A Valentine

Last week I had a coffee date with a friend, one of the things we talked about was playing with canvas in our art journals,  I shared that natural canvas (duck dloth) from the fabric store was a fun element to play with.  When I got home, I could not quit thinking about duck cloth, so I dug out mine out and started to play.  I punched out this heart with one of the Spellbinder's dies, duck cloth ravels a lot, so what happens after painting and playing with it are these jagged edges, I loved them and took the heart to photoshop and created an element.  I scanned in an old pillow case that I can not part with and created a background paper with creases and folds.  Then used two brushes I created of spatters and hearts.  Put them all together with some fun words and you have a Valentine.  Hope everyone has a fabulous LOVE filled week, hugs
