And now, let's move on my first project using those products!
When I first saw that heart, I thought to do some multiple stamping, rotating the image to create a "mandala" effect. I used to color mandalas when I was young, I also had a round mechanism that helped me to create some of these, and it was so much fun.
So, I stamped the first heart on a piece of Transotype Perfect Coloring paper, using some Copic Friendly ink and then turned the page and I repeated it four times. You need to be sure to align the center of the heart, but that's quite easy to do.
I then colored everyhing in a simple way, using one marker for each area and creating a rainbow effect at the centre.
I only need to find some sort of "rule" to color the outside: when I went to outer pieces, I used the previous color on the right. And I easily completed everything.
I then cut the panel to a 4,25"x4,25" and put a piece of Heavyweight Translucent Vellum, where I die cut the Heart using the Heart Burst Dienamics and aligned it to my rainbow image.
I then added a small strip with the Hello sentiment and matted the scene using a piece of 4,75"x4,75" black cardstock.
Even if this is something really different from what I am used to do, I was so happy on how it turned out my "mandala" design! I really hope you will like too.
