All We Need Is Love!

Hi to the lovely people in blogland!!

Month of febuaury surely belong to those who listen to their hearts ;) just like me!!

So this month we will all see lot of creativity with love! Today, I am posting my first Mixed media canvas....I am not so sure that how much justice I have done witht he term...will be eagerly waiting for your valuable feedback!

So I started with some acrylics on canvas....

and then I did some layering till the time I got my desired shades. After that I have used lot of distress ink with a blending technique. Also I worked with a Pattern Paper and tried to give an old look by using distress inks.
Now coming on my heart ;) its handcut....I have this paper with me from quite some time and was just thinking how to use it....Though earlier I have used the same many times as a stencil...but this time I have done a cut out of heart and pasted it. I have used lot of Gesso and acrylic colors on my canvas... I wrapped up my heart with a sequence lace...same I have stored since years to use it..(got the same from a candle holder long time back)....above to it...there's a paper doily...again used distress ink with wrinkled look and blending technique on it....complimented with flowers, chipboard, lace and blings:)

On the right side....I have used micia odden stamps purchased from lulupu....I love to work with them!
I worked with Vintage boarder stickers bought from Itsy Bitsy and Handmade with Love Washi Tape (From Lulupu)...Sentiment is handwritten.

Pls leave your valuable feedback to make my work better :)
