The Key to my Heart

This is my Valentine project for 2013, using a small 5 x 7 inch canvas.


The blank canvas was covered in torn 7 Gypsies paper & given a coat of gesso.


Once dried, a wash of diluted acrylic paint was added. When this was dry, brown rub-ons by Kaisercraft (These Days) were applied.


The letters, cut from the 7 Gypsies paper, were mounted onto paper punched from papers by K&Company (Brianna).


A further coat of clear gesso was then applied over the rub-ons & lettering.

The metal key is from K&Company (Life's Journey) & tied with a piece of olive green organza ribbon.


The paper heart shape was adhered to mountboard, with the edges sanded, before the band of grosgrain ribbon was fixed into place.


The canvas was edged with lace ribbon by American Crafts (Ruban Premium in Vanilla & Chestnut).


Additional supplies worthy of note are Pinflair Bookbinding Glue, Liquitex clear gesso, & Eco Green Crafts Acrylic Paint (white).
