Mixed media heart


I have had lots of fun making a canvas with my new heart stencil:

Having primed the canvas with white gesso, I then stamped IndigoBlu's crackle stamp background over the canvas.  I then used clear embossing paste over the stencil and, once it had dried, I painted over the canvas in dark blues and greys, wiping it off the stencilled heart.  I then stamped and white embossed some Stamploration stamps around the edges to add to the distressed look.

I mounted the canvas on white and navy cardstock and put it into a white box frame.

It shows that the stencil can be used for home d├ęcor pieces as well as cards and papercraft projects.  You can find it in my Folksy shop.

I will link this canvas up at That's Crafty where the current challenge is to use predominantly blue on your project and at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge where the theme is to 'ring in the new'.  I am using my new stencil on this project.  As I have used some Stamploration stamps I shall also link up at their monthly mixed media challenge which is anything goes other than a card.

I hope you like it!
