Hello and welcome 💙
Today I'm sharing a project that is now sitting next to my bed. I had a little 8x8 frame which was perfect for this project.
For the bottom plaque I first added a coat of Heavy Black Gesso. After I let this sit for a minute, I used a baby wipe to remove the excess from the top and sat it aside to dry. I then added a little Heavy White Gesso to this. The reason I added the black first was to darken the quote and allow it to stand out more.
I took a little wooden heart and coloured it with water and Peacock Shimmer Dust. I did a really concentrated layer and heat dried it. This gave that really dark shade and I used a baby wipe to remove a lot of the colour. This has given the heart a nice rustic type look.
I have used Bling Embossing Powder to colour some wings which have been made with paper clay. To colour the little balls I put in the bottle, I used a little dry Shimmer Dust.
The metal key and birdcage have been coloured with Heavy White Gesso. All these have been layered up with a few stars and balls and lots of matte gel.
Hope you've been inspired 💙
