T Stands For My Cup Has Heart


Bleubeard and I are sharing our heARTS today at Art Journal Journey.  

You will also find us at my dining room table with my drink of the day.  As you can tell, "My cup has heart."




There are also some little heart "candies" that those of you in other countries get with your coffee drink, but we in the states do not.


For this page, I started with a sheet of 110 lb card stock I cut in half to 5.5 X 8.5 inches (13,97 X 21,59 centimeters).  The cup of cappuccino was found on the internet.  Since I only have black ink (inkjet printer) and black toner (laser printer), I printed the desaturated image and used a water soluble crayon to color around the heart.  I added three buttons from my stash and the sentiment, also colored with a water soluble crayon.  I hope you will stay for a drink then join Bleubeard and me at Art Journal Journey, with your heart inspired art, too. 

Now it's your turn.  By now you probably know the "rules," but in case you don't, please show something drink related. It can be photos, a place you visited, movies, tea cups, coffee mugs, a tea or coffee service, postcards, books, magazines, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, tags, ATCs, scrapbooking, or other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink.  Please share below and Bleubeard and I, along with the rest of the T gang will be by to visit.   Please link only your T post and not your blog in general.  Old photos are acceptable because they may be taken any time, not just on Tuesday, and not just this year.

Your journal page today is certainly full of heart, just how I like it! I always enjoy cappuccino extra when it has a heart on the top of it! And I'm sorry you don't get a cookie or candy with your coffee over there, that's always a great extra. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

Mia said...

What a gorgeous idea, Elizabeth!
You don't have heart stencils for coffee cups in US? Well, that's what I will send you next time I will send you a gift!!! Ha ha!!! Hugs, sweetie!!!

Julia Dunnit said...

Your cup sure does have heart, it looks great, I thought you’d painted the whole thing! I don’t drink cappuccino either (too milky), but am always taken with the art the baristas make in the foam. There are a couple places I know that put a Lotus caramel biscuit on the saucer, but generally here, you don’t get anything on the side when you order coffee, specially not from the big chain shops!

Love your hearts in the cup and I agree those that go out for coffee in the states do not get a sweet treat with it. great page Elizabeth and Happy T hugs Kathy

Eileen Bergen said...

I immediately imagined all the cups of cappuccino that our European T-ladies share so frequently. Those lovely cups make me long to like coffee. And so does your "painting." I love how you photographed it as well, Elizabeth.

Happy T-day! Eileen xx

That is a lovely cappuccino with a heart! (and from the heart I'm sure). You even have little sweeties. I didn't realize you don't get anything with your coffee in the States.
I love how you have painted the black and white image. Very clever.
A very happy T-day to you,
Lisca

Linda Kunsman said...

A lovely cappuccino, and I love how you added the color and heart "sprinkles". Happy T day!

Rita said...

Another cute one! I can tell this month is going to have a lot of sweet art. ;)

CJ Kennedy said...

I envy the cappuccino drinkers that get creamy hearts in their cups. The heart "candies" you added are so cute and add to the realism. Happy T Day

Nice way to combine hearts and T day Elizabeth. That is a really cool page. I like how you printed this and colored it. It has a super effect and the heart buttons a nice touches. Hav a great T day. Hugs-Erika

Iris Flavia said...

Not that I like sweets, but... you do not get a treat with your coffee when you have one in a café/restaurant?! Crazy.
Glad you made your own then! Very cute, also how your little easel fits your chairs! A happy T-day to you, dear friend! Thank you for hosting.

Morning Elizabeth, I love your art work, we get hearts on top of our coffee in Spain on Valentine’s Day, also heart shape sugar sachets, I don’t take sugar but I saved them for the GSs!
Those sweets reminded me of some we had as children, not sure if you would have seen them, called Love hearts, I wasn’t fond of them actually but each one had something written on it like, “be mine,” “ love you “etc.
Have a Happy T day

This is a post is full of love and of course a very tempting cup of coffee even for this tea drinker. I love how you have the easel display for the fabulous page, this would also look super framed for the wall.
Happy T day wishes

Fabulous page! The image looks wonderful with the heart shape on top of the coffee, I'm always amazed at the patterns that can be created in the froth 😁. By the way I did think of you when I was trying the stouts, we had lots of dark beers this year and I think you would have enjoyed them too! Happy T Day! Hugs, Jo x

Lovely art piece Elizabeth. I love it. I'll be back later to leave comments for everyone.

This looks like a tasty cup of coffee Elizabeth! Love how you created this! Happy T Day! Hugs, Chrisx psI have the correct link but not the correct heading, sorry!

Barbara said...

Neat image you created and I love your decorative little easel. A side comment, my husband saw that the little candy hearts with messages on them will no longer exist. Say it isn’t so!

Krisha said...

I LOVE your creativity!! This journal page turned out fantastic........you are so clever!!
Happy T-day

This is a dramatic cup of cappuccino At first I thought it was very large then saw it was on a desk top easel. I am always so impressed by the way you make art in a different way and now I also find that you are without colour in your printer. How is that possible. You are ingenious, Elizabeth.

what a nice piece for valentines day !! ♥♥♥

Darla said...

What a clever way to merge various mediums to get that picture of coffee. I do occasionally have a cappuccino when we are out but mostly its the home brew for me.

Wishing you a Happy Valentines Day early - just in case I don't get back here in time. Always thinking of you and the tea gang even if I'm not always online.

Kelly said...

Lovely journal page and great nod to the LOVE of any beverage. That cup of coffee would have mine, for sure :-) I've not been by in forever. I'll try to be here more frequently Hugs & Blessings! Kelly

Sandra Cox said...

I love it! How purrfect for Valentine's.
Hope you're getting your rest.
Hugs,

Jeanie said...

This is really cool. Love the procedural info -- that's really cool!

Neet said...

Love your hearty coffee, or should I say cappuccino. I honestly thought it was hand drawn, you made such a good job of using that soluble crayon to colour around the the heart. I wonder how many Baristas have been practising their 'hearts' in readiness for Friday?
Hugs, Neet xx
