Pastel Splattered Hearts for Valentines

 

Valentine conversation hearts add so much color to the month of February! Inspired by the bins of Valentine candy I saw at the grocery store I  made some pastel splattered  hearts for Valentines Day. They can be used to make cards, garlands or for other valentine creations.Inspiration for splattered pastel valentine hearts-myflowerjournal

  1. I love the spontaneity of those hearts! And doing your own color hearts on watercolor paper makes it all more ‘real’ and artistic.
