Paperartsy Challenge - Hearts


Thanks for dropping in to see my blog today.

The current challenge theme over at Paperartsy is 'hearts' you can find out all the info about the challenge HERE

So I'm continuing my plan of creating a loose journal page for each challenge to bind at the end of the year, so here is my hearts page:

It was created on 10 x 7 canvas textured acrylic paper.

The background was made using Fresco paints in Caribbean Sea, Bougainvillea and Tangerine Twist then I brayered over it with Snowflake.

Added a bit of stencilling with Elephant And Snowflake and then a bit of grunge paste here and there.

I drew the heart on some old book paper and also stamped the quotes from Sara Naumann plate ESN11 on the plain part of the same book page.

The heart was emphasised using a black Stabilo All pencil and I also added some mini Tim staples to the heart and the quotes.

A bit of washi and some Little Black Dress drips and smudgey border and I think it's complete.

Thanks for looking,
