From The Heart

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 love using hearts in my artwork so decided to incorporate them once again set against a mixed media backdrop. The background was painted with DecoArt Pyrrole Orange and Green Gold Fluid Acrylics; applying the paint with an old credit card.
I die cut hearts from scrap card and then placed the hearts onto the background and then applied Magenta PanPastel around the heart.
To add definition to each of the hearts I applied Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel around the edges of each and smudged with my finger. I also applied Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel over a Wendy Vecchi stencil to add a further layer of interest and added Orange PanPastel over a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil to add yet a further layer to the design.
I added scratchy lines of paint using an old credit card and DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics along with delicate splatters for added interest. The sentiment 'From the Heart' is a Tim Holtz sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy xxx
