*Cre8'n With ColourArte*

Hello everyone!  Here's a mixed-media wall decoration I created for my Design Team Submission for ColourArte!!  I love using ColourArte products for the beautiful, vibrant colors they have...for this Creation I used Silks Acrylics, and Twinkling H20's!  Here's some photos of the supplies I mainly used for this project:

I was planning on creating a whole video but of course my battery died on my recorder near the end (embellishment part).  So I just took photos of the other steps...Here's the whole process with my painting process in this video here:

First I Mod Podged the Tim Holtz Tissue BG paper to the Chipboard Scalloped edge shape (Prima), then painted the background with Silks Acrylics and after adding dimension with modeling paste and Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil I painted over those parts with the Twinkeling H20's (my favorites!!)

Painted with Silks Acrylics and Shimmering H20's
 Then I drew in and painted the heart with gel medium and titanium white acrylic paint for a translucent look.  Painted the wood words "Always in my heart" with the Twinkling H20's and glued on top and added some shimmer Mod Podge on top.  Added a layer of white washing the edges and some stamping for more texture.

 Added another layer of white dry brushing after I sealed the whole piece with Mod Podge.

Then embellished with Prima Flowers and sparkle dots.
Here's the final look:

I had a wonderful time creating this bright and lively mixed-media wall sign with the vibrant ColourArt Products!  I really hope to make it on the Design Team because I can't wait to see what else I'll be creating using such wonderful products!!  To learn more of ColourArte Products you can find them here:  and to see other fun projects check out the blog here:
