Winged Heart mixed media canvas by LORI WOODS

Hello creative friends! Since it's February, the month of love, I thought I would create a heart-based project.
I started by taking a piece of cheesecloth and using soft matte gel, I scrunched the material onto the canvas to create lots of interesting texture. Once dry, I painted it with chocolate impasto paint then dry-brushed over with gold metallic paint.
The Dusty Attic Entangled Heart and Wings #3 chipboard were perfect for my centrepiece. I built up a composition using the chipboards and some resin pieces from the machine parts mould. I coloured these with red wine, flame, gold and hazelnut metallic paints. 
I added some diamond pebbles to the background and brushed these with white gold wax. Then I finished everything off with some watered down jade impasto to create some areas of patina effect and some touches of  steampunk metallic flakes for extra shine.
I hope this gives you some ideas for your Valentines projects :)
