This is one of the first pictures I ever pinned on Pinterest. I loved the idea of use beach glass chips to make a design, and lord knows I have a lot of chips. It was just a matter of whether or not I could make myself glue them to canvas in a rather permanent way. I also didn't want the picture to be vertical, but horizontal and not encased behind glass.
On the other hand, I keep said chips inside 2 cool salt & pepper shakers, and there was no room to put anymore glass in them so I decided to make the project. I got a square of artist's canvas at the store and first did the outer heart, but felt it was missing something. I asked my pals on Facebook if I should add the second row and everyone said definitely. After I finished it, I felt it still needed one more row and again, my friends concurred. I swear I reach all my decisions via Facebook committee!!! But that's sometimes the only way I can see the forest for the trees.
Here is the final version. I really love how it came out. There's a kind of fluid flow about it. I didn't use any of my super special red chips because against the canvas they looked brown.
Now I have room for more chips in my shakers.
Two weeks after Easter and I'm still decorating these dadgum eggs. Are you so eggcited to see them?
I've had that angel in my Christmas decorations since I was a little kid.
Next year if I vocalize the desire to decorate eggs again, SOMEBODY STOP ME!
