Artist Muse by Lynne Moncrieff


It’s a wee while since I last shared a project using one of That’s Crafty! MDF hearts as a substrate.

It’s so clever of That’s Crafty! to not only have a variety of sizes available but also a choice of MDF or white/greyboard.


Infusions:- Black Knight, Violet Storms, Royal Blood, Blackcurrant, The Sage
Clear Texture Paste (I used Ranger – That’s Crafty! stock different brands)
(The paperclay bunting was extra I made when stamping the bunting for an earlier project – it is a timesaver to try and make extras of any paperclay elements)


Apply Gesso followed by the Infusions, to the heart, generously misting with water. I prefer to leave to dry naturally when possible. 

With a palette knife, apply clear embossing paste to the stencil, only on the upper most corner. Leave to dry for a few moments then apply, with care, Infusions. Apply heat to create texture.

Stamp Finnabair stamp onto tissuestock. Tear around image before adhering to heart.  Stamp art heart element only into paperclay. At the same time, stamp the LPC bunting into paperclay. Cut away excess paperclay. Leave to dry. 

Once dry, lightly paint with Infusions. Also apply the Infusions to a piece of scrap cardstock. Ink up “art” only from the same stamp, stamping onto the prepared cardstock. Adhere to heart. Adhere the bunting to heart with silicone glue and the heart to main image with Gel Medium.

Finally, in a loose manner, write some journaling.

Until next time,

  6. Lynne, my first impression when I looked at the heart was "Medieval" and then I looked at the Infusions you used: Black Knight, Violet Storms, Blackcurrant, Sage, and Royal Blood. don't the names just fit?! The bunting really lends itself to that medieval castle look, too. Such a stunning image of the lady and I love the ART on the heart. Another lovely piece, Lynne. Thanks for sharing. inkybru xx
