Colourcraft Love Heart Valentine's Day Mixed Media Canvas

Hello crafty friends

I am back with a love themed project today for Colourcraft.
These wooden hearts are available at The Works for a pound.

Start off by applying gesso to a heart shaped plaque. 
Add a layer of crackle paint and allow it to set.
Allow first layer to dry and then apply a stencil around the plaque and leave to set.

Spritz water over the base and sprinkle on OST Red and Rose Red Brusho Crystal Powders.
Once dry take a selection of embellishments, lace, wooden shapes and charms. glue them down the centre of the plaque and allow the glue to set before painting everything with a coat or two of white gesso.

 Then spray with Scarlet and Copper Misting Sprays/
Add a few blobs of glue around the canvas and sprinkle on glass glitter and micro beads.

Thank you for visiting
