These hot pink and gold hearts were punched out, then sewn on embroidery thread. They made a wonderful little garland.
On my Facebook page, I have been sharing a photo every day on a particular topic (one topic per month). January was Hearts and February is Red. Yes, a little bit of an overlap for hearts and red. I just love hearts. So here are some of my favorite Heart photos.
These are paper covered pencils. I love the hearts. You can see more paper covered pencils along with instructions on my blog post: Paper Wrapped Pencils.
These heart paperclips I made from regular paperclips I love colorful paperclips. Now I even have heart ones. What fun!
I found this card when I was going through some old files. It was a proof for a wedding invitation for a friend a number of years ago. She actually chose a different design of mine that didn’t include a heart.
This is how the above card looks when it is opened.
This is a blast from the past. As I was looking through some old files, I found this. It is a proof that my mom did for a wedding that took place in 1977. I introduced my mom to calligraphy a short time before she did this. It is one of her earliest pieces of calligraphy.
For this card, I folded a piece of decorated paper I had left over from another project into the heart. Then I printed “Love Ya” in red with a stencil font.
I made this using ink and gouache on printmaking paper.
Just to let you know, March will be Tools (as in the tools I use to make my art) and April will be A-Word-A-Day and May will be Flowers. Feel free to offer suggestions for future topics for months to come.
You can join in, too. Post your own Red photos on Facebook in February and tag them #MyFebruaryChallenge #Red #MyPaperArts.
