Happy Heart

Well- I have to say I have had SOOO much fun with this project. My friend and I have exchanged a little something and have put a whole lot of ourselves into the project. We met today for coffee and re-exchanged our projects. ( i know i didn't do a very good job of explaining our process- hopefully you get the idea and i hope you try it too!)  I had given her an antique cigar box and she gave me a board (Sherri- i can never remember what the name of the board is). Anyway- Sherri and i have meet up every now and then to exchange ideas, thoughts about art and lots of other topics- she is the most peaceful woman i know. Sherri is the kind of woman that makes me feel good about myself and i always walk away feeling so calm. Her energy is filled with kindness; gentleness.  I am so grateful she is my friend and in my life (Thank you Sherri- truly.)
Here is what i created for her (from her board she already had started). I hope she enjoys it. :)
I baked clay and had a blast!! i stamped; glued; painted; added more paint; gesso; glitter; glass tiles and beads. This was way cool to do. Much inspiration came from the book my mom lent to me- it's called Mixed media Mosaics by Laurie Mika. I will post what Sherri made for me tomorrow....it's fabulous! :)

Have an awesome evening.
ps- speaking of "hearts"....i think it's something i know i take for granted...my heart. It's so very fragile (yet so strong). I think nothing of it and have been lately. I love my heart...my heart loves.
