Last one..so sad!

Here's my last one! :( So sad and it went by so fast! I love all of your awesome comments on my posts. I loved looking at all of your art and blogs and on Facebook! Fun times!

This started with a wooden canvas again and I glued down a couple of pages from an old book. Then I added my colors, watermelon colors.

I added some white with the end of  a paintbrush for dots. The  brown was scrapped on with an i-tunes card. I really didn't know where I was going with this I just added some color and made a background.

I added some crackle paint. I have no luck with the stuff that you put on first let dry and then add the paint. I guess I'm too darn impatient. But the crackle on the heart and on the sides is Tim Holtz paint. Love it! It works!

I added the cards at the top then the cardboard heart. The cards on the heart are little vintage ones from a garage sale. I added the words and the vintage bingo pieces at the bottom. Which one side spells bingo and the other side is bingo backwards.

I added some charcoal for shading and a white gel pen here and there. Thank you guys for looking and leaving comments! I love and appreciate them all!

A really fab piece of art work. I love the background texture and the playing cards - beautiful. I always have problems with crackle paint too, so I'll give the Tim Holtz stuff a go - thanks for the info!
