My Heart {with Eclectica³ Sara Naumann stamps by Gillian Simson}

Hello everyone, Gillian here. I'm delighted to be back this side of the blog again sharing my canvas board heart.


I applied random layers of Hint of Mint and Evergreen from the Lin Brown Ltd Edition Set2 to a 9x12 Canvas Board using a palette knife.



Next I added some Plum, making sure to dry in-between the layers. It looks way to bright at this point so I added some more Hint of Mint to knock it back. I then went on to add some Grunge Paste through the Mini Gothic Romance 6x6 stencil.



I then went over the Grunge Paste areas with some French Roast.

Next I randomly applied some Hint of Mint to a piece of Kraft Cardstock before stamping images from ESN11 using Archival Ink Jet Black .


I then applied layers of  paint to a piece of corrugated card again using a palette knife {love the effect}. 



I then stamped the heart image from ESN11 onto an old book page and the quote onto some Kraft Cardstock before cutting out. I added some Treasure Gold Spanish Topaz to the Grunge Paste textured areas and a little twine inbetween the hearts. Time to put it altogether.




Thanks for coming by tonight and hope to see you all again soon.
