Heart, Resist, Time


Frances has been using the resist technique in the 3rd PA project here.  I decided to combine all 3 projects in this piece.  The first using a heart shape, the second using the time theme and the third using the resist technique.

I painted an mdf heart shape in nougat fresco, stamped the image from Ink and Dog backgrounds #2 plate with versamark ink and covered in clear embossing powder.


Close up of the heated embossing powder.


I used PA crackle glaze on the bottom half of the heart and painted the top coat in French roast fresco.


I ironed off the embossing powder and then sanded the whole piece back.


I stamped the background scripts and words from my brand new Sara Naumann #3 plate in picket fence distress paint.  I took a couple of Maya Road clock faces and a distressed flower from the strip I cut for yesterdays piece.  Stamped the quote onto kraft card in timber brown stazon, cut out each word and framed them using a white pencil.

Oops, still working backwards and missed this one. Now this I really love! Fab colours and the resist technique works brilliantly alongside the lovely crackle. Watch it with the flower, young lady!

Nice Sam, the resist BG worked a treat....funnily enough, a part of next week's vid is very similar to this BG, (but GP instead of embossing) resulted in similar effect...you'll see....

Oh, yum - love that sanded, textured background, so cool, and the embossed texture stamping too.
