Hello everyone, welcome to friends and followers alike, today I am sharing a project created for Countryview Crafts where the challenge theme this month is "Add Some Texture"
Here is a close up of the heart, I spent quite some time getting the colour in the recessed bits, (I mixed a variety of red and brown paints to get the shade I was after) and applied it with a small brush. I then dry brushed the raised bits with white paint to bring them out a bit more.
Some random background stamping and strips of tissue tape added another layer of texture, or if not texture then at least some further interest, I also added some white splatters to lighten it all up a bit.
Some words created with the help of Tim Holtz chit chat and small talk stickers and a few doodles with a white pen finished it all off.
I'll leave you with a few close ups:
Adding shadows always helps to create more depth, I used a Stabilo All pencil for this
Some of my favourite words coming straight from the heart :o)
Some rather messy highlights with a white pen around the numbers, just to bring them out a bit more.
The finished piece all done. Hope you like it.
There is still plenty of time to play along with our challenge, so if you have not done so yet, I hope you'll decide to play along. Apart from having fun with playing with texture, you could also win a £20 voucher from our generous sponsor Countryview Crafts.
Hope to see you there!
Have a great weekend
