From my Heart Mixed Media Art

I had some time to play with my art on Valentine’s day…my heart was full, and a lot of love went into this one! My amazing husband brought home a beautiful yellow bouquet and my youngest son gave us a pastel painted heart collage and his own heart card that he made in the morning.  My oldest gave us hugs and kisses and the end of the day we all went out for a very yummy dinner together!  So nice to just enjoy time together and also have time to do what we each love to do!

Did you treat yourself with love?  Did you do something special for someone else or maybe for yourself this weekend? I would love to hear about it…

Heart Art Mixed Media Preview 1



I really love how this turned out and I had so much fun doing it.  Here is a time lapse video version of my process…I am hoping it will encourage you to get creative and let go of any creative fears…sometimes a visual of the process can break down the intimidation of the doing. Don’t be afraid to try something new…art is play and we all know how to play even if we haven’t done it in a while!  If it makes your heart happy, then why not do it!?
