Here is my second piece for Country View Crafts topic of "Hearts".
There was a lot of muppetry involved in the creation of this, as I was on another planet and thought that I was still in May and designing something for the flowers topic!
However, just before I finished I realised that it was "Hearts" and was able to redeem it!
I have a dresser in my kitchen with lots of beautiful plates and mugs and decided to have a go myself. So, I selected a white plate and covered it with clear gesso to give me a dull surface to work on.
Using Black Stazon, I stamped some flowers from 2 PaperArtsy designers...Lin Brown, ELB25, and Jo Firth Young, JOFY14.
You will notice that I also stamped a sentiment but it was wonky, so I painted over it!
Next are my colours and here was my inspiration.
And the Fresco paints that I chose.
After a while it dawned on me that I was on the wrong months' topic, so I grabbed a heart stamp from PaperArtsy Squiggly Ink SM05 and dotted some hearts frantically around!
Finally I sealed it with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.
So, here is the finished plate, happy with it and will add it to the collection on my dresser.
Plenty of time to join in with our topic of Hearts. We look forward to seeing your entries, and you never know, you may be the lucky winner drawn out for the £20 prize over on Country View Crafts!
