Supply Savvy ATC day 2

Yellow art card with layered sequin waste, red card heart, metal heart charm and the words "heart & soul".

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.
