Flying Hearts Monochromatic Canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Still choking away with this fluey virus thing and nasty cough-really hope its gone soon-thank you for all your get well messages over the past few days, I really appreciate them :-) Anyway, here I am with a piece of art I made :-)
For this project I started with a small square canvas which I painted with white acrylic paint. I then printed some gorgeous papers from Sarah Hurley's Collection-I am pretty sure from the Alice in Wonderland set onto cardstock. I then cut multiple little hearts out of this card with my Cricut Create. Next I folded all my hearts in half to give the look of flying-you can tell its inspired by butterflies! I glued these on the canvas to make the shape of a larger heart. I added six little hearts edged by red in the centre for a pop of colour too :-) What do you think?

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Art Impressions Stamps: Show me the Love
Moving along with the Times: Love is in the Air

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
