I hope you feel the heat, because I'm not feeling it. Unfortunately, I spent the day shopping for groceries for my Super Bowl Sunday get together with friends. While at the grocery store, several people were coughing and didn't cover their mouths. When I got home, as I was putting groceries away, I started feeling bad. As the evening drew near, I started to feel even worse. So, if this piece seems a bit funky, I apologize.
I began by cutting a heart out and laying it on a used file folder. Then I spritzed the file folder with one of my handmade shimmering mists. It is dark like cranberry, but I have mixed several mica powders together, so it's hard to tell what color it really is.
I even burned the bottom of the "Red Hot" sentiment and used pop dots to raise it slightly.
I painted the heart and sentiment with red fluid acrylic and allowed the paint to dry before I adhered them.
I used a black Sharpie to create the words and surround the heart. Ironically, the mist was still a bit wet when I used it around the heart. The Sharpie picked up the red of the spray mist, which was a really happy accident.
Thanks for joining me as I join Linda at Art Journal Journey. I hope to feel better tomorrow and visit everyone before I have to put on my hostess cap before the big football game on Sunday.
