On Saturday I purchased a pad of Mixed Media paper from Cass Art (a UK art shop) and some soft pastels... (along with some other stuff...) so I had to have a play.
I got so engrossed I only took one photo along the way..
I sealed that with a layer of clear gesso.
I filled the stamped hearts with 3d transparent gel and sprinkled some clear glass beads (Finnabair for Prima) into the wet gel, and very patiently let it dry overnight..
The sentiment is from the new Emma Godfrey plate for Paperartsy EEG13, same as the little hearts come from.
Sorry about the photos even with a daylight bulb I can't get them very well - I'll see if I can do better at the weekend when it's properly light!
