I wanted to create something that was crazy messy yet beautiful and inspiring.
I tore assorted papers and glued them in place.
Aquamarine Sorbet, Blue Raspberry, Blue Robins.
I tore and layered more papers until the entire 12x12 chipboard was covered.
Purple Flowers, Purple Ants, Black on White Damask.
I drew a large heart onto white card stock, cut out and used this to trace in the center of my piece.
Then I roughly added some shades of blue acrylic paint.
I added some red sequins, Red Diamond Dew Drops and red glitters. I cut and placed a heart shaped Gold mesh on top, adding some diamond glaze to the hearts edges so the mesh would stay in place.
I placed the heart cut-out on top of the mesh before flicking some black ink spatters onto the painting.
Metallic Gold Dew Drops accented the tiara.
I wanted to add bits of the color RED all around to tie in with the paintings focal. So I added rhinestones and painted flowers. A pretty Birdcage die cut, a red butterfly with a Obsidian Diamond for it's body. Dyed pom-pom trim at the bottom of the painting, a Glitter Mardi Gras mask
with red rhinestones and a red satin ribbon.
I crushed up strips of decorative tissue paper and applied with diamond glaze at the borders. I touched up the edges with Inka Gold.
First with white paint, then with a black pen, I wrote, "Listen to Your Art".
lastly I added doodles and swirls all over the painting.
Thanks for coming by, I hope you have enjoyed my painting.
