I heart you.



It all begins with a little sketchy.



12" X 24" on stretched canvas



Gesso & acrylic to outline.



Prim inspired.



Sanded and distressed.



A crackle here, a crackle there.



Oil pastels for shading certain areas.



Metallic paints to highlight.



Overall, made with love... cause I heart you. :)

  8. Thanks so much creative cuties! I really enjoyed making this piece.

    Cris- Gesso does in fact give a nice texture. Depending on the thickness you apply, the gesso gives you a great surprise when it dries. Have fun using it.

    Creative Blessings,
    Lisa :)
