Make something from the heart, something you love with no restrictions or limitations. Yesterday I made some altered playing cards and I loved the colours on the yellow/red one so I decided to make something for me. Something arty that I could use and look at every day.
I started with this packaging material I have had for a while
I painted it white. A bit of kraft showing through is good.
I painted it yellow. A bit of white and kraft showing through is OK
I watered down some red paint in this old tin can and splatted. That definitely looks like someone's been murdered!!! I spread the remaining paint over the inside and outside of the can, which is actually part of the project........
Whilst waiting for paint to dry I stamped Kaiserkraft Grafitti stamp all over a piece of white card. Then I stamped it off, giving various shades of grey.
I fussy cut some hearts
I edged them all with archival black and drew a line around the one with a sharpie. Wasn't sure I liked this so I left the others with just the inked edges.
I wanted some black and white tape, but my black paper tape is very narrow, so.... I took some blue painters tape, painted it black and then stamped Kaisercraft Arty in white paint. I smudged the stamp at one point and you can see the blue peeking through. Kinda like that.
I wrapped my can with the blood splattered yellow waffle stuff and wrapped the tape top and bottom.
I added a few bits of left over tape and then some hearts
I love my new tin for pens and things. I looks a bit like a basket and the waffle stuff is quite spongy so it has a nice feel as well. Much improvement over that old tin. Hugz
