"It's cool to be nice to everyone!" "being mean does not make you cool(er)" "Choose to be cool"
"Spread love around"
This is my anti-bullying art piece for the next show I am going to enter. I have not settled on a hanger for it yet...just used what was handy to see it on the wall. The message is clear...good for anyone, but especially for teens and young kids don't you agree?
It could also be called "Plant A Seed. Teach Acceptance. Save a Life!"
It's free motion sewing for the words and trim on off white canvas fabric with red thread; a little acrylic bright pink paint brushed on; trimmed in up-cycled lace...you see I do use what I find at garage sales and thrift stores including the strings of beads that string one heart to the other through the white grommets.
The backs have XOXO free motion sewn on them in red and more pink paint.
What I did on my day off (Friday)!
Enjoy your weekend. (from garage sales or thrift store: grommets, lace, beads, canvas fabric)
