Love ….. Hearts! by Lynne Moncrieff


In recent weeks I’ve shared a few posts featuring That’s Crafty! Surfaces MDF hearts and this week, one makes an appearance again. They have become indispensable for me. For this week I’ve teamed the MDF heart up with other hearts and also one of the heart Dinky Stencils for this distressed/grungy but ultimately, romantic collage.






Supplies


Distress Stain Spray:- Picket Fence, Hickory Smoke
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish:- French Roast, Claret, London Fog, Vintage Lace, Blush, Sherbert
Old Rolling Pin or Clay Tools
Extras:- Lace, heart MOP button, vintage image (I used a Darkroom Door photobooth but you could substitute with Idea-ology photo booths or your own vintage photo) wooden frame and large wooden heart


Instructions


Large Wooden Heart:- Apply hearts Dinky Stencil to large wooden heart with Grunge Paste. Once dry, randomly swipe Grunge Paste onto the heart. Again, leaving to dry before applying Blush, Vintage Lace and Sherbert. Once dry apply Claret and French Roast, focusing on the edges. Mist generously with water allowing to drip down the heart.  Mist with Hickory Smoke. Ink edges then lay aside.






Paperclay Heart:- Roll to required thickness. Stamp heart (Carabelle Studio) into the paperclay. Roll a smaller piece of paperclay, this time stamping one of the script elements from PaperArtsy LPC030. Immediately wash stamps afterwards. Leave the paperclay elements to dry.

Once dry, paint with Claret and a touch of French Roast.  Mist with Picket Fence and ink edges.





MDF Heart:- Apply Gesso followed with Claret, London Fog and French Roast. Mist with Hickory Smoke and Picket Fence. Once dry stamp Messy Writing and ink edges.
 





Wooden Frame:- Paint the frame followed by stamping the Messy Writing. Apply Liquid Glass. Once dry, adhere frame to photobooth image.

Assembling & Final Touches:- Cluster the hearts and frame, adhering to the large wooden heart with Gel Medium. Add a scrap of lace and MOP button to the MDF heart. Finally, apply Vintage Lace and Claret to a scrap of cardstock. Once dry stamp sentiment, inking edges. Gently curve before adhering to the collage.






I decided not to paint the rope handle but at the same time, I allowed it to get messy with the paints and sprays, adding to the distressed/grungy appearance of the collage.

Until next time,

Lynne
