We're using mixed media in this DIY craft project, featuring a beautiful romantic sunset and beach scene. Perfect for Valentines, anniversary, or even wedding gifts & decor.
There's something elegant and classy about wooden crafts, I love it! I decided to use makeup to make a faint sunset so that the heart is coloured but the wood still shows through. I then sealed it in with mod podge. I have used UV resin for the water/sea, and sand at the bottom to represent a beach. I have also used a new form of mod podge that I haven't used ever before- 3D effects!
