Find Joy In The Ordinary

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.
My background has been created with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Pyrrole Orange which I applied by dragging the paint over the background using an old credit card, ensuring to leave some white areas and I also added touches of Cobalt Teal Hue Acrylic and I then dried with a heat tool. I used the edge of the credit card to add scratchy lines in Green Gold DecoArt Fluid Acrylic and Carbon Black.
I used a stencil to add stencilled circles around the background applying Ultramarine Blue PanPastel over the stencil. I then die cut two hearts from scrap card, placed the hearts onto the background and then applied Ultramarine Blue PanPastel over the die cut pieces.
I used the Tim Holtz Wildflower Layering Stencil, applying DecoArt Black Modeling Paste over the stencil and allowing to dry. I used Wendy Vecchi's Old Ledger Stencil to add further detail to the background applying Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel over the stencil. I also added a Remnant Rub for added interest.
I also added splatters of DecoArt Titanium White Acrylic to add a further layer of interest. From this picture you can see all the layers added to the background. I also added touches of Orange PanPastel to the hearts to add more depth of colour.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Tracy x x x

OMG Tracy! LOVE THIS!! I love the colors combos of purple, orange and green!! Love your outlines around the hearts and you know how I love paint splatters!!
When you use the credit card to scrape the paint, are you picking the paint up off of your craft sheet or do you drop the paint directly onto your surface, then scrape it through? Whatever you're doing--I love the effect!! :) :)
I'm playing catch-up this weekend and I'm just in awe at how much you create every day, every week, Tracy!! Keep up your Wonderful Art!!
XOXO-Shari
