Canvas | Love

“Hello!  With Valentines Day coming up I wanted to share with you this sweet little canvas I created.   I grabbed a heap of 8 x 8 papers from the ‘You and Me’ Collection.  I cut out 15 hearts to fit the canvas.  After having a fiddle around and working out which print heart would go where (I didn’t want 2 patterns the same next to each other) I distressed the edges of each one.  I then curled the edges of each one and adhered so that the middle of the heart looked puffed up.  I then added Gel Medium to the edges of the heart, keeping the gel thick which added to the texture of the hearts.  After it had dried, I applied some watercolour to the canvas.  The gel acts as a resist which gave an awesome effect once the watercolour was added.  I then added some floral embellishments.  I cut the 3×4 journaling card in the shape of a heart and adhered it with foam tape to one of the top hearts.  More paint splatters and Gesso were added to the embellishments.  I finished off by adding a some phrase strips, stickers and arrows.  ”
