Howdy Friends! Happy Monday!!!
my kids are back in school? They started last thursday.. and it's been a long time since I had a quiet monday! All to myself! Getting so much done.. it's crazy! My NEWEST online class starts tomorrow!! our Artsy Bangles class! COME JOIN ME if you haven't signed up yet! HERE is the info!
Today I wanted to post the newest Behind the Art Video.. using the August 2012 Mixed Media kit!!

okay.. so this month I had some fun crazy ideas I wanted to do.. really whimsical and different.. I had hearts on the brain.. but didn't want something that everyone always sees.. so this is what I came up with..
and NO the canvas isn't upside down.. they are bleeding "heart" flowers.. something kinda fun and different! They were taken from an idea I had recently in one of my art journals..
as you an see on my canvas version I added leaves to the stems.. not sure I like that or not.. but it works :) I also added butterflies to the canvas version.
so kind whimsical and fun.. perfect end for summer right?
used a lot of texture on this canvas with paints and tissue paper.. so I hope you enjoy it!
See you back here wednesday when i talk about the new fall classes!! wahoo!
