Dream Big HeartI am really liking working onto these hearts.  I cut them from greyboard and they are a nice large area to give plenty of options for decoration.

For this heart I have painted with gesso first and then used a mix of yellow and green acrylic paints from Eco-Green to create the background.  To add some pattern I have applied some of the colour using a brayer.

I have then stamped using the same paint using the Creative Expressions Chicken Wire stamp.

The large Stampendous Jumbo Daisy has then been stamped using Archival Black ink and I have painted it in using 3 shades of acrylic pink paint.  I have added a few white highlights with a pen too.

I’ve added some Daffodil yellow liquid Pearls to the centre of my daisy.

It is nice to work on a different type project instead of a card or canvas.

For those of you who read a couple of week’s ago about my dog Molly – well she collapsed unexpectedly a fortnight ago.  You will be pleased to know that she came home yesterday.  She suffered a spinal stroke and after initially being paralysed in her back legs, she is now back walking – albeit with a sling to support her – but it making huge improvements every day!  Such an amazing thing to watch her progress.


hope you have had a lovely Sunday

happy crafting
