Good morning my lovelies, its our new challenge over at We Love 2 Create and as usual our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes'. You don't have to use our products to play along and our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous goodies thanks to our generous sponsors Premium Craft Brands.
I've altered an MDF heart to create a summery project. I began with a coat of white gesso and covered part of the heart with a dictionary page, Once that was dry I used a Dutch Doobadoo rose stencil to create the roses down the left hand side using my PanPastels (links to colours I've used are at the bottom of this post). I sealed the colour with a little hairspray and then replaced the stencil and added a layer of Maimeri Glassy Gel medium. I removed the stencil, applied a layer of microbeads and left it to dry. Here's a close up of the lovely sparkle this technique creates.
Once that was dry I added the stamped flowers, usingFloribunda Net from Chocolate Baroque, coloured with PanPastels. The sentiment is from Rose Stem Script, also from Chocolate Baroque. I've using gilding wax around the edge of the hart. I've added a little metal butterfly, some pearl trim, pink ribbon topped with a little button.
