First I took similar paper and collaged the whole substrate.. Then using Claudine Hellmuth paints because they are transparent I painted it. I chose two colors that compliment each other. I traced the heart first over on the top right..
I then proceeded to go to town with stencils and stamps.. another layer was sponging with white paint..
Then the rub ons came out.. I love love Rub ons.. The grungier they go on the better.
After I played with the rub ons I made marks.. Just going around the canvas with a black ink pen that's great over acrylics and scribbled.. I love mark making too.
Above is my finished project..
It is going to my MIL for Mothers Day..
