Cartography LOVE canvas

Today we are entering the moth of love. February is also the Heart Disease awareness month in many countries around the world. Since I work as a nurse specialising in Heart Intensive Care  I wanted to celebrate February by making a canvas with a heart as the focus.

I have used a chunky canvas that I first painted with white GeeSso Good gesso and then covered with strips of a paper from the Cartography A6 Mixed Media Paper Pad.

I cut out a heart by hand from a piece of white card stock, painted it with Postbox Red paint and then before the paint was dry I applied Black GeeSso Good gesso - the end result was a brown-red almost rust like finish.

The pattern was made by using Mega Flakes (Eaton Mess) and the new texture stamp from the Teeny Background stamp set. The alphas were also painted with Copper Metallic paint and then when dry I just dabbed on some Flitter Glu on and applied Mega Flakes. Love how they turned out!

I dabbed FlitterGlu and added flakes on the edges of the canvas as well.

Hope I could inspire you today!
