Wacky Holiday - Inspire Your Heart with Art

Inspire Your Heart With Art Day sounds straightforward enough. Go to a gallery, theatre, cinema, or music venue, and soak up the art. Remember the instruction, though: Inspire Your Heart

I decided when I made this project to start with the wings. And then thought hmmmmm these colors. After I was done with the wings, I went through my stamps and picked out the Flower. I was trying to be very open with my choices. I didn't want to be formulaic I guess. I wanted to let it flow... in my way. This is what I ended up with.
Once I had the images picked and colored... I looked through my paper. I found the design paper Front and back.Then I thought again about the project and decided I needed a heart. And then I GASP Cut it out by hand.... Freehand. no drawing, no Spellbinders, no folding the paper in half first. STRESS! WOW! My little lopsided, imperfect, uneven heart. So proud of myself. 
In the end, I really like how it turned out. It is different for me, just a mix and match and stuff... but it isn't expected either. So this is how my heart has been inspired. Hope you all get out and inspire your heart!
