Love and Hearts - Love With All Your Heart

A fab theme this week on the Tando Creative blog for Valentine's, so I went mad with the hearts but decided to give them a grungy twist...

I started by using this heart that came from the inside of one of the heart layered frames. 
The holes were added with a crop a dile and then I built up the piece using Tando mini hearts, art balls, micro beads and texture sand paste. 

Once this had all dried overnight I painted over the piece with crackle paint and then added some crackle paste to areas...

When the crackles had fully developed I added my colour in layers.
I started with watered down gold acrylic then some quinacridone gold. 
These were allowed to drip into different areas then once dry I added some brown, gamboge and scarlet brusho powders. 
To continue building up the layers of colour I added gold gilding wax and also dry brushed on some blue paint.  I kept going with this until I was happy with the outcome...

To finish off the piece I added some rusty wire around the heart as well as to the holes as a hanger.  I took one more mini heart and painted it with pyrole red acrylic, coating it with liquid glass and adding a gem.

Finally I used one of the Tim Holtz small chat stickers that fit the theme...

Here are the products that I used:

* Tando Layered Frame Heart
* Tando Grab Bag of Hearts
* Decoart Media Line Mediums
* Decoart Media Line Fluid Acrylics
* Brusho Powders
* Rusty Wire

I hope you are enjoying all the heart themed projects this week from the team, thank you for looking.

Happy crafting,

Jane xx
