TRUE LOVE Mixed Media Canvas
(Daily ART DT
+ Mixed Media Monthly Challenge)

It is time for me to share with you
another Daily ART DT project, this time, a love-inspired project,
perfect for the month of February. I got my hands dirty with
lots of pinks and purples to create this very dreamy Valentine canvas!

I was inspired by the February Challenge #45

The canvas is 12 x 3 inches.

I added a thin coat of White Gesso to the base, followed by 
a bit of Fine Texture Paste. Then, using Silver Stencil Paste,
I added some stenciled design with the Vintage N Stencil.

I then added, very randomly until I got the desired look,
a combination of Glimmer Ink Spray (Pearl Red), Vintage Ink Sprays (Baby Pink, 
Pale Fuschia and Glossy Ink Spray (Light Violet, Bubblegum Pink, Snow White) 
mixed in with water to create a watercolor effect and my good old heat gun 
to dry it all up between layers. I then added a little stamping with black archival ink.

My Hardboard Hearts were covered with a thick coat of Crackle Paint
followed by Vintage Paint (Pastel Violet, Violet) and Velvet Paste (Amethyst).

I dabbed some Silver Stencil Paste on the complete canvas and decorations
to give it a little shimmer.  I then sprayed some liquid adhesive before
sprinkling on lots of micro-beads and sequins.

I am quite thrilled by how it all turned out
and I hope you enjoy it too.
Love and hearts are always a winning combination for any project!
