Love heart

Hello everyone I'm over at Country View Crafts today with my 2nd piece for this month, which is a decorated heart.

 

I started by glueing down my elements with heavy Matt Medium and left overnight to dry. The following day 
I painted it all with white Acrylic.

 
I loved how the white chunky embossing powder added a random texture throughout. You can also see
some layers of spray ink which I sprayed and then dab off with a clean towel. I did this several times building up 
The colour.

 

I loved the pastel colours but I wanted it to go in my bathroom and act as a contrast to the other colours 

So added the blue and a touch of brown to add a vintage feel

 


Last look at the whole thing


 Thanks so much for popping by
Take care

A pair of Tags

Hello everyone, thank you for joining me today, as I'm sharing a couple of Tags I created this morning. Over last few months I have struggled with creating anything, through lack of inspiration, motivation etc. I'm sure many of have experienced this from time to time, so know how I feel, and how frustrating it is too.  I had more time, and  space to create and yet found  that I had less interest! Equally I had a burning need to create lol. So it's was all a bit hit and miss. Hopefully my muse is back from her vacation and creativity will continue. 

I have also been working hard behind the scenes with secret stuff which I cannot tell you about yet, but watch this space! 

Now onto my Tags 

 


 

Both backgrounds were created the same way, lots of Distress Oxides my favourite products at the moment, some mica powders for some shimmer, old script, and circles. On top of which I painted a coat of crazing medium which gave a tiny crackle. The stamps are from Rubber Dance, designed by the fabulous Katy Leitch, stamped onto smoothly card and tinted with water colour.

Here are the steps for each Tag and some close ups

 


 

 

 
 


 
On this tag below I added some washy tape

 


 

 

 

Last look at them together

 

I hope you like them and enjoyed the seeing the different steps, your feedback is always appreciated!

Take care and stay creative

So I hope you can pop over and take a look. Enter the draw and you could win £20 to spend in the shop.



 

I only used 1 Stencil but used different colours as well as turning the Stencil around as well as back to front 


 


 


 

I added a touch of red acrylic to contrast with the blues and greens. Then drew my hearts.


 

I painted them pink but didn't like them...


 

So change them to blue, with Distress crayons to add shading and light
edged with a black pencil. I then added the Distress Ink





Lastly added my sentiment
