Bright Heart LO

Hello! I'm back with my latest LO.

I'm always faithful to my Gothic Fairytale style and to my everyday inspiration. Of course I had to put something bright in the branch heart as the childrens heart is always bright.

I used the canvas Corp paperson the bottom – this one is the Tan and Ivory Ribbon Stripe. The white background paper is from Tattered Angels Pure Mistable Papers -  Seersucker. I love their textures and they can be misted but their versatility goes way beyond misting!

The heart is made by using the Tattered Angels High Impact Paint. I use a thin brush, sometimes even a toothpick to make the branches. The pigments in these paints are very strong and the paint really gives dimension to the painted.

The metal embellishment are from 7Gypsies and they continue the gothic fairytale style - they match the thread stitches, the broken buttons and everything else.

That was the latest...... a new one is already in my mind... maybe in a couple of days.

Baloon canvas

I'm already back with a new canvas project. I used another 12x12 canvas from Canvas Corp and created a baloon in the sky:

I used the 7Gypsies paper Postale to make the baloon. I distressed it and sew it together. I made a mini man and put it inside the baloon basket to explore the universe. For the clouds I used the Sizzix elegant Flourish Die. I covered it with crackle paint and after dry with some glossy varnish. The metal embellisments are from 7Gypsies as well.

I hope you are exploring your universe too. I'm having some busy days waiting to me because I'm preparing my book to be released in September and there are always milions of projects in my life. Let's try to realize some of them :-) Have a lovely summer!
