CAS Heart


I painted an mdf heart with elephant fresco paint.


I don't have any colouring pencils as such but I do have these, a black and a white smudgy pencil.


I stamped the above images in black archival and taking Jo's technique from her day 2 Paperarsty project, set to work with the white pencil.


Then I added some black and smudged it.


I then added more white over some of the black to create the grey and again gave it a smudge.


And I couldn't resist colouring in the cheeks!!!


I added some white pencil dashes all around the outside and coloured a piece of ribbon with iced spruce and black soot distress ink.
