Happy New Year to all you lovely people out there make it a good one.

I was inspired to do another Paper Artsy project using grunge paste coloured with fresco acylic paint. I also chose to challenge myself as colours I usually go for are all tones of purple, lilac etc I just love these colours and feel a real connection to them. So... I chose  Zesty zing and pumpkin soup both of which are a translusent and the other two colours were nougat and very berry and are opaque.

I applied them to 3 6x6 canvas quartering them and putting on all four colours I added patterns as I went randomly. I let them dry over night. To be honest I wasn't keen on the colours as a piece of art although the colours themselves are nice.

All day today I kept looking at them but was not inspired to complete them until ... Sorting through some bits I found some hearts. Maybe I could add these and see what happened. I added some treasure gold to the canvass ( inspired by Hazel see her blog here

I then got out all my bits and bobs and decided which I would use. I painted all three hearts with with French roast, crackle glazed and then once dry painted over with vintage lace( couldn't resist).  Loved the crackles amazing product. Once it was dry I tinted the edges with vintage photo distress ink.

I decorated the heart and then stuck them to canvass. My hubby even liked them and wants to hang them in the guest bedroom.

Thank you to all the people who have joined my blog and supported me on twitter you have all inspired me to make art, to overcome my 'not good enough' and let go of trying to get a piece perfect. Have a fabulous New Year.

Hugs to all Deborah xxx
