C is for... Corazón

Good morning!

We continue with the altered dictionary thank sto The Craft Barn's Alpha Challenge... The new letter is "C"... and the word that I've chose is "Corazón", which, of course, means heart (too many hearts lately!!!)

The page that I made:

I've been inspired by one of my old favourite songs, "Corazón Partío" by Alejandro Sanz. A song that means many, many things to me, so preparing this page while listening to the song again and again (and realising that I still remember the words after so many years) was really therapeutic... I so love this Alpha Challenge!

So first I prepared a small heart on a post-it to cover and protect the definition of "Corazón". I added gesso on my page and the I used an A4 paper to make the large heart. I used the negative as stencil and used my red mist. I let it dry, then used pencil for the hearts' outlines, which I smudged with my figures. Finally I wrote the lyrics of the song all over the page.

And here's the song in case you are curious:

So come over at The Craft Barn blog to see the other participations and play... it is therapeutic!

REally neat! Love the feathered edges of the large red heart, and the book pages as your background.
