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.
Still loving my Autumnal tones this week. A brayered backdrop using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Vermillion, Yellow Green Light and Cadmium Red Hue.
I placed the Tim Holtz Eye Chart Stencil onto the backdrop and then applied Orange and Permanent Red PanPastels over the stencil and then sprayed lightly with hairspray to fix the pastels. I then placed a die cut heart onto the background and blended Magenta PanPastel around the die cut and once again fixed the pastel with hairspray.
I added rusty wire around the heart for added texture and also included delicate splatters and painted circles stamped with a lid using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Carbon Black.  To add further texture, I painted the heart with DecoArt Media Crackle Glaze and then applied a touch of Raw Umber Antiquing Cream to highlight the fine cracks.
I love adding shading with the PanPastels, so easy to apply.  I also added two hearts created with Liquid Fimo for added interest.
A stamped sentiment and tiny staples add further interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
