In last month's like for ever kit there was a huge tub of heart confetti from Pebbles. I loved it and could see myself making shaker pockets, using them as I would sequins and enamel dots and then this idea popped in to my head...
Stringing lots of hearts together and using them as bunting, perfect. I only put the needle in my thumb twice - for me this is a vast improvement!
I gave one of the wood veneers from the kit a coat of pink acrylic paint, a coat of melon Gelato, a coat of Shimmerz Dazzlerz in spun sugar. I sanded it down a little and decided that was the best colour match I was going to get.
I poked holes in to my watercolour paper background and strung my lines of bunting. Then I watered down the melon gelato and added a generous helping of splatters.
I knew my photo needed layers but I kept them subtle and narrow, and included vellum to keep them 'soft' so the main focus besides the photo itself would be the hearts.
And I can tell you I love it and will be string more little things together soon!!
Thanks for stopping by!
