Hi everyone and I hope you're keeping warm if you're here in the UK. More snow down here in the south and very pretty it is as long as the roads stay clear :D, a photo I took today is further down. For this project I've tried colouring directly onto a wooden heart decoration, I like to see the effects I get on different surfaces. I used pencils and as the wood is a very soft wood the effect is less precise than but I like the rustic effect. I coloured a background but left the edges uncoloured. On this side I've used Tilda with dot bow and the flying heart on the large hanging heart. The other hearts are freehand.

On the other side of the main heart I've used the gorgeous Tilda blowing hearts, I think she's really sweet and can be used for occasions other than valentine and of course neither of these Tilda's have wooden hearts :). The smaller wooden hearts are the same on both sides.

I'm entering into the following challenges:

Magnolia Down Under - Love is all around us
Midweek Magnolias - Valentine
Time for a Magnolia Challenge - Anything Goes
