Well, worth a try, right?
So, first, cut out a couple heart shapes. I used a muslin cloth.
Then gather my supplies, brushes, acrylic paints, water basin, paper towels, Styrofoam plate to use as a paint pallet.
Place the colors of choice for flowers to come, out on the plate. Starting with the liner brush (the thin round), I just did a thin line to look like vines and from there little rosebuds sprouted.
After the rosebuds, I added tiny leaves here and there, then tiny blue flowers. Then just draw, with the brush, little lines connecting the dots...........or connecting everything to the vines. Just be loose and it'll look more natural. Ohhh, but then when I'd finished, I remembered, Ana would have to have enough room around the design for a seam. Soooo, I decided this would not do. So, I did another, starting in the center rather than around the edge, then I'd send both in hopes that she might get one good finished heart from the two.
These are what went off in the mail to Ana.
And, in a few days, this is the heart I received in the mail . How sweet....with one little hand rolled rose, another yoyo flower with button center, and a third flower made from what looked like individual tiny petals with frayed natural edges. LOVED IT!!! And, this is where she landed.......her new home, atop my little vintage thread spools in a basket that I made years ago.
Then in a few more days, I received an email from Ana with pictures of what she'd done with my little 'flat' hand painted hearts.
They did turn out to be kinda cute, don't cha think?
Thank you so very much, Ana, for allowing me to take part, even though you did have to change directions a tiny bit just for me. It was fun..........especially on my THIRD DAY IN, to be involved in this exchange. It was my first, but I'm sure it WON'T be my last.
HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY, YA'LL 8-)
