Art with Hearts - another collage

"An understanding heart warms all that are graced with its presence."
 Another collage with a prominent heart, paper mounted on foam core to add elevation.  The piece is on a flat canvas, but I didn't like the flat look, so I built a box from scrap wood and placed that behind the canvas.  I painted the wood to mimic the design on the paper.  I also used metal objects, shiny red brads, a Chinese fortune, and a wooden piece with the words "care more"

Side view - showing you my handi-work with the painted wood behind the canvas.


  1. Nice heart! I like the leaves that you painted to match the paper. Very serene color scheme.

  2. I love, love, love your heart art! How wonderfully talented you are! "I built a box from scrap wood" indeed. Yowza if I tried that I wouldn't have any fingers left, and my box would be really funny looking!!!!! YOU are amazing!

    Thank you so much for linking up with Guest Heart Thursday!

  3. Wonderful collage, I like the depth of the piece. Great heart.
