Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Hi Everyone

I am so excited to have been asked to join in the Valentine Blog Hop as I have never done one before so it's a real first for me :)  It gives me a chance to play with my Imagination Crafts goodies (not that I need an excuse...lol).

So I decided to create this gorgeous little heart canvas for you.

I used a white primed heart canvas. Firstly, I painted the surface with Imagination Crafts Rusty Patina in Duck Egg, spritzed with water and then added small areas of Rusty Patina in Soot.  I added more water to make the paints move together.  Allowed to dry.





Next I added some stencilling using Imagination Crafts Structure Paste through a Mandala stencil design.  Dry.  Using Starlight Paints in Orange, Banana Yellow and Rusty Patina in Rustique, I added some colour over the dried pasted design. Once dried I added detail script with a stencil.




I took some MDF Cogs from my crafty stash and added the Rusty Patina in Rustique over the entire surface of each.  I then applied more Rusty Patina to build the texture.  Once dry I added some highlight areas using the Starlight Paints in Orange and Banana Yellow and glued the pieces in position.



Finally, I added Structure Paste through a stencil to add detail to the MDF Bird.  Allowed to dry and then I painted the bird with Rusty Patina in Duck Egg and added gold highlights with Imagination Crafts Alchemy Wax in Inca Gold.  To finish the edges I added a little Rusty Patina in Soot.

I hope you like my project and enjoy the other designers creations.  Take a journey through the blog hop :)
