I haven't been posting for a very long time, I hope I'm back on a regular bases now. I missed last years Quietfire Design Queen of Hearts challenge, but I had some fun playing this year. I have a couple of projects and was working on a needle felted wristband with a heart, not quite done with that so I'll have to show that in a future post.

I spread gesso on a 5.5in X 7.5in piece of canvas fabric. While the gesso was still wet I rubbed on red iron oxide craft acrylic paint and pressed a texured paper towel in and lifted it off. I drew several concentrec heart shapes in the wet gesso with the end of a paintbrush. Once dry I added more iron oxide, turquoise and cinnamon brown paint.The abouve right photo is the finished canvas, with a needle felted heart added and glued into my recycled journal.

This is the finished canvas with a needle felted heart and a pendant charm. I plan to make a background on an artist canvas and mount this piece.
