You make my heart sing...Happy Valentine's Day!


You-make-my-heart-sing

Happy Valentine's Day friends! :) Today's project is a 6x6 mixed media canvas.


I started by adhering a mix of different remnant lace pieces on the canvas with gel medium. Then I painted a layer of gesso over it to prep the surface for colorants. 


I went in with just two colours of mists - a teal and a hot pink - and you get a third shade (a purple) where the two colours meet. :) Once the mist layer is dry, I went in with some gesso to really pull out the texture and design of the intricate lace pieces.


Then I finished with some embellishments (repurposed from old projects).

P/s: Hope you are having a great week so far!
