Follow Your Heart

I followed my heart today and created something inspired by the hot weather we are experiencing at the moment. I was inspired to create with some hot warm colours today.
I reached for my Tim Holtz Distress Paints to create the background using Ripe Persimmon and Squeezed Lemonade Paints blending each with my finger. I added some shading around the circles with my Distress Crayons.
I added some texture applying Crackle Paste through the Linen Layering Stencil and then added touches of Distress Crayon to the texture.
Design Tape has been added to the background to add a further layer of interest.
A Paper Doll stands perfectly against the Idea-ology gear and rusty heart. I love the combination of the rust and the hot colours.
A few rusty stars and Chitchat sticker complete the design.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
