Sacred Hearts, Fiery Love

Posted by on Mar 30, 2014 in Uncategorized | 82 comments

Sacred Hearts winner is Becky Massa! Congratulations Becky!


It is my turn to use the Sacred Hearts Stencils from Artistcellar in our little blog hop.

My friend Kerry came over and we went to town using these stencils with paint and a Gelli Plate on fabric. I wanted the hearts to look rustic.



I cut out one of them and tried it out on a collaged journal page. This is the Divine stencil.


The wistful young man at the bottom of the page was thinking of a Latina who had recently stolen his heart. I drew her in.


Her dancing heart too was on fire with love. I used the Immaculate stencil around her head.


Then I added the final fire to the pages with Silk Glazes. Their story is all about the fire.IMG_2649
