I stitched the 2 pieces together, leaving a gap. As i stitched I trapped in a couple of lengths of lace/ribbon into the seams. . Then I turned the whole thing through the right way. Next i stuffed the heart as tightly as possible, and closed up the gap. The final bit of prep is to give the whole heart 2-3 coats of gesso. Paint this on nice and even, taking care to keep the ribbons out of the way.
Keep the paint strokes of gesso smooth and even.
Now take some white tissue paper and some coloured tissue paper. Chose your stamps and cover a decent sized piece of tissue.
I chose to use THIS STAMP FROM PAPERARTSY...
I then tore the tissue into small squares..
Finally I glued each square to the padded heart, alternating the colours.
Once covered I gave the whole thing a coat of matte medium to seal it and prevent the tissue from peeling off.
Hope you like this, it really is easy to make, and perfect for so many occasions. Remember you can cut any shape. Perhaps a teddy bear to hang in a new baby's room, flower shapes or stars for a girlie princess room, or alien,spaceships for a boys room.
