Heart Blooms by Fliss Goodwin


Hello everyone, I have something rather eye poppingly bright to share this week as the sunny weather is finally here and I felt like celebrating with this piece of artwork which was actually the first thing I created with my stamp designs. It's also my homage to the Pantone colour of the year which is ultraviolet, something I'm really pleased about as I love purple!

Step by Step 

I used an 8 x 8 white/greyboard panel as my substrate and painted it with magenta multi surface paint. I then took the lines stencil and added a pattern with violet multi surface paint. I decided to add another layer and stencilled on top with white multi surface paint using the flourish stencil.

I stamped my chosen flower and leaf several times on plainer Gelli printed papers from my stash made with diluted multi surface paints in various shades. The flower centres were made by stamping on tiny scraps of paper which I always save for this purpose. I cut all the images out to layer up as I wanted pretty colourful flowers. I added detail to one of the layers with a coloured marker pen.

At this point, I started assembling the panel and felt it needed some texture so I took one of the MDF heart shapes and used the flourish stencil with texture paste to add a pattern. I then painted it with bright green multi surface paint with a little white mixed in so that it would tone with my leaves.

I painted one of the white/greyboard plaques from the matches sets with the same paint colour and then stamped on one of Lynne's Affirmations which I thought fit my artwork perfectly.

I assembled all the elements with dimensional glue and used this to add them to the background.
