Anything Goes: Barbed Heart by Hannah

Hi all, it's "Anything Goes" week here on the Tando Blog, and I wanted to share with you a chalkyboard style background along with one of my favourite embellishments; a textured heart.

This media board has been decorated with with a selection of mini cogs, painted in black gesso and dry brushed with white gesso. 

The feature of the board is the textured heart - painted in DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics and highlighted in metallic gold.

Dry brushing the background highlights the edges of the cogs, as well as the texture of the board giving the board a faux chalk board finish. 

The textured heart is painted in tonal colours, giving the texture depth, and further highlighted in metallic gold. To finish, I have wrapped the heart in rusty wire, which I have formed to give a barbed wire look.

I hope you have enjoyed this project!
