Some days, it's so difficult to be positive. We are constantly bombarded with negative, nasty stories in the media and I find that just wears me down. So I try to choose to be happy about the small things in my life, like this silk paper heart that I made a while ago.
It's easy to make. The wire is placed between two fine sheets of silk paper, which are then glued together. Once it dries, cut out a heart shape. I rubbed over the top with a crayon to emphasise the wire coil. Easy, peasy!
Looking at the heart makes me ridiculously happy. I think I'll make some more!
