It was already painted with honeycomb acrylic paint, the grungeboard heart was painted with alcohol inks and the grungeboard wings were painted with picket fence distress crackle paint. I placed it on the canvas and it was just too plain, boring, yuck. You get the picture! I then added red spray ink from Inkadinkado, vanilla acrylic paint with bubble wrap for the background. Still needed something....WORDS and SPARKLE! Once I attached everything to the canvas it all worked together perfectly.
I love quotes and words on projects. I also love the look of individual letters glued together to form words. What I do is to find a font that I like that will work well with everything and type up the alphabet (over and over) and print it on a piece of matte presentation paper. Its thick like cardstock so there is substance to each letter. When I need to make words I cut apart the letters. Its not for everyone but I love working with tiny things so it works for me.
One more thing! This is a birthday tag I made for my neice for her Sweet 16! She is so hard to make a card for but I new she liked bright colors. I was only giving her money so in the back is a money pocket.
I hope you enjoyed both projects. I'm hoping to post more soon. I'm in the process of stopping everything I'm working on and and cleaning up my art room. I can't see my table or the floor. It's a little overwelming right now so before I start anything I need a clean space. Are you the same way?
That's it for now! Thanks so much for stopping by!
