Hearts and Pearls

With it being Winter, and a particularly snowy one this year, I’ve fallen behind on my blog posts.  It seems that all the slushiness on the outside has made me somewhat sluggish on the inside as well.  However, the sun showed its blazing face on Thursday (and so far today looks pretty good too), so things have brightened up significantly.  And now my insides feel more energized as well…thank goodness for sunshine!

Okay, now moving on to sharing two small somethings with you.


Here’s a closer look at one.



And here’s a closer look at the other one.


Both heart canvases can be seen in the Jan/Feb/Mar issue of Somerset Life and the instructions are included in the article.

Awhile ago I shared similar canvases here on my blog (these were also created for presenting pearl earrings as a gift).

When you put your heart into something, that something shows love.  And showing love makes everyone beam…like the lustrous light that seems to emanate from the insides of a pearl.

  4. Very lovely mix-media art! I Love the simplicity of your two pieces.

    We’re escaping this endless snow-belt and heading off to Austin to babysit our darling 10-year-old grandson. I love doing creative projects with him; he’s a very creative fellow.

    I look forward to more of your beautiful work.
    Thanks for always sharing with us.

    These are beautiful, Becky. When the weather gets me down I search iTunes and download something new to keep me inspired 🙂 My creativity seems to thrive when I hear something that moves me 🙂
