Captured Memories

It's been such a dull and gloomy day that I wanted to get my bright and vibrant Dylusions out and have a play. I introduced a few stencils using DecoArt black and white gesso and the bump technique.

Next I switched to the DecoArt chalky paint and added more black and white through stencils. I also added the words to the heart in DecoArt black modeling paste for a raised texture.

Once the modeling paste was dry the heart needed some further attention. Black smudgy pencil but it wasn't dark and bold enough, so out came the portfolio pastels and the Clarity 'inspire' stamp and I thought it was finished.

Still the heart didn't feel finished, so I added some white dots between the two heart shapes and some black scribbley lines in the gap under the word memories and also some more stamping with a hash type stamps to fill in some gaps along with a couple of the Finn stamps. Now I think it's finished.

It's been a real mixture of sunshine and grey cloud, blustery and calm here today but strangely with comfortably warm temps but your page definitely brightens up the dull bits. It's really great and love all The black and white stencilling.

Fabulous colours - especially the fiery glow around the heart reaching out into the pinks - and the b&w stencilling is very cool.
