My Heart.. it still believes! Mixed Media Canvas for Scrap Around The World Mid Month reveal.

 Hello friends! 

Here is a canvas I created for the Mid month reveal of Scrap Around The World September mood board by Amy Vroothis.



Some close up's







The September mood board at Scrap Around The World  


Isn't this so beautiful?

My interpretation of the mood board-

 I got inspired by the mood of the mood board and the heat with all those gears.

As children we all are so pure and free of all vices. A child is beautiful inside out. He does what he feels like, speaks his mind and believes in fairy tales and that wonderlands do exist!
As we grow up, our heart starts to learn the worldly traits of jealousy, fear, diplomacy, revenge, anger.. The heart loses all its innocence with time. It is filled with complexities of life and tensions surrounding it. But, even with this 'black' a heart , we do want to loose ourselves into the memories of our childhood, when our world was not so complex, when our heart did not know what anger and jealousy were, when we did not know how to cheat on others. When we could believe that Alice was actually in the wonderland and that Santa did exist :)
The heart may be full of vices today but in some corner it still believes in virtues, in goodness and that somewhere wonderlands might just exist!

                          So this was my Canvas based on September mood board. Hope you liked it..
