Today I have made these two hearts, using chalky paints, I was only going to make one in this colour, but tipped out a wee bit too much paint lol, so I had to scoop some back into the pot and still had enough to make the second one. Chalky Paint goes such a long way ! So, the first one I covered the base with this lovely lilac colour called Remembrance and then using a sponge I randomly daubed the pink ( Innocence ) over the top. The second heart, I used the same colours but applied the pink first then daubed the lilac on top.
When using MDF, don’t forget to use your Gesso first.
Once the chalky paint had been applied, I used dusty concord and Black Soot distress ink around the edges, then stamped my verse in black archival.
I added a flourish around the outside, using Versamark and clear embossing powder.
The flower is Heartfelt Delicate Aster which I also distressed with Dusty Concord and Black Soot, the leaves I distressed with Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint.
To finish off I added a Wink of Stella in clear and Glossy Accents to the leaves and flower, a piece of cord and some wooded beads which I also coloured with a Purple pro marker.
And my second heart of the day
For this heart I have used a verse from Stampendous and then a Clarity stamp Hanging Vine which I embossed in white. Then distressed the edges going over the vines just to take the brightness out of the white.
The flowers are from Heartfelt Majestic Morning distressed with Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserve I added a touch of Wink of Stella in silver to the tips of the flowers and then once glued together I coated them with varnish and added a pearl to each one.
To finish off I added a wooden butterfly which I also coloured in Dusty Concord and silver Wink of Stella, added some cord and beads.
Thanks for popping in, enjoy the rest of your Sunday xx
