Welcome to Another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!


Good morning my blogging friends!  It is Wednesday and once again time to share another project I did for Heartfelt Creations!  I can't tell you how much I missed being able to play last Wednesday.  Today, I'm a happy camper since I'm back up and running.

This morning my project is a decorative piece that can be displayed on an easel or made into a wall hanging.  I chose to use the easel.  This idea is inspired by a Tim Coffee video I saw and I loved the look and so here is my take on it.  I used all Heartfelt Creations stamps and just started to play.  The idea is to stamp the images and then outline with hot glue.  This is quite difficult for me and it takes an extremely steady hand but I still love the results.  Once you get everything outlined you paint over everything, then crackle everything and do some color washes and shimmer sprays and suddenly everything begins to come together.  You can go to the Heartfelt Creations blog to see all the stamps and products I used and the full instructions are there as well.  I think it turned out with a sort of Shabby look and feel to it and I love the soft colors that came through!  While you are on the Heartfelt Creations blog spend a few minutes and see all the other beautiful cards and designs that are posted there.  You can get so many wonderful ideas.  Also you can visit each of the design team's blogs by clicking on their names on the side of my blog.  Go visit and leave them a message.

That's it for me this morning!   I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project.   Have a great day and a good rest of the week!

Wow! I really love this technique - I'm in the middle of redecorating at home, and I may just have to create one of these for a wall-hanging. Your creation is lovely!!

I really love this. So unique. Took a peep about the last three posts also. Your cards are so pretty.Like the embossing folders you are using. I am trying to limit my morning computer time..as I have a lot of things I need to be working on. Life..and all the ideas, I get from Pinterest. Plus trying to go outside with these 50/60 temps..unheard of in Iowa..
Always fun to try new things and your colors on this project are great. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

Hi Glenda,

This looks great. I'll have to try this technique.

Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of my workdesk so I'm not linking up today - but still wanted to take a peek!

Hugs,

This is so unique and very cool. It looks more than crackle paint. It has so much texture-I don't think anyone would think it wasn't like stucco. Thanks for sharing how you did this. I would love to give it a whirl. It's sensational.
