I wanted to play with my new colours of chalky finish DecoArt paint. After a coat of gesso I painted the mdf wooden heart shape with a couple of layers of lace. Then patiently waited whilst a coat of weathered wood dried and applied a coat of romance on the top to create this fantastic crackle.
Once dried I used my finger to edge with carbon black chalky paint.
Close up of the fab crackle.
I also got some new to me stencils. I didn't realise how huge they were!!
I used black media DecoArt modelling paste through the French Script one. (Love this stuff, but you probably already know that!!)
I went back in with black to define the edges more and then when dry added a couple of coats of DecoArt media satin varnish.
And finally I added some hemp and some beads.
And the sun came out.
