Heart Art

valentine collage 1

In honor of St. Valentine’s Day today, I was inspired to create heart art. After I colored several hearts by layering Prismacolor pencil, I cut them out. Then I used them as stencils for a watercolor painting.

Several layers of Prussian Blue and Alizarin Crimson later, my painting still needed something more. I collaged the heart stencils onto the painting with clear acrylic paint, and then added some more hearts that I cut out of both transparent and opaque textured handmade papers.

The final product is my way of saying that love is the answer. We don’t always need the words to say it: I heart you!
