Hi there Creative Embellishments Fans! Sarah here today to share a mixed media canvas with you! I’m calling this piece Scorched Heart.

I started out with a 6×6 canvas and used a Prima stencil and some Prima Art Extravagance White Crackle Texture Paste. Once the texture paste had dried, I added the a small tart tin that I had primed with white gesso. Next, I started playing with colours to create the background – I’ve used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Mists in Queen of Hearts Red, Pretty in Pink Pink and Dark Chocolate Truffle. I also used Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Gold Rush Acrylic Paint to ad the gold-tone to the background and then inked the edges of the canvas with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. Once I was happy with the back ground I added the altered Relics & Artifacts Flaming Heart on top of the Tart Tin. I used the smallest set of wings from the Fairy Wing Set 3 to add wings to the heart feature. I started off by embossing the wings with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in Golden Angel Wings and then adding some Vintage Gold Embossing Powder to the Wing Tips. The wings ended up being too light to suit the canvas, so I misted them with the Queen of Hearts Red mist and then added some Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Rusty Red Acrylic Paint to the Wings. I painted the wing tips with the Gold Rush paint and also lightly dry-brushed the gold over the red part of the wings.

To finish off the canvas, I added pieces cut from the Mini Quatrefoil 6×6 Panel. I inked the panel pieces with the Ground Espresso Distress Ink and then glued them to the frame. Wherever the panel pieces overlapped with the gold-tone in the background, I added some Prima Art Extravagance Gold Glitter using Ranger Crackle Accents. The glitter ended up being too . . . glittery. . . for the canvas so once it had dried, I painted over the glitter sections with the Gold Rush Paint to tone it down. I ended up loving the texture this gave to the gold sections of the panel!

Here are some different angles and close-ups so you can see all the dimension and details!
