According to Vince

Being that it's Valentine's Weekend I thought I'd share this one today :)  I was originally going to do a he said/she said kind of layout but only the "he said" responded to me when I asked for the details about the photo....lol I'm really liking how it came out! Lifted the stitched heart from Cindy Tobey you can view her layout here on my pinterest 





 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!
