Pebble Heart Canvases


Pebble HeartDuring my mahoooosive craftroom clear out last Sunday/Monday I found a tin of  small pebbles that I had collected on the Dukes and my summer holiday in Brixham last year …..
Pebble Heart Canvas.I also found the packs of two  5” x 5” canvases (£1.99) that my sister bought in bulk for me last year, as canvas squares of this size are quite hard to find …… I then decided it was about time that I did what I had originally intended to do with them all…….
Pebble Heart CanvasI made a template heart and drew round it as lightly as I could with pencil.  Then I went over the pencil mark with a line of strong PVA glue, placing the small pebbles on top.  I didn’t plan the placing of the pebbles …. I just went with the flow.  ….. I have a few more to make …. and then intend to give them, instead of a Christmas card, to some of the special people in my life who have helped me in the past few weeks.

And … do you remember this photo I took when we were on our Sun £9.50 holiday in Dawlish Warren at Easter and I noticed a heart shaped pebble just at the edge of the groin … ?????

Well,  I found that too and I have made a canvas of my own!

those are fab and will mean a lot to who ever gets them as it like giving them a small part of the duke and you dont forget to use the E600 glue it will be perfect for this kind of project as its very strong and you just need a dab with a cocktail stick big love marc

What a fabulous thought and I'm sure they will be much appreciated by your special folk.

Glad you kept something for yourself - that heart-shaped stone is lovely.

This is such a great idea Helen, I have smaller canvases with a collection of small bits of polished glass, tiny shells and tiny pebbles that I could use, now where did I put them? I need to get my craft room organised like your's!! :S

Now what would the heart look like all filled in?? Mmmmm, I wonder?

Thanks for the inspiration!

Big hugs
Roni :o) xox
