Here is the canvas I made for our exchange student from Finland. I made this art to hang over her bed in her bedroom. I chose this saying because I believe it is true that your home is wherever your heart may be. So in our student Maria’s case, a piece of her heart is probably in Finland and soon, as she becomes more comfortable, a piece of her heart will be here in Kansas with us.
I chose a bright green for the canvas and bright pink and purple so it would be youthful and fun.
The heart represents the world and on the east side is a house in Finland. It is blue made from snowflake paper and there are mountains in behind (they are hard to see) I also did snowflakes falling from the sky.
On the west side is a home in the United States in red, white and blue. This house is special; it has a Canadian Maple Leaf on the roof!! The house stands in the tall prairies grasses and the hot sun shines down.
The two homes are joined by a banner of American style flags that welcome our Finnish student to the United Kansas.
I covered the large heart in smaller hearts and I love the texture that if brings!
Have a wonderful week-end!
