Live, Laugh, Love and a Tutorial 31

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, January 15, 2014 @ 3:00 AM | , , ,

Hi there and welcome to my creative space. Today it's my turn to share a project on the 13arts blog. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I was inspired to create this altered chipboard heart using a variety of awesome 13arts products!
I added lots of texture and dimension using Ayeeda Acrylic Modeling Paste along with a Brick Wall stencil:
I randomly added color using the following beautiful Ayeeda Mists: Pearl BordeauxPearl Brown and Chalk Yellow Amber. TIP: rather than spraying the mists on my project, I prefer to apply using a paintbrush which allows for more control.
Once I was happy with the colorful background, I adhered a variety of embellishments. The bigger blossom shown below was a white paper flower from my stash that I customized using Ayeeda Pearl Mist ~ Pearl Bordeaux:
I repeated the same process altering the bigger blossom shown below using Ayeeda Chalk Mist ~ Chalk Yellow Amber
Here are a few photo step shots that I took along the way sharing my creative process:

Step 1: Randomly tear strips of Ayeeda Faces of Spring Collection ~ Natural Beauty patterned paper, apply to chipboard heart. Allow to dry.
Step 2: Apply Ayeeda Acrylic Modeling Paste along with a Brick Wall stencil. Allow to dry.
Step 3: Randomly apply the following beautiful Ayeeda Mists: Pearl Bordeaux, Pearl Brown and Chalk Yellow Amber using a paintbrush:
Many thanks for visiting! I hope my tutorial helps provide you with a better understanding on how to create a project like my sample.
Be Sweet ;)

Your tutorials are very inspiring; I just added modeling paste to my wishlist; I already have some mists and gesso. But to be honest; it will be a long way for me to create something like this. But it' s about the fun of creating and that's what I see in your project. Yes it' s gorgeous but I can read in your post that you had a lot of fun creating this beauty. Sometimes it's fun to create a total mess to make something beautiful! :)
