Creating some texture with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Titanium White and Bubble Wrap,

The hearts are glued to the bracelets with DecoArt Media Matte Medium.
Drew spots and circles with a black permanent marker, too
Painted DecoArt Media White Gesso inside the bangles and sanded afterwards to get a smooth surface
