Back again today to show you one more layout I created for Scraps Of Elegance, using the October Kit Rue des Rosiers
SO after a million takes, you can see the amusement on my face as I TRY to just get a decent shot. This is the best we can do folks..
Ok here are some close ups. I had A LOT of fun playing with this! I tried different things with some masks that came in the sister club Scraps Of Darkness..
I applied gesso and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Coral to the background. Then I went in with the new Heidi Swapp Heart Cluster stencil and PaperArtsy Grunge Paste and created the hearts you can see above.
I used my heat gun directly onto the grunge paste to make it 'puffy" which gave it an extra depth.
Once all that was dry, I sprayed some Color Shine in Coral on my mat and with a brush I coloured in the hearts. I then used a Uni Posca White Marker to go around the hearts to make them pop a bit more
The kit included a length of chesecloth, which I sprayed again with the Heidi Swapp Coral Color Shine, and heated with my heat gun to stiffen it. This is the texture you can see behind the photo. Once it was dry, I added some thick gesso on it and before it dried up I "stamped" my hearts with it which gave them this AMAZING texture and design you can see in the close up above.
Added some stamping..and more Grunge Paste.
In some areas, I used the stencil and some Color Shine to draw some opaque hearts for more detail.
Some more stamping, journalling and the title.
