This is my version of the project done by Angela Holt (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69-68DvwtB0&t=1623s). Hers is much bigger, so has more elements.
It's so much fun to play with a variety of inks and materials.
The embroidery hoop is 10 inches in diameter and covered in a lightweight canvas, then painted with a thick coat of white gesso.
The heart is half of a paper mache heart ornament that was glued onto the canvas. There are resin elements, metal, shells, beads and mulberry paper flowers layered with some stenciled designs and some lace and paper to add texture. Layers of paint, inks and gesso create the colors.
Thank you Angela for sharing your talent and this beautiful idea.
