Happy Colors

This morning I was in the mood to bust out the paints!  I had cut the Pie Chart Heart (Design ID #219822) from Paige Taylor Evans & Silhouette earlier in the week and wanted to use it as well!  I drew out some of my favorite paint brushes and used my watercolor palette to color them in.  I traced around a jar I had and then cut a slit beneath the top band of the jar and slid the brushes in, I added a piece of vellum on top and stitched around it with my sewing machine so it would look the brushes were “behind” glass.

For the background I penciled in the cut spaces where I wanted the pie chart heart to be and painted the spaces before glueing down the cut file.  I then added stitching all around the heart.  Last step was to assemble all the pieces and add the Heart Word Happy (Design ID #216681) for a title with the colors chipboard from Take Me Away ( I added a little bit of paint to the chipboard as well).  I sprinkled on some yellow star sequins and used some pretty star die cuts from Turn the Page for the finishing touch!!  Love how it turned out and it made me happy to make it!
