Framed Weaved Hearts.

Hello Everyone,
And to those who celebrate a Happy Valentines Day.
This is the entry for the 'Just Add Ink challenge' : Just add stripes.

I have a piece of Art for you this morning, I made it for friends  just before Christmas, they had just moved into a new apartment, they have no pictures for their walls so I thought they would like this and I am pleased to say they did.
All the hearts have been weaved out of strips of paper.

I painted and doodled a large piece of watercolour paper, then cut this into strips and covered a Heart Template.


Looking forward to the weekend.
Smiles:)
Sue
