More completed Styrofoam heart fun!
Many of you might remember my instagram pic of the top one. Maddy got in on the fun and helped with the second, and she made some of her own too. They are really fun, and if you are beginning to figure me out, I love using landfill in every way possible.
All you do here, is take a piece of cardboard for your base. Yay! Then gesso, and paint as you wish. From a large cup, we cut out heart shapes. Glue down, and then weigh down with heavy books until dry. Styrofoam likes to pop back up! Then, tear or cut, little shapes from left over pieces of styrofoam, and glue down again. Then pour in your gel medium, or mod podge works great, and paint and glitter to your hearts content! I stamped the board and edged with watercolor crayons and water!
So, if you must get styrofoam, and it does seem to happen more than I care to admit, then make some fun stuff out of it. Remember those ice cream cones. I made them in the same way. You can see them HERE!!! Happy creating!!!
