I first added lots of layers to the blank canvas to create loads of texture. I used book pages, ribbon, beads, threads, cord, tissue... with DecoArt matte medium to stick everything down. Then painted over it with black gesso.
I used the Tando Rustic Hearts and the two hearts from the Heart Cogs Mix. I first added a thick layer of DecoArt texture sand paste to the large cog hearts and let them dry. I then painted them using DecoArt Media paints and black gesso.
I painted the rustic hearts with DecoArt crackle paint, thin in some areas then thicker in others. I then painted them with DecoArt Media paints.
I then sprayed the canvas and the rustic hearts with a couple of sprays of DecoArt white shimmer media mister.
I stacked the rustic hearts on top of each other and placed all the hearts on the canvas.
Here are the Tando products I used.
