She Sends You Hope & Heart

Hello Everyone
I have a few catch-up posts to organise but as I was tidying up my (much neglected!) Blog, I spied this drafted post from months and months ago, from when I was participating in a Heart Ornament swap hosted by the incredibly talented Vickie Kammerer and a group containing equally talented artists, it really was an honour to be part of this swap. To package my heart ornaments I tucked them inside pockets with a suitably heart themed tag.onelynnemoncrieffOne of my oldest Character Constructions stamps features on all the tags.

    There’s something so endearing about frayed fabric, and distressing. Combined with the red, it ticks all my boxes. Maybe a connection to love worn toys from the past and my first red shoes. It all made me smile! Xx

    Beautiful, inspired, and something which carries a message that speaks to the heart. Truly beautiful art from the heart. I love them, Lynne.

    Love the simplicity of this. Such sweet touches with the polka dot fabric piece. This image is a favorite of mine. She is so beautiful. Love the heart adorned with the backers’ twine. Red and white always brings to mind those lovely Valentines from childhood for me. The gesso swiped tags and envelopes is the perfect background for your image and that precious message. Simplicity always wins out! Well done, Lynne! inkybru xx

    Lynne, dear, they are the sweetest little heartfelt messages from you, to your friends. Everything says friendship, and kindness. The polka dot fabric is so wonderful here, together with the nature tones, and makes it pop with loving feelings. I love the heart button ,and twine, too. The lovely lady carries her heart outside her shirt, just like you. And so perfect with the envelope, and the wonderful messages. Hope your Saturday is sunny- here it storms and is grey !!
    Dorthe, xx
