The main technique for the second day of the Artful Academy Supply Savvy challenge was using cling film with acrylic paint to create a textured background. I’ve done this with watercolour paint before and it turned out really nicely, but for some reason it just didn’t work that well here — I must give it another go because I do like the effect when it works properly.
The painted heart was a lot more effective; a bit of a book page stuck to card and painted red, cut out and loosely outlined in black pen. I layered a word sticker onto black card and found a metal heart in my stash. Then it was just a case of arranging all the pieces together with a couple of scraps of sequin waste and gluing everything in place.
Card, acrylic paint, gesso, gel medium, cling film, book paper, metal charm, word sticker, black permanent pen, scrap of sequin waste.
