments.
I cut the 3×4 journaling card in the shape of a heart and adhered it with foam tape to one of the top hearts. More paint splatters and Gesso were added to the embellishments. I finished off by adding a some phrase strips, stickers and arrows.
Happy Valentine's Day
