Floral Heart Mixed Media Project

Hello everyone, I have a Design Team project to share with you today, using the new Flowering Baroque Heart clear stamp . This is such a pretty stamp, and a great addition to the clear heart stamp range.

I started my project by adhering some book pages to a chipboard heart, and once the background was dry, I coloured it with Distress Crayons; Antique Linen, Fossilized Amber, and Peeled Paint. I spritzed them lightly with water, and added a bit more here and there, moving the colour around with my fingers and a baby wipe. I dried the background with a heat gun, and stamped the heart image, using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I stamped the image again onto a pale piece of scrapbook paper, and coloured the foliage on the spare image, and the heart on the chipboard shape with Polychromos pencils.

I cut the foliage image out from the scrapbook paper, and decoupaged it onto the chipboard heart, and added some fine glitter to the stamens of the flowers. I added some gold relief paste to the edge of the heart.

To create the main background, I glued some strips of bookpaper to a chipboard square, and added layers of acrylic paint to the background, drying each layer, to avoid muddying the colours. I painted some strips of lace to tone in with the flowers, added some tiny mosaic tiles, and stamped the word 'Love', from the Words of Love stamp set. I dry brushed the edges of the panel with some dark green paint.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Gorgeous project Judith! The heart looks beautiful in the colours you've used. Have a great Sunday. Hugs, Shirleyxx

This is quite delightful - your mosaic tiles pick out the green leaves beautifully & the lace draws the eye from the left up to the flowers & across to the top right which is then superbly balanced by your sentiment. The composition is a real lesson in design as well as use of colour. The way the muted background supports the brighter flowers which in turn pick out the sort of pearliness in the lace is very effective. When you look closely at the lace it appears to be made up of lots of little mosaic tiles - something you've echoed with your green tiles. Just delightful.

I love your canvas Judith, beautifully designed and such pretty embellishments, and of course the new heart image is gorgeous, Kate X

This is a lovely project, (if you'll pardon the pun), the colours are gorgeous, a great blend of bright with the purple, balanced by the muted background tones as Paula mentioned. I always love text in any project too. That lace could be really overpowering, but the way you have added it in two sections slightly offset works beautifully. Elaine xxx
