Art Hearts for Haiti

When I saw this project over on Laure Ferlita's blog I knew I wanted to participate. It is such a great idea and a creative way to help with the relief efforts in Haiti. You can click on the image above to find out more about this project and how you can participate.
I followed the professor's lead and made a page of ATC sized hearts (2.5 x 3.5 inches) using Neocolor II and colored pencil. I drew in my heart shapes and colored the cards with the Neocolor II water soluble crayons. I then washed them with water and then gave them a spritz with a water sprayer to allow the colors to spread and bleed into each other. After they dried I went back in with colored pencil to further define some of the shapes and edges.
This is the one I have chosen to send to Laure.
With both of her parents participating, Kiddo had to get in on the act and make some heart art cards herself.
I especially liked this one because really, love is all you need.

You are an Art Hearts for Haiti family! I love all of your little cards, Ann, but my heart (teehee) goes to the blue one. Gorgeous colors! You do indeed have an artist child too, but then how could the two of you not? Your mini artist did a fabulous job, and you are right. All you need is love.

Those hearts are all lovely. I like the way the colors feathered and bled. It's very soft, the way I imagine love to be.

Ann, your heart is lovely, so soft and pastel!

Message to Kiddo: Bravo for creating your own heart with your parents. You definitely have some art style of your own, and very big generous heart as well! I especially love the heart with lots of love all around it.
