Day 4: Everything Hearts

Who doesn’t love hearts? In the mood for fluffy, frilly and pink? That’s what I originally thought when I started scavenging for supplies for this piece. I had visions of the pink card stock and lacy doilies from years gone by.

That’s not what began to emerge as I sat down for today’s prompt. Hearts for sure, but not the frilly kind. I was inspired by a technique using layers of tissue paper and gel medium (matte) to encase the hearts. I love how the tissue paper becomes sturdier while looking more fragile. How appropriate for hearts!
