I typed the words in MS Publisher and printed them on a copy machine. The font is one of the free ones from Dafont. Then I used a tape transfer to make them transparent. This method is packing tape over the words. Burnish the paper really well and then soak the taped pieces in warm water. The warm water is the key. The paper just peels off with a little light rubbing.
The hearts are pages from an encyclopedia. They are hanging from some of my stash of fiber.
The background was painted with green paint and then stenciled with yellow, orange and violet paint using a Tim Holtz stencil. The white streaks were made with a credit card and gesso.

FEELINGS In the past 15 years, I have met many people who lived their lives from their hearts. Their stories and their truth did touch my life and help heal my soul. When I was at my lowest, most depressed and anxious, they were there for me. The showed up and they told their stories sharing their experience, strength and hope. They showed me that if I just would follow the program and do the work my life would get better. They were correct. I thank God for them.
Learning to: act instead of react, mind my own business, love myself and most of all give it to God were the hardest things I've ever done. I'm so grateful that I persevered.
