Heart and Soul...

 Hello Creatives 

You would certainly smile if you saw the process that went into 
creating this background. Created over weeks adding collage scraps, 
washi, fabric and lace, stencil scrapes and a wee bit of stitchery.

Limited messy time takes me back to crafting in my kitchen in 
between meal prep, cooking and excessive washing of hands 😊

Life is what it is but I am thankful..

Stamped, embossed and water coloured focal heart..

Shedding light on my chosen words.. born and bred in 
England and very much where my heart and soul lies..

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx

Wow again Tracey. This is another amazing piece. It's so romantic. And I love all textures and how you added colors this time. They all work together so beautifully. Squeezing in art time in the kitchen is still better than no art time, and I'm sure you'd agree with that. Plus, you must have had some fun,or at least it looks like you did. Happy new week. Hugs-Erika

This is a wonderful piece of heart art! I'm in love with all of the different layers and textures you've achieved with your background! The beautiful watercolor heart on top makes it special with your England tag! Your process is something that I love doing with art, so I'm glad you enjoyed the process and thank you for sharing your lovely art with my theme at AJJ! HUGS

Great work Tracey, well done. We are very lucky to live in this country. I'm sorry to hear about your mum and I understand what you're going through but you will get there even though I know you are probably feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. Take care and craft on. Hugs Angela xXx said...

When it looks as beautiful as this it doesn't matter how long it took - it must have been satisfying to complete it too! Take care of you too, hugs, Chrisx
