Love's been in the air at Inspiration Avenue this week - this week's challenge theme was "so romantic".
My submission is this little 6 x 4" mixed media canvas called "Faded Romance".
I wanted the background to look quite old and weathered so there was lots of putting on layers of paint then scraping them off again!
If you'd like to try this technique for a weathered finish, paint a base colour onto your canvas, then once it's dry dab some Vaseline over some sections, before painting a second colour over the top.
Once the second coat is dry, the paint that's been applied over the Vaseline can be rubbed away really easily, leaving a "peeling paint" effect.
When the background was as I wanted it I added the six little collaged squares. I may play around with it a little more yet, I think I need to leave it for a couple of days before I decide!
