A while ago a friend of mine gave me a roll of heavy cotton, that looks like a lot like linen, so I used it to make a hanging heart, using stamps, paper and the brilliant shades of the Cottage paints: Spring is in the air..... Follow me in this step by step, it is super easy to make!
Trace and cut out the heart shape from the fabric
Paint just the in the middle with gesso
Paint some strips using the Cottage paints, blending them together. Give a second coat until you are happy with the result, let it dry
Put a small amount of acrylic paint on the desktop and using a brayer roll the paint on the background stamps. Stamp randomly.
Cut out some elements from the paper pad and glue them to the heart, along with the stamped sentiment.
Glue the heart to a piece of heavy cardstock and cut it out.
