There are some symbols in life that have special meaning to me and a heart with wings is certainly one of them.  My dad had heart surgery many years ago after a heart attack.  If you're familiar with that type of surgery, you know that it's important to cough afterwards to clear up your lungs and to prevent pneumonia or any type of infection.  It's also helpful to hold a pillow against your chest when coughing.  While visiting my dad, I went to the mall and ran across a pillow that was a red heart with white wings.  I bought the pillow and took it back to my dad.  He got a kick of having a heart pillow for his heart surgery.  Since then, heart wings have been pretty special to me and I wanted you to know why.

Stampendous has come out with this incredibly fun set called Wings Die Set.  It's neat because you have so many different styles of wings to choose from as well as a few different heart options.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it!  Here's a little canvas I created using the Wings Die Set as the centerpiece.  I hope you enjoy it.

Here's what I used to create this canvas:

Red Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
DecoArt® Media Fluid Acrylics™ - Titan Buff, Pyrrole Red, Quinacridone Magenta, Cobalt Teal Hue
Americana® Acrylic Paint - Whispering Turquoise, True Red, Cherry Red
Archival™ Jet Black Ink Pad in by Ranger®
Copic® Markers in C0, C1
3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives®
Artist's Lofts™ Necessities™ Canvas Boards

This canvas was so easy to create, plenty of finger painting to bring out your inner artsy child for some fun!  Now I just have to decide where to put it!

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you next week with more Stampendous goodness.  Until then, have an awesome weekend.
