I love heart art any time of the year. But February is the best. This card has a full boat of mixed media and was inspired by Pinterest (as usual).
It has Color Burst, watercolors, acrylic paint, Washi tapes, stitching, embossing, rubber stamping and stenciling. Posca Pen and Zig Writer for my fake splatters.
The inside needs to be fun too. I wasn’t real thrilled with how that sentiment worked with the specialty embossing powder, so I jazzed it up with more Washi Tapes. Finally I have new uses for Washi Tapes. They collect so fast.
I made this postcard at the same time with the same techniques and supplies.
A successful experiment for me.
And then there came this postcard.
Again, many of the same techniques with the addition of texture paste and shading with a graphite pencil.
This paper art stuff is hard. It does not come naturally or easy to me. Many of these techniques are out of my comfort zone. I’m trying to be more brave these days. Some experiments are filling the trash bin. So when I have a success, I celebrate with a very happy party feeling inside me.
Happy Valentines Day!
