A Loving Heart

Evening all.  This evening I have a project over on the PaperArtsy blog.  The theme for the fortnight is 'Love is in the Air'.

For my project I have done a spin on the traditional colour theme associated with 'love'.

I started by painting a 6x6 inch grey board panel with Heavy Cream Fresco acrylic paint.

I then brayed Niagra Falls Fresco acrylic paint over the panel, ensuring that you could still see plenty of the Heavy Cream.

I used a new PaperArtsy Sara Naumann stencil randomly using Gold Rush Fresco acrylic paint.  I love these colours together.

I created a pool of colour using Midnight Fresco acrylic paint.  Once this was dry (which was very quick) I stamped the two hearts from PaperArtsy Sara Naumann ESN11.

This was then cut out.

The hearts are a new release from Lisa Horton Crafts.  But shhhhh they are not released for another week!

The hearts were painted using Niagra Falls Fresco acrylic paint and then stamped using Gold Rush, using new PaperArtsy Sara Nauman stamps.

These were attached to the grey board panel.

To finish, I stamped a sentiment from PaperArtsy Sara Nauman ESN11 and inked around the edges.

I really enjoyed making this panel and more so because I used colours that I love!

Thank you for joining me this evening.  

Make sure you pop over to the PaperArtsy blog to see inspiration from the other bloggers.

Happy Crafting!
