Hearts Aflutter


Shea here with Glitter and Bonbons to show you a canvas board I made.  I've never done something like this before and had a lot of fun with this one.  I'm calling it my "CAS" attempt because I can promise that my future canvases will have more stuff on them.

I started out with a layer of sheet music, then gessoed over the top of that.  Unfortunately, I think I applied a little too much as it's now a bit difficult to see the music.  Live and learn.  I then painted the piece with blue and turquoise acrylic paints over which I painted CI Paints in Sky Blue and Aqua Marine.  Instant shimmer!  A brick stencil airbrushed with Copics finished the background layer.

The cheesecloth was painted with Autumn Wheat and Rustic Red with touches of Gold here and there. 

The centerpiece heart is grunge board on which I used the Faux Cloisonne Technique using Rustic Red, Aqua Marine and Royal Purple.  A couple of gold bead caps nestle the red Jeweled Inspiration nicely. 

The little hearts are painted with Rustic Red and the wings were painted with Fairy Dust then glittered up a bit with Resplendence Angel Dust.
Thank you so much for joining me, and don't forget to visit our latest challenge, Inspired By: Red, White and Blue!

Happy crafting!
