I finished the large paper mache heart that I started on Sunday. Check it out!!
I love the way it turned out!! I usually don't draw people or anything really on my projects but when I first saw the paper mache heart, I immediately imaged this kind of image.
I started out by prepping the heart with a layer of gesso and then I drew my focal image. After that I added some texture with molding paste and a stencil. Next came all the layers of color and my favorite 3-D Enamel swirls.
With the background off to a good start, I moved onto coloring her in. I wanted her to have an ethic flair ;D
I added tons of rose and flourish rubons and a Tim Holtz heart stamp.
It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to say and then it came to me, "Be True To Who You Are". I added "Courage" to the TH stamp after that because it takes courage to be true to yourself. I chose this quote because it expresses how I feel right now. It's been just over a year since I've returned to the "creative" world. I've always had a passion for creating but as you all know, life sometimes gets in the way. So it had been years since I'd done any kind of creating and I was feeling unfulfilled. I began soul searching and decided that what I needed to do was to get back in the studio and be true to myself. I dived right in and launched Honey Bee Studios and I've been so happy with where this journey is taking me.
These days I'm even finding the courage to actually draw again :D I still have a few more of these hearts so I see a series in my future!! Well friends, as always, THANK YOU so much for stopping by and for all the sweet comments you leave!!
Have A Beautiful Day!!!
