This post will show you how to create a mixed media with a heart theme.
This is a fun project you can do with a few simple materials.
- 4″ by 6″ canvas
- Acrylic paints
- Wood heart
- Plaster cloth
- Tim Holtz Distress Ink
- Pressed leaves
- Tag made from scrapbook paper
- Embroidered Yo Yo
First, cut a heart out of plaster cloth, dip it into water, and then smooth the cloth onto a wooden heart:
After the heart dries, create a wash with your favorite paint colors by adding water to them. Brush the wash over the heart.
Draw around the heart, and then sponge around the heart’s shape with gesso.
Glue the heart to the canvas using E 6000 glue.
Wash diluted yellow ochre paint on the canvas to create an aged look. Stamp the heart, and then add embellishments: a decorated tag, brown ribbon, inked edges, another wood heart, an embroidered yo yo, tinted cloth rose, and pressed leaves.
