April's Heart...

It's that time again already, so Thealie and Lillibule posted this months heart which features gesso and baking soda!


I've not heard of such a mixture so it promised to be a novel experience! It wasn't too bad, and it's great fun, if you don't overheat you get some great imprints... here it is before the painting...


I used various stamps, then added wooden letters and shapes covered with the mix too. I then painted with acrylics, buffed and highlighted with pearly and gold, and added depth with texture paint in orange and violet. The butterflies were embossed then highlighted with paints and copics. As I usually use wire and beads I thought I'd keep that going as I've changed the colour theme for the next 3 hearts- something bright and summery... I shall end up with 3 hearts in each seasonal change.






I really enjoyed this one... but I'm still wondering whether to add some text... or a pic...

  3. Great work. I love the wired beads around your heart. Your 3D butterflies look as if they were ready to fly away... they want to be free ;-) Lovely colors. Same for me, I always wonder whether I should add an image or some text.

  8. Très chouette d'avoir rajouté en plus les lettres en carton. L'ensemble a beaucoup de relief et fait un peu penser à de la pâte à sel.
