My Heart Art


Happy Sunday!!!  I didn’t get anything posted on my blog yesterday because I made a sudden decision last night to head down to our lake house for the night.  I had planned a garage sale to help raise money for the lake association and I had promised to work a few hours.  I originally planned to go down Saturday but figured nothing much was going on so we left Friday night. 

I was thrilled at the prospect of searching through “whatever” to find little pieces of this and that to use in my mixed media art that I’ve been playing with lately.  Like the one I have above.

This heart started out as a 1980’s??? wooden heart that was painted in the country blue and rose color paint with those stenciled Amish kids and squares on it.  Well… I decided to turn it into something my son could give to grandma for Mother’s Day!!

I used various pieces of paper I liked and even some sheet music that I “Scored!!” at my local thrift store.  (OMGosh I was thrilled when I asked the check out clerk if they ever had any old sheet music and he brought me a HUGE grocery bag from the back FILLED with old brittle and yellowed music and sold to me for $2!!!!!)

I added paints, Glimmer Mists, Thickers and a few other ephemera that I found in my stash.  I added a little bling to it and even a small amount of OLD dried baby’s breath that I bundled up with some twine and also added to the front.

She LOVED it!!!    Tomorrow I will share the metal hanging I made for MY mom and share a little story about our evening at the lake.  My mom… she just amazes me.  Smile

Have a great day!  *smile*
