sacre coeur

yes, that heart of all hearts!

monday should have been the day but you know how things are....we skip and jump across the stream from one stone to another, wishing, wanting, dreaming until all the elements suddenly come together.
so....last night i settled into my little creative cocoon and began.  and it can now be shared with "recuerda mi corazon" and all who share in it.
creating this sacred heart was somewhat new as far as techniques.
i used sooooo many textures and mediums and layers.  embroidery, distress inks, calligraphy ink to distress the background, vintage lace, shoe polish, fabric snippets and tim holtz alphabet letters.
it will now be mounted and probably given as a gift to a friend in germany who loves the sacred heart.

my favorite saint, the saint of the little things, therese of lisieux.

borrowed from rachel ashwell's blog

and this treasure you may ask? well ebay has had it for sale for a long time and i keep coming back to it but it is way beyond my budget so maybe, just maybe i can make one myself?


Quiero lo que Tu quieres,

lo quiero porque lo quieres,

lo quiero como lo quieres,

lo quiero en cuanto lo quieres.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday--any day is sacred when we pay attention to the divine. I'm sure your friend will feel truly blessed to receive your art.

Beautiful art work. St Theresa, (Little Flower) is my favourite Saint too, I was baptised Theresa Clare but have always been called Clare.
