I had two special gifts to make. One was for my friend who generously gave me an awesome sewing machine! Thanks Deanna! The other was for Alec. I promised him at least a year ago that I would make some wall art just for him because one of his favorite things was a collage I had made a long time ago. I went for basically the same concept on the two paintings I made, but I made Alec's painting have some black texture kind of like wood grain just by streaking the brush. I made the heart 3-d by painting it on with Spackle and then covering it with regular paint. I love how they turned out!
