Bude WI Craft Club - Having fun playing with paint and lots of dots.

Dotting Hearts for Valentines Day.

Nineteen Bude WI members had a lot of fun today.

Based on techniques from the Folk It Starter Kit 

and DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint

Everyone practiced the three design variations on card.
Before deciding which design they wanted to paint on a Small Chunky Wood heart. 

Some of them I left unpainted, It seemed a shame to paint over the natural wood effect. 
The remainder were base coated Lamp Black and then Titanium White
before distressing with sand paper.
I managed to take a few pics to show the end results.
Each and every one is unique, just the way it should be and a little bit of artistic license too.




 
Happy Painting - all amazed on what dots can achieve.
