My beating heart

Sharing a project I made at a class with the lovey Monika Maksym a week last Saturday. I so enjoy taking workshops with other tutors, especially when I learn something new which I did with Monika but also as it keeps my feet grounded in what it's like on the other side of the fence.

The shabby crackled doors open to reveal an amazing heart which was made from a mould ......

... layered onto a heart shaped board with a crown.

We used chalky finish paints as well as media fluid acrylics from DecoArt and three different types of crackle medium.

My heart was painted with prussian blue and raw umber before dry brushing a light chalk paint, some silver and then flooding it with a wash of quinacridone gold.

I won't give any other secrets away as those are for Monika to share but .......

 ... this looks amazing on a shelf in my workroom.

Such a lovely way to spend a day with like minded people and enjoying the processes of making art.

Thanks Monika for a fabulous day and .....
