There's a machine for that, right?
Art is my bandaid. Heart Mender, my new canvas for Mixed Up Magazine featuring DecoArt products, is proof of that. And, it is the first in a found object assemblage series I have planned called There's a Machine For That.
I haven't had a lot of time to create (or be present on social media lately). The last thirty-something days have been a complete blur. In the midst of planning a wedding, I had to plan a funeral. But, as it is said, life goes on.
When I was maybe six or seven, I began designing crayon-colored machines made of paper and lots of tape. I remember so clearly coloring and cutting out the sort-of-circular coins to give to my parents and grandparents to insert in my paper 'vending' machines. When they put a coin in the slot, I would drop a 'prize' for them to pick up off the floor. Soon, they gave me a puppy... Looking back, my family probably thought I needed something to occupy my time. A lot has changed since way back then, but this remains the same: I still love 'making machines'!
If you want to see a step by step tutorial for making a machine that mends holes in hearts, head over to the Mixed Up Mag Blog and read my post about the Heart Mender. I have also included all the fabulous DecoArt Supplies that were used on this project!
