Wow I can’t believe that this project has been a week in the making!  I did get a little side tracked with appointments, errands and even basketball (go Hoosiers) . . . just couldn’t help myself!

This is a 6×6 mixed media canvas that has been on my mind for some months . . . it just took awhile to get it done.   Because I used cardboard (chipboard) for the heart, it also qualifies for the March eTeam Picks Challenge.  You still have time to participate in the challenge and you can read more about it at the above link.


The word Believe was made with some old alphabet stencils and Black Studio 490 Embossing Paste.    The canvas was painted with my new Distress Paints and the flowers (made from watercolor paper) were colored with Distress Stains.

I ran out of my gold leafing pen while right in the adding the flecks, so I followed up with gold acrylic paint mixed with water.


Short and sweet from me today . . .

Thanks for stopping by!
