Well decide to share a piece I did a few weeks ago for a friend. I called it you are loved. I used a 12x12 MDF board and laid down a layer of book paper with matte media and after dried added a light coat of gesso to the area that would show. I then used a sheet of corrugated card board which I tore out and area then peeled a portion of the top layer back to create a metal look. I applied paper with text and antiqued it. I then used cardstock to create hearts and covered them with text and applied a diluted coat of paint. I attached the hearts and Tim Holtz paper embellishments. I transferred my hand written phrase and painted them in. Using charcoal pastel I shadowed areas, used a paint pen, stamps and flicked paint to finish off. I forgot to take a picture before giving so I asked the reciever to snap a picture and send it to me. I loved this piece.
