Trio of Hearts @ Tando

Hi folks, I've called this creation for this weeks 'anything goes' at Tando, 'Trio of Hearts'.

I started with a square canvas and added lots of layers to the blank canvas to create loads of texture. I used book pages, ribbon, beads, threads, cord, tissue... with DecoArt matte medium to stick everything down. Then painted over it with black gesso.

I used the Tando Rustic Hearts and the two hearts from the Heart Cogs Mix. I first added a thick layer of DecoArt texture sand paste to the large cog hearts and let them dry. I then painted them using DecoArt Media paints and black gesso.

I painted the rustic hearts with DecoArt crackle paint, thin in some areas then thicker in others. I then painted them with DecoArt Media paints.

I then sprayed the canvas and the rustic hearts with a couple of sprays of DecoArt white shimmer media mister. 

I stacked the rustic hearts on top of each other and placed all the hearts on the canvas. 

Here are the Tando products I used...available on the Tando Website.
