Hello everyone and welcome to another week. 2018 is whizzing by…is that because I am getting old, or has time actually sped up?
I didn’t think I was going to be happy with this piece but, in the end, I was quite satisfied with it and glad that I didn’t give up on it (which, I confess, happens a lot with me…). The little bird-man was originally holding a letter in his right hand, but I cut that out and replaced it with a heart. Off to the right hand side of the photo, you can see a “dud” heart that didn’t work out, complete with the little notch cut out of it for the bird-man’s thumb. Sometimes it takes me a few goes to line things up exactly right 🙂 I think it’s worth the effort – the end result looks pretty good, like the heart was always part of the picture. I added an extra little one on the parcel too. So now he looks like he is going somewhere, with plenty of heart 🙂
Hope you’re having a wonderful day today x
