The current challenge on PaperArtsy is Hearts. I had some gold tissue left from Christmas so I used it to cover an 8 x 8 box canvas to give a really rich gold. I wanted to make a heart shape purely out of buttons, painted with Fresco paints. I used pink and purple shades and some blends, Bougainvillea, Pansy, Lavender, Purple Rain, Rose, and Orchid. I also used a wash of colour on some book page and stamped the tiny 'flowers' from Sara Naumann Eclectica 17 to pop in the centre of a few of the buttons for some variation. I love this set!
I am entering the challenge which is here. Do pop over and see the current new product releases and gorgeous samples which are being shown all week on the blog!
