As we go on in the magical month of December, I decided to create a cardboard piece called “my winter heart”. I was again just playing around, letting my mojo lead me, using whatever came into my hand and here is the result:
First I applied some texture paste on my cardboard.
Not a lot to see, but hopefully you can still catch a bit, I thought it looks like snow balls on my background. Then I took my soft gel and came my first layer:
It looked so natural, some burlap, some jute rope, some pieces of wood and wooden beads, and some metal cord. But of course it can never be enough for me. So I had to add another layer.
I still tried to stay somewhat natural, so there came a piece of canvas fringe, some wooden buttons, some snowballs from my snowballs ribbon. My heart is also natural, wooden of course was waxed and there is a layer of black sand texture paste underneath. I also added some metal parts. Then it got a cover with gesso. And finally came the colours, Tattered Angels Glimmer mists and Glimmer Glaze. And here are some details:
My winter heart
is a mixture of cold blue like ice and warm yellow like the light that shines through the dark nights, my beating heart is cold, but still warmed up by the magic of the time, in every joy there is a bit of a sadness, even at the brightest moment there is a bit of a darkness.
