This project was totally inspired by not only my love of mosaics and tiles, but also Yulia Brodskaya’s incredible PAPERgraphic art! I love her paper quilling and the most beautiful wall décor that she creates out of strips of paper. This months April kit came in such rich colors that I thought it might pop against a black, white, and canvas background. The canvas album that I received from C&T Publishing was perfect for the look that I wanted to achieve. It’s also no secret that I love my Honey Bee Scissors, and so cutting flowers that I later pinched, folded, and glued together just made this piece a bit more… well, Heidi! As for the bling? I am just a true Bad Girl through and through, I can’t leave a piece until it is well accessorized; I poured on a bit of adhesive and then spilled (yes, spilled!) the gems until I felt the flowers burst off the page. A bit chaotic yes, but this canvas speaks volumes for the way that I am feeling at the moment… waiting for spring to glamorously burst out and chase away these dark winter days.
