I have been making these mixed media "hearts" paintings for a good few years now - in fact the first thing I ever sold on Etsy was one of these! Recently I have been asked several times to personalize them e.g. adding initials, dates etc to the hearts. As a result I've decided that a good rule is to give the customer what they want, and I'm now offering these as my first ever custom paintings in my etsy shop! The hearts are collaged from various papers - I often re-cycle old artwork or pages from my sketchbooks. The canvas is then painted and I often use other media too - colored pencil, ink etc. With my custom listing you can choose your own color scheme (e.g. the wedding colors may be nice for a wedding gift, or you could match a room's decor for a house-warming gift). One or more of the hearts can also be personalized with initials and/or a special date. These would make an original and personal gift for weddings, engagements, birthdays, anniversaries, or any special occasion!
