Art – a window to the heart

by admin

Hello dear friends

I  hope you all had a wonderful crafty weekend. Today I would like to share 2 projects with you featuring some of our latest chipboard designs. You may note today’s post goes a little deeper and has a bit more heart to it than some of the others I do. Well I let you in on a secret, sometimes I just need to stop thinking and allow my hands to put my heart on paper. It’s just how I create 😉

Rectangle Collage

I started off with a scrap piece of watercolour paper and sprayed it with 13@rts spray ink. Next I added some Colour Blast Bling Paste.

I cut my chipboard piece in different parts so I could use it for all 3 ATC’s

To match the background I painted them with Finnabair Prima Alchemy Paint.

I cut 3 cards measuring 2.25 x 3.25 inches from the background I created. Next stamped each card background with Archival ink. I added some cotton and 2 of the painted chipboard pieces to each card.

Next I added my embellishments.

Last but not least I matted each card onto a black card base.

Ornate Wought Iron

I started by flicking 13@rts spray onto a white watercolour sheet and dried the spray in between the layers adding more colour as I went along.

Next I stamped the background with a script stamp and black Archival Ink.

 I then added some molding paste through a 13@rts stencil and  dried it with a heat tool.

I cut the bottom of my chipboard to “lengthen” it visually by placing it just under the photo under my embellishments.

Next I coloured the chipboard with black Archival Ink.

Once the background was dry I added some cotton and matted my photo onto black card-stock.

I covered the gap between the chipboard and photo by adding some tulle and flowers.

Last but not least I added my journalling.

Hope you enjoy it and wish you a fabulous day. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that you will visit us again soon.
