I had to tape 2 pieces of paper together in order to trace out and cut a heart big enough for the design I wanted.
I then sketched an outline an inch away from the heart edge,
Loosely taped the heart down, gesso'd the edges and then splattered it with orange and yellow water colour paint.
I didn't have any orange thread and I wanted it to have a warm ombre effect so I used my water colours to dye the thread.
I really like how Cindy went outside the lines when she was stitching so I copied that as well :) I LOVE how this layout came together. Definitely a favourite!
