HeArty Canvas Using Pebeo Fantasy Paints

This is a canvas which I made with one of Leonie's new frameless stencils (Arty Hearts).  I built up texture using modelling creme and also played with some of the Pebeo Fantasy paints over the mixed media board hearts.
I started by lightly brayering layers of Pebeo DecoCreme paints across a 6" x 6" canvas board (Claritystamp).  I started with Matt Iris, then Matt Violine and finally Matt Indian Pink, ensuring each layer was dry before adding the next.

Next, I laid the Arty Hearts stencil over the canvas and pounced Matt Purple DecoCreme paint through it using blending foam.
Once dry, I replaced the stencil and dragged Viva Decor Mother of Pearl modelling Cream through the bottom left corner.
I chose three of Leonie's mixed media board hearts (also Claritystamp) and gave them a coat of Pebeo iridescent silver studio acrylic paint.
I then had fun adding Pebeo Moon Fantasy paint in Rosewood and Pebeo Prisme Fantasy paint in Pearl Violine to the surface of each heart.  I used a cocktail stick to move the paint around until the whole surface of each heart was covered, then simply sat back and let the paints react with each other.  They were left to dry overnight.
In the meantime, I edged one of the Tim Holtz Quote Chips with a silver Posca pen and added it to the canvas.
Once dry, the hearts provided a finishing touch.
