Thankyou for your lovely comments on my previous post, they are very much appreciated and I love to read each one. :) If you've been to visit my shop lately you might have noticed that my artwork has taken a little turn recently towards the festive season!
The idea for these designs started with a sketch I made in my sketchbook and I discovered how much I enjoyed making the effect of brightly coloured patterns and colours in contrast to a black background. It really makes the colours pop. Here it is below..
I've been wanting to paint onto wooden shapes for ages so I took the plunge and bought some little hearts and ovals made of plain plywood.
I made up the designs as I went along, working on several at a time to let the layers dry.
Each one is different.
And here we are with the finished pieces! These are my angel hearts, my personal favourites. :) I think you can tell that I loved using the gold paint!
The backs of the wooden shapes were fun to paint too!
I used gold paint for that chrismassy look, I love how it shines when the light catches! I finished each one with a coat of varnish to protect the surfaces.
Each one has a silver thread so that they can be hung on a christmas tree or window.
Thankyou so much for visiting me here today, I wish you a very happy week! xx
