Yeah, I know it's past Valentine's day. I just get these ideas and start working on them, so sometimes they come together "on time" and sometimes they don't. This is an artist's canvas with letter tiles I made by cutting foam core to size, coating with wall board compound, sculpting a line around the outer edges and a letter in the center. The heart is handmade from paper pulp, dyed to a pinkish color. I added some thread bits and paper snippets for texture and interest, then poured it into a ceramic cookie mold with a floral design. The tiles were painted white and an assortment of blues, grays, and touches of burgundy. The lines and letters are dark blue-gray, and then I rubbed metallic gold highlights over the tops of the letters and the designs left by the mold on the paper heart.
The canvas is dark blue-gray with lots of light blues and grays and touches of white, pink, and gold for interest. After gluing the tiles and heart on the canvas, I decided I liked it without a frame. I may change my mind later...
I live in Texas with my five amazing children and wonderful husband. I've been creating things my whole life, using all types of media. I like vintage, shabby, and steampunk styles, with my individual style being a blend of all three.
I also have an etsy shop here: tps://www.etsy.com/shop/StarlingLane?ref=hdr_shop_menu
