I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day yesterday!
Valentine’s Day is extra special to me because my husband proposed to me on V-day 12 years ago. 🙂
I wanted to make something special for my husband and daughter and so I decided to try out this lattice style heart design.
I came across and really love ШАРОВЕДАВ which when I put it in Google translate came out to SHAROVEDAV. It is a Belarusian language.
The language refers to Belarus, or “officially the Republic of Belarus, which is a country in Eastern Europe bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Its capital is Minsk.”
Quoting from Wikipedia=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belarus.
How neat that balloons can educate and introduce people to whole new countries and peoples!? Through my own ignorance, I had never before heard of his country or of this language.
I really love his work and will be replicating and reviewing a lot of his designs.
He has a YouTube tutorial for how to make this lattice style heart, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4JW3y3F-zY.
I decided I wanted to make a little scene using this lattice heart as the backdrop. I made a cupid in the clouds aiming his love arrow. I also made another cloud bundle with some hearts just to add some balance.
I made my heart bigger by altering the number of squares I made for this heart. I added somewhere between 6 to 10 more squares.
Here is what I came up with as a result.
