Spray paint hearts

Upcycled cardboard hearts!

Our gorgeous rainbow hearts, we used cardboard from some deliveries, cut them up into hearts!….upcycling….using @kmartaus spray paints, they have given us such stunning effects, it works better if you can let each layer dry to avoid muddy murky colours or use similar colours together, like pink/orange. Or purple/blue etc… hope that helps a little bit?! Ohhh and painting the cardboard surface white to get brighter results

Paper mache plates, how beautiful did these turn out!!?

Who doesn’t love decorating paper mache!?…… these plain bowls from @zart_art and added a pop of colour from @globalcolours and the outside painted with that devine copper paint.
