Faux Enameled Hearts

My intention at the start of the week, to explore one technique, has led to my learning a few new things. I had not planned to use ink in creating these faux enamel pieces. But I ended up combining two techniques I had read about and I loved the result. The colors are deep and vibrant.

I think I had the most fun creating the texture plates. I have so many ideas for ways to use this. So no sooner than I get started, my list of things to explore grows even longer.

I am far from perfecting the faux enamel look, but now at least I have the "how-to" on file for later use.

See you next week .
