Two Hearts by Lisa Oxley

Howdy Colour Lovers, Lisa here with a Colour Blast Blog update.
Its recently been Valentines day, which I love, because, its about Love .
Giving Love, Acknowledging Love, Spreading love, Being Loved .
And whats more lovely that a wedding? .
These are 2 of my wonderful Belguin friends who, invited us to their special event,
 but alas, financial restrictions made it so we were unable to attend. ho hum
Lucky for us they Honeymooned here in Australia and
 I was able to enjoy their company and swipe their photos to use in my layouts,
so I have created 2 similar pieces , in the spirit of celebrating love.
When I create backgrounds, I usually use the stencil I am creating with more than once.
( To get the most out of ones wet mediums and to keep flow going.)

 While creating both pieces, I worked wet, hence the mottled distribution of colour on the piece below. I then used a stencil and textured the Royalty and Fire Engine textured colour paste on in a random shape, creating an illusion of a heart. When the texture was dry, I enhanced the heart form by  #1 using drippy black house paint #2 using a black pen and a few off cuts of Hambly Transparency.
I love the effect the Colour Blast Colour Paste creates, adding an extra relief element, it is a lovely enhancement to any layout you create.

Love and Blessings to you all, see you next month.
