It's been almost a year since I taught a class using the beautiful Heartstrings paper. The class was loads of fun but it was also at the start of my mix media craz. Not really knowing what I was doing, a decided to have the class spray ink all over their paper using heart cut outs as a mask. It was cute but very busy and not cohesive.
After taking it apart I made the realization that the background needed to change. So I created a heart background pattern using the cameo, the hearts had to be small to add more visual interest. By mixing gesso and glacier reinker, I was able to hand paint all the backgrounds. Yes, I did just say "hand-paint". Not sure what came over me to make kits with hand painting in them but its done now.
There are 7 of these beauties just waiting for a good home. Let me know if you are interested. As always, my kits are pre-cut and come with full color instructions.
