5 for 5 Blog Event: Valentine's | Day 5

Welcome to day 5 of our 5 for 5 Blog Event. For the past 5 days our 5 designers have created Valentine's Inspired Projects based on a theme. I have enjoyed this week so much and we hope you have as well! I'm already looking forward to the next Holiday Blog Event! Have you been inspired to create any Valentine's projects - if so leave me a comment with a link to your project - I'd LOVE to see what you have created! Todays theme is "Collage" and for my final project I started with a 4 x 4 canvas. I added some cheesecloth, punchenella, microbeads, modeling paste and a LOVE chipboard piece that I used as a focal point. I collaged all these elements onto my canvas and covered the whole canvas with gesso. I then added various colors of spray inks in Valentine's colors. I lost the focal point a bit so I applied UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and heated it. This created a waxy finish and the focal point finally popped ...
 


Here's another view - you can see the waxy shine on the love chipboard...


and here's a close-up of the beads ...


I added some black splatters to give the piece some pop!
Some of us are offering prizes during this blog event. Here's a peek at my Valentine's giveaway. To qualify for this fun prize, please be sure to comment on each of my 5 for 5 posts on my blog. I will randomly chose a winner and announce on Monday February 2, 2015!


Please be sure to visit the designers blog and leave them some love too! Thanks so much for all your lovely comments during this event. We hope you enjoyed this and we will return soon for another Holiday 5 for 5 blog Event!!
