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 :)
