5 for 5 Valentines Day 1


Welcome to Day 1 of our 5 for 5 Valentine's Blog Event. Today our theme is "Hearts". Each day our 5 Designers will post one Valentine Inspired Project based on a theme. Some of us are offering prizes, so be sure to visit all the links below and leave comments.

For my Hearts project I made a Mixed Media Heart painting on wood. It's a 4 x 11 piece of wood I picked up last year when my house was under construction. All the paints are Dina Wakely Heavy Body Acrylic. I also used some Stamper's Big Brush Pens by Faber Castell Design Memory Craft for accents and shading. And I used a white paint pen. This painting was so fun and really easy to make. It turned out better than I ever imagined. I cannot draw, so if you are like me, don't be afraid to try new things. I hope you got a little Valentine's Inspiration today. To get more visit each of the blogs below. We'll be posting for the next 4 days also. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This is wonderful, Donna! This will be a nice home décor item for your home - especially since you used wood that was being used to build it!! You have given me an idea for a plaque to use on my porch in the spring and summer. :)
