Take Flight!

Hey crafty people!  Welcome back to another Dreamweaver Thursday post!  This is the last week to share February Flutters!  Today I have a canvas that I created using Dreamweaver Stencil LJ 896 Large Flourish.   I've often looked at this stencil and thought it would make beautiful wings, so, I decided to make that happen!  Dreamweaver Stencils are perfect for creating mixed media projects!

To begin, I airbrushed the background with Copic markers and then spritzed a little blender solution here and there to add some background texture.  I paste embossed the flourishes with white paste and set it aside to dry.  Once the paste dried, I rubbed on DecoArt's Metallic Lustre in Silver Spark to give it a subtle sparkle.  Next I added the heart by building up paste I applied with a palette knife, I added more until I was happy with the results.  Once that paste dried, I painted it with DecoArt paints in Naphthol Red and Country Red.  When the paint dried I used a Faber-Castell Pitt Pen to write my sentiment, easy peasy!  So that's it, for today, I hope you like my project, it makes my heart flutter!  I actually gave this canvas to Lynell, our fearless leader, and hopefully it made her heart flutter, too!  Some of my teammates have projects for you to view, too, here's the list:

Be sure to leave them some love as you go along, it lets us know you're enjoying what we've created to share with you.  We would love for you to play along with us but time is almost up so you need to hurry.  I'll see you again, soon!  Thanks for stopping by!


P.S.  Dreamweaver has a new Design Team call, the details are located here if you're interested:
