Art Project Week 6

I am late sharing this weeks art project
I didn't get started on it until Saturday because I had such a busy week
February brought a new theme
"Layers You Will Love"
Art Challenge: When not to stop
Journal Prompt: "Don't stop til you get enough" (ooh)

First layer is crumpled tissue paper I put down with Mod Podge.  After it dried I used Gesso on the page to give it texture.
I used a bright red acrylic paint to swoosh some hearts on the page.  I then added those I love to the hearts with a soft black pencil.
I added another layer of color using 'true blue'
I painted it on then using a paper towel took a lot of it off
I have a lot of heart/valentine stamps and I randomly used then on the pages as another layer
I have a lot of cancelled stamps and envelopes and used a heart punch to make some hearts. I added them to the page for yet another layer.
My last layer was Gesso with pale pink acrylic paint brushed on and paper toweled off.
I added 'Layers of Love' with my new alphabet stamps
 and called it done.
I'm not use to having so many layers so it was a good exercise for me.  I can't say I love this page but I'm satisfied that I did the challenge.

Thanks for joining me~

Lots of fun layers Linda! It's always fun to try something new!

I admire how you just dive into new projects and experiment with different mediums. We were just discussing at school today how we tend to lose that imagination and creativity after we get out of elementary school (actually preschool!). So sad. I'm glad that you haven't lost that passion! :-)
