Trust - Mixed Media Paper Mache Heart

Wow, it's Wednesday already?!  Yikes, the week is flying by!!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far.  As I mentioned yesterday, I had a chance to work on another paper mache heart over the weekend.  So this makes II in my Heart Series:

My inspiration for this heart came from another project I've done recently.  (I'll share that one soon)

I started by layering book text, then adding fluid acrylics and 3-D Enamel flourishes.  I really love adding them to my projects ;D

Next I drew and painted her in.  I really had fun creating all those beautiful curls.  It's funny because when I draw a person my husband always asks "who is that".  I don't draw with anyone in mind but I do add a couple of my features.  So all of my "ladies" will always have a mole under their nose and full lips like me. ;D (granted I make their lips much larger, lol).

I've been in need of some meditation lately so her closed eyes and the sentiment I chose reflect that.  My work is always a reflection of who I am, what I'm feeling and the colors of my soul at the time.

I hope you liked the second installment of this series.  If you missed the first one, you can check it out HERE.  I'm entering this project in the Simon Says Stamp & Show - Absolutely Anything Goes Challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your sweet comments!  May your day be beautiful and filled with inspiration!!
