Seeing the beauty in the little things!

Being with my family is a blessing.
Watching my children grow into incredible men
The joy of having two loving and beautiful daughter (n-laws)
The time I had with two wonderful parents.

|This piece was inspired by so many wonderful teachers!|
This piece was created for my HeART exchange with Louise Gale!
I recently purchased a new size
8 x 16
from my local Jerry's Artarama
and wanted to create a piece
that was inspired by so many teachers.
I wanted to use techniques that
I had learned in workshops,
through books, Somerset Studio, blogs and e-courses.
I had a blast with this one!
I started by collaging papers onto the board,
I stamped, stenciled and added "stuff"
all over the papers.
I scraped paint colors of
titanium white and cobalt turquoise
thank you Mindy Lacefield
for inspiring me at Serendipity!
I then cut out a heart of antique ledger paper
in the shape of a heart,
punched hearts and gave it wings,
I then added some words that
I wanted to say . . .
"Remember to listen to your heart and dance gently"
I am so happy with the results!
I then took a photo with my Instagram
using my new Iphone and added a few effects with the photo
and I love what you see here! So I wanted to share it with you!
To my readers . . .
you have my heart,
you have my love,
I thank you for your support,
your wonderful words of encouragement
and for giving me the motivation to keep sharing.
Love YOU! donna lee
