Book Heart Art
Have no idea what to call this, so Book Heart Art it is! I am actually very proud of myself for this one! I really love it, and put a lot of thought into it, and it turned out great!
As much as I would like to say this was ALL my idea, its not. I originally saw this image (below) and knew it would be fun to replicate. I thought it was really sweet, and then I added a little spin of my own to it...
Every Heart has a Story to Tell...
I heard this in a song and thought it was so true. And how perfect is it with the story heart!
For the heart, I actually used pages from the book A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I love that movie, and have seen it so many times, that I was totally over the book. It had been sitting in storage for years, so I didn't really consider it a loss. I mean, I love the story, and I think its sweet, simple, and romantic- which is perfect for this project.
And I actually searched through the book to find this page with this verse on it. I think it is beautiful, and the perfect face for my heart with a story
Isn't she purdy!
I started with this piece on the wall, where it was totally drowned out. It didn't stand out at all. Then, I moved it to my carved shelves where it looked okay, but still wasn't at its home.
Then I had a brain fart... DUH! Why don't I put it on the bookshelf with all the other books!?!?!?
I know, I thought WAY too hard about the whole process of this project. But I just couldn't help it! I love it when I get into a mood where the creative juices are flowing, and I am just beyond inspired. I also know that more than likely anybody who sees this thing in my house isn't going to see any of these thoughts or details when they look at it (which is totally fine) but this thought process makes me love this piece even more.
AHHHHH. Perfect placement. Perfect idea
Totally in Love...
