Love conquers all… All you need is Love… Love is Blind… Love is unselfish… Love does not judge… Love is crazy, mad, wonderful… Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
In our case Love is creative!! Today I decided to keep up with my artist of this month, my dear Christi Friesen and I will prompt you all to visit the Christi’s Creative Neighborhood group on Facebook and enjoy the most creative Heart Attack ever!! So many talented creators, artists, makers! All of this inspiration and love for polymer!
Back in The Circle (the paid membership side of the Neighborhood) the theme of February is “All You Need is Love” and so Christi decided she would announce a contest!
And the contest goes like this: Go to the Neighborhood (on FB) and post a picture of any kind of HEART ART made by any kind of material and at the end of the month THREE random lucky ones will win one of Christi’s texture sheets named ‘HeartZ‘!!
So go post your own image on the page of Christi’s Creative Neighborhood group on Facebook and add the #heartArt. Using the # hashtag helps others find your work!
Here is a small sample of some of the posts and their creators!!
Firstly some of Christi’s own creations! Artful and whimsical, baroque and steampunk, romantic and stylish however you call them they are but just beautiful! I am the proud owner of two of her hearts and I adore them!!
How about these gorgeous heart pendants, made of resin by Leila Bidler? It is a series of six in rainbow colours. Don’t they look fantastic?
Don’t tell me there is someone of you polymer clayers out there that doesn’t love the mokume gane technique! This is Dani Rapinett of The Whimsical Bead all the way from “down under” with these loving beads in purple pink and gold!
This colourful translucent trio is the creation of the Oklahoma based Michele Hinchey. Her favorite quote is about love of course!
“Love look not with the eyes but with the mind and therefor is winged Cupid painted blind” Shakespeare
On the other hand, Lilian George makes voodoo dolls from recycled materials called “Gnarfles” and they also inspire her line of valentine cards! Now tell me how cute are these little dudes?
Rita Hammock calls this piece ‘Where do broken hearts go, Well they go over the rainbow’ it is worked with wool strips. She worked on this piece while working through her grief over the terrible event of ‘The Pulse’ nightclub shooting.
Now let’s get real with the work of Amy K Hucks, literally!
She made this hand sculpted heart from pictures. It was made for a hard surgeon… of course!
How about some wall art?
This is the work of the italian Ilenia Moreni!
With a bit of ‘love and devotion’, polymer clay, some Swellegant, linen fabric and brass chains this heart is ready!!
She is also a fellow blogger!
And here is where I am going to put an end to this post! Any more hearts and I will get a #HeartArt Attack! 🙂 Now go to Christi’s Creative Neighborhood group and get your own!
Until the next time, be good to one another!
