Art Makes my Heart Beat...

Lately my schedule has been overwhelming. When this happens I know that it is time for some art therapy.
So I make up a project that involves my hands in a very tactile way. A project where I have to really get my hands into the medium in order to create what I have in mind. Like modeling papier mache hearts, for instance.

Recipe: white glue + water (1 to 1 ratio), stirred well; plus torn tissue paper. And the fun begins!

Hot tip: It is a good idea to tear a bunch of tissue paper or soft paper before beginning the process. Not so easy to tear strips after your hands are all sticky. Lesson well learned!
