Caardvarks challenge - RED HEARTS

Today at Caardvarks the Design Team is showcasing the most amazing creations with Red Hearts, as that is the theme of our current challenge.  It's perfect for time to create your Valentine's day cards, or projects!  This time instead of a card I decided to try out my hands at creating a painted canvas collage.  This is something very new to me, but hope it appeals to you.

So, you may ask, how I made this little canvas project?  I used cheap acrylic paint I bought a while back at Michaels...they are by Folkart and Delta.  First I drew my heart shape with pencil and painted it with red paing.  Then I painted my background with the pretty blue and edged it with green.   My beautiful flourish diecut is by Quickutz and is a Scrap-mart Exlusive and I cut it out of chipboard.  The alphabet I used is by Bosskuts and it's called Monogram.  Hope you like it.
