Do what you love, love what you do

Morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We have another fabulous challenge for you over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog where the theme is Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.
I began by applying DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Pyrrole Orange to the background, applying using an old credit card and then drying with a heat tool. I then added touches of DecoArt Media Acrylic Green Gold, again with a credit card, not covering the area entirely, leaving some white spaces.
I then drew two scribbly circles with pencil and then went over the pencil lines with a Black Neocolour and then smudged the black with a wet paintbrush.
I used a white gel pen to echo the circular lines and to add highlights. I then placed a heart die cut onto the background and used PanPastel Magenta over the top of the hearts and then removed the heart die cut and repeated this process around the background. I also used a Tim Holtz Layering stencil to add the small circles, applying PanPastel White Coarse Pearl Medium over the stencil. To add a further layer of interest I also applied Black PanPastel Coarse  Pearl Medium over a Wendy Vecchi stencil. To add further depth to the colour I applied PanPastel Orange to the edges of the background.
I added a ChitChat sticker along with stamped sentiments to the circles, stamped with Black Archival Ink.
I also added further interest with scratchy lines applied with a credit card and DecoArt Media Acrylic Paints. To complete I added delicate splatters of DecoArt Media Titanium White Acrylic Paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
