Note the broken mug I've kept around just for this very occasion. I knew I wanted to use it for a Valentine or maybe a broken heart collage.
know realized from before that I was supposed to roll the paint out on a plate, then place it on the plexiglass, but remembered only after I had already spread the paint on the plexiglass. Oh look, I even have the plate ready for the paint. Why I forgot is beyond me.
Patty at Magpie's Nest, who explained how she made hers. Apparently, I was making mine wrong, since I was adding strings to mine, and they obviously don't take strings. Instead, art flags are strung on a rope or line which is then hung between two fixed points.
For this flag, I used a piece of torn bed sheet, paint, hand dyed fabric, my broken heart mug, a black Zig pen, a white Zig pen, and lavender thread.
And while we are on the subject of hearts and Valentines, don't forget to join the Billion Rising To End Violence Against Women and Girls today. It's the best way to show the world and your community your feelings about this injustice that affects one in three women worldwide, much of it from "loved ones." In case you aren't familiar with this worldwide movement, or to read more about it, go here or type the words "Billion Women Rising" into your favorite search engine. Since there isn't an event within 200 miles of where I live, I plan to dance in the street like I will suggest my friends and I do who are coming to tea today.
And please have a fun and safe Valentine's day!!
