Today is National Inspire Your Heart with Art Day and Unruly PaperArts is celebrating with a link up party. This is the piece I created for the day. I love art so I definitely wanted to join in the day. I have been creating in some form or another since I was a little girl.
The background was inspired by another piece that I created recently. I had gotten together with some others and checked out a local art studio in my area where trained artists provide instruction on how to paint a chosen picture. I have painted in the past, but have not picked up a paint brush in 2 years so I was pretty happy with how that painting turned out. This is the picture.
I decided I wanted to do the background again and thought it would be fun to do a little canvas for today. After I painted the background, I stamped the word "Art" onto it in black ink. I love this stamp, which comes from Rubber Dance Stamps, the Unruly PaperArts sponsor for February. Of course, it had to show how much I love paper arts so I added the hearts cut from card stock and everyone knows that I love bling so it had to be added, too. It helped to finish it off around the edges.
This is what I've created to celebrate the art that I love and have shared with you the inspiration behind it. Now, it's your turn. Head over to the Unruly PaperArts blog post and see how you can enter to win a great prize!
Happy Creating Everyone!
