I Love Pinterest (and my husband)

It would be something of an understatement to say I’m not the romantic type. Romcoms make me nauseous; I find fairytale weddings about as appealing as dental surgery and I am not impressed by precious jewellery (I rarely wear jewellery but when I do, it’s usually made from buttons:-) ). It’s a wonder I ever got married! But I did (though our wedding was not the fairytale type – no church, no flowers, no bridesmaids, no photographers, as few guests as we could get away with…) and that was 15 years ago today. We don’t make a big deal of these milestones, but I do like to make a card, and I was kind of stuck for appropriate ideas. And that’s where Pinterest came to the rescue. I love Pinterest! I had this warm/cool colour art project pinned to my homeschool art ideas board, but I thought it was just the job:

hearts

I like how it turned out. And it was very relaxing, almost therapeutic, to make.

By the way, if you are a Pinterester and you’d like to follow my boards, you can find me here: http://www.pinterest.com/vivjm/

    Beautiful Viv, I just pinned your art, I think the kids in my art class would love to draw these hearts. – Sharon

      Oh yes, I think it would be a great project to do with your class – such a fun way of seeing the whole warm/cool colour contrast thing.
