art works on day 7...

today we start with embellish your art/Blossom Bucket goodies...

one of the embellishments I am always looking for is hearts...

I took the opportunity to make some...

like everything else...

very dimensional on the front...
nice & flat on the back...

I started with beautiful red hearts...

use them as is, it's a good red...

I've also added vermillion archival ink over it, to change them up a bit...

and red pepper alcohol ink over them on another project...

want to add text or a pattern?

simply press them onto a stamp that has been inked with archival ink...
dry...
done...
10 seconds...
simple to alter...

want them a bit more worn?
LIGHTLY sand the high spots & add a bit of coffee archival to the sanded areas...
they're perfect!

but I LOVE polka dots too...
so here they are again...

it's simple to add words between the dots...
or change the color...


now suppose you want a black heart...
or a blue or green...
or a gold...

with these natural color hearts...

it's simple to change them to any color you choose...
stamp on it or not...


LOTS of possibilities to "embellish your art" with these Blossom Bucket cuties...

next up is another new stamp set...

this one is...

art works...


I LOVE LOVE LOVE the flowers...

and they are art parts too...

use them individually or layer them...
like this...

there would have been a Blossom Bucket center on this...
BUT this sample was made before they arrived...
poop...

it you look closely...

you just might see another art parts peek...
spot it?




only where the heart is, can the treasure be found...
just a sweet little saying that I like...
it also fits with the hearts above...

it's not the size of the wings, it's believing you can...
wings remain popular in the mixed media world, so this fits everywhere...
plus...
it's inspirational...

when the head, heart & hands all work together...
it is then that you can make art...

YOU make art...
YOU know this is seriously TRUE!

it takes all 3...
if one part is missing...
it's not a good arting day...

plus I got to squeeze in another...
make art!

this giant background stamp is from a cool
vintage ledger that we found @ an antique mall...

it's great for backgrounds...
duh...
or use just a portion of it on smaller arts...

so that's day 7...

hearts & art works...

thanks so much for popping in...

it's time to head back to the studio to...

make art!

ps...talk to me!

Wendy- the hearts are beautiful- I really like the large ledger stamp, i think that would be perfect for ATC's or card backgrounds, I can envision lots of places to use that. I cant wait to see what is next.
