Valentines week - Karen

Today will be a lovely hanging project with Karen. As she says, it is not quite finished as she will add some wedding pictures in the centre. You could also easily add pictures in some of the hearts too.
Karen used the new Tando Heart Wreath

Here is mine now. I intend to put one of my wedding photos in the centre and mount it all on a canvas!
Cover the base with 12x12 patterned paper (it doesn't matter what it is as it will be covered). 
Go over with gesso, dabbing with kitchen roll as you go to make it 'mottled'. 
Over stamp using the crackle stamp and Brilliance ink (Crimson Copper). 
While it is drying paint the top surface of the frame using Fresco paint (Very Berry). 
I also used Tando Mini Birds, Butterflies, a mini heart and letters. 
Paint these using EcoGreen acrylic paint (Lake). 
When dry go round the blue with a light touch of the brilliance ink. 
Glue the top frame to the base and hold in place with bulldog clips till dry. 
When dry paint the edges and back with the Very Berry paint. 
Add Crackle Accents to the hearts. Glue on the minis.

Tando Minis - Butterflies, Birds and Branches, Hearts
Brilliance Ink - Crimson Copper
Self adhesive pearls 

See you tomorrow
