I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Hessian Hearts

Hello all!  It's sneak peek time here amidst all the watercolour wanderings and oxide experimentation.  I'm hoping to tempt you over to Destination Inspiration at A Vintage Journey to see what I've made with this month's travel bag contents.


I felt pretty at home with most of the ingredients, but the designated colour for this month was way out of my comfort zone.  I hope you'll have time to hop over and see how I coped!  Have a great week, everyone.

If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.

Gorgeous, Alison! Totally love everything about it! The crackled red hearts really pop against the canvas and are a wonderful part of your design. Like Sue, I also love the stencil addition! And the little letter blocks...awesome!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Wow! Great project. I love the texture to it--the crackle hearts, the burlap, the cardboard stencil, the metal fixings, the globs of paint/paste.

Team Clark said...

Those crackled hearts are super yummy against the burlap! Love this Alison! Hugs, Autumn
