I am a Happy People so I can post this now...

"There are two sides to my heart one is whole and beautiful and the other is inevitably a little mangled"

I was going through a rough patch so I was only posting happy stuff but now that I am all better I feel safe posting this... I know, I am weird, my mind works in mysterious ways! What can I say, being head fairy will do that to you :)


I think I am more drawn to mixed media than anything else and I just love to learn new techniques. So the background is a canvas I did in a Lisa Bebi class and the heart I made at a Miss Vicky's Retreat. This is by far one of the weirdest things I have ever made and yet I am seriously drawn to it for some reason...

It ROCKS Elena!! Do it, submit it, get published- you can do it!!

Really, it's awesome, deep and real! So cool (the heart is my favorite part)

I TOTALLY agree with Gloria. It is too awesome. You have to send it to Summer Set!!!!! I am totally getting into the whole altered art thing too. We should do it for book club, an Altered Art book for next cycle...or maybe enen a sepperate bookclub for that? What do you think?

I am a new visitor here on your blog, elena. i loved having you in my class a few months back and this piece is very good. i recognize it, although i don't remember the key shape in the background.....but it is very very cool.

what an honorable club you have....and fun.

Elena, this is really beautiful! Your mixed media heart is gorgeous. I love the message, too! You really should submit it (though if I were you, I wouldn't want to part with it!)

It's because you have opened yourself to a whole new world of mixed media---where anything goes and nothing is judged. Welcome to your new home...it's whee you belong. Another proud mixed media artist and teacher. Georgia xo
