What you need:

  • Bella Vivo Artist Board 6” x 6”
  • Faber Castell Gelatos
  • Cartridge Paper
  • Kaisercraft XO Collectables
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors
  • Spray Bottle
  • Glue 

What you do:

  1. Take a Bella Vivo Artist Board and a selection of Faber Castell Gelatos sticks. Take one colour at a time and create solid circles in a variety of different sizes across the surface of the Bella Vivo Artist Board. Continue to add more solid circles in alternate colours of various sizes. These can overlap existing circles or be small circles within larger ones. Continue the process until most of the surface is covered in colour.
  2. Take a wide brush and wet with water, softly drag the brush across the surface of the board. This will soften any circle shapes so they blend into the background.
  3. Take a white Faber Castell Gelatos Stick and scrap off shavings of the white stick into a small pot using scissors or a knife. Add about 15ml of water and mix the white shavings until they have dissolved and you are left with a white liquid. Pour this into a spray bottle and then spray over the surface of the design. Leave to dry.
  4. From the Kaisercraft XO Collectables range, arrange the words “truly” “madly” and deeply” underneath each other onto the Bella Vivo Artist Board. Secure them with glue. Use black paper and cut out three small hearts that are 2.5cm wide using the heart template below. Glue the hearts into position next to each word. Alternatively, you could draw your preferred words on coloured paper and cut them out or
