As part as my Design Team duties for The Crafty Scrapper, I was given a blank Maya Road Canvas Heart to alter any way I desired, although I had to add a picture of myself and a few words about what Art means to me. This is what I came up with, and boy did I have a blast making it!
|I stained it all up first with Aged Mahogany, Black Soot, and Vintage Photo, with a few mists of water.|
|I stamped the dots in Tarnished Brass Metallic Distress Stain. The sentiment was stamped first in Jet Black Archival and heat embossed in Gold Tinsel and then restamped in Jet Black. Next came lots and lots of metal, material, and embellishments.|
It's a little hard to read what it says, as I think I should have let things dry a little better, but it's Wendy's sentiment which I think fits how I feel perfectly, "Let what you LOVE be what you do." I love Art! So I am also submitting this to the Everything Wendy Yahoo Group's Making Art Challenge for "4 Letter Word". Since it's a heart and it's the season for hearts I might as well submit it to The Artist Stamper Creative Team Blog Challenge for "Hearts & Flowers", Sunday Stamper for "Love & Hearts", and for the "Ribbon" to Unruly Paper Arts Reader Art Quest 1.
