For my DT project for Creative Expressions this week, I thought I'd create a painty panel........ yes yes, I know....I ALWAYS seem to be doing painty panels!!! My favourite thing to make though, so I'm not apologising!! Here is Joyful Heart..
white paint, then heating them. The thick layers bubble up and create some fabulous texture. All the texture on the background is just heated up paint!
I smeared on Pool and Citrus paint, then brayered lightly with Black to give the grungy look, and to highlight the texture further. A little Purple Twilight paint was smeared on too, then I got busy with the stamping...
Chicken Wire, a grid pattern from the Urban Beat plate, AlphaWriting and the mini hearts from the featured stamp plate this month, Hearts Entwined.
Multi Medium both under and on top of the tissue...
You can see the difference here...... the centre of the heart wasn't painted, so all the background shows through, but the filigree parts 'pop' with the white behind them....
red, then added a gloss glaze.
The 'joy' comes from my fav alphabet set just now, Sam Pooles Clear Mini Alphas.
I think the red really adds to the more muted grungy colour scheme, hope you like it too!
