heart to hearts (by Veronica)

I was looking for something different to do with the artist trading hearts from Chocolate Baroque, and this is what I eventually came up with.   I made a hanging using two of the whiteboard hearts
along with a larger mdf heart that was an impulse buy at a local show held together by a folded strip of silver ribbon.

I have to admit to using brusho powders again, which made this quite a quick project to do if you didn't count the drying time....
The colours look rather different in the photograph of the finished hanging to those in the scans of the individual hearts, though the small hearts did end up noticeably bluer.

The larger heart was painted with gesso first and some stencilling with structure paste to give some texture, but the whiteboard ones were used just as they came. They were all sprinkled with a mix of black and grey brusho powders, sprayed with spray starch and covered with crumpled cling film then left to dry.
While they were drying I coloured a couple of sheets of white card similarly, but just using grey  this time.
 The magnolia flowers were stamped using black versafine ink onto the card and clear embossed, then fussy cut out and glued onto the hearts


  1. Love the magnolia flowers stamp and you used it so well! Fabulous hanging!

  2. What fabulous hanging hearts Veronica and the magnolia flowers are so pretty over them. x
