Simplicity


This painted wooden heart is my submission for this week's Inspiration Avenue Challenge - "Simplicity". 

Simplicity, I've found, does not come easily to me. I really really wanted to add colour/pattern/buttons/something! But I managed to restrain myself. So far! :)

This heart is now for sale in my etsy shop, and you can see more simply lovely work here 

Don't forget, if you take part in one of our challenges this month you will be entered into the draw to win a gorgeous set of 5 flower postcards from Lisa of The Wright Stuff

    I know what you mean tho it's always so tempting to add just a little embellishment! Why do we do that I wonder? LOL! Well done for being so restrained!

  14. Your are right about that. It is very hard to "do simple". Your heart is a nice submission and perfect fit for this theme.

  15. It is flawless, Angie!
    I think that is why simplicity is so hard for me...I can't just plop something else dow and act like I meant to do it!
    And you did it in white and black.
    Wait. Did you say that was for sale?
    Ciao, oxo
