Wired Heart

This is my second piece for the current Country View Crafts Challenge where 'Anything Goes'. I thought I would share a little hanging I made when I attended Any Skinner's class at CHSI in Birmingham last month. The reason for choosing to share this here is that Susan will soon be getting DecoArt products in the shop, so those of you who already use this line of crafting paints and mediums might want to keep an eye open for them, I know I will be.


I am not sharing Andy's techniques because he does that brilliantly on a video made at CHA in January where he demonstrated this at the Stamependous booth. You can find the video HERE.



The base is made of chipboard and the rest of it, including the heart, is made from foamboard, so you can imagine this is so light to handle. The paints are from the new DecoArt media line and Andy's new stamps are produced by Stampendous

So watch this space as they say as there will be more mixed media work coming from me with these fabulous products and I will share some exciting news I've had here on Saturday.

I hope we will see you at the CVCC blog where there is a £20 voucher from Country View Crafts up for grabs for a lucky winner, please also pop over to see all the amazing inspiration coming out from the fabulous design team.

See you tomorrow with another double page of my Visual Journey diary for 2015.
