Heart Canvas

Do you believe it more than one blog post on the same day!! Well I have been having a play today out in my shed..and really enjoying myself I might add. I have another piece for the paper artsy challenge hearts which you can go and check out here..some lovely stuff I can tell you..

Well here is my second entry a tiny little canvas I found in my stash. I used the back of so it is more of a frame. I gave it all a coat of gesso then painted it in little black dress. I then gave it a coat of white fire..new fresco colour..love it!!
When that was nearly dry I wiped it back with a baby wipe then added some bead gel and left that to dry. I painted a little mdf filmstrip frame thingy with the white fire and stamped it with a small script stamp in black archival. I cut a tiny heart out in greyboard using a die and gave it a coat of little black dress then some crackle medium. I dabbed on some white fire and although it didn't really crack it left a nice texture. I rubbed bourgainvillea paint over it then wiped it back. I also added the bougainvillea to the frame. I then used thick enamel embossing gel on the heart to give it a nice shine and stuck the filmstrip frame and the heart into the canvas. I touched the bead gel up with white fire TG and a little bit around the edge of the frame to tie it all in..

Thanks for stopping by...............................................
