Love You More!

My best friend, Brenda ( and I have always said "I love you" with the response of "I love you more!" My grandson, Logan and I use this phrasing also.  Logan just turned eight years old and I got a little creative with his presents. I wanted a special gift tag just for him so I got to thinking.

Using a scrap of watercolor paper, I drew a heart with a black Sharpie and wrote the words "Love You More" inside the heart. I brushed a nice transparent blue water color over the heart and and bright yellow on the outside of the heart and let the paint bleed together. Once it was dry, I spattered some white guache over the entire piece. I punched a hole in the corner and attached it to the wrapped package with some green rug yarn. The package is wrapped in simple bright green tissue paper.

Logan loved it! And I noticed his momma was saving it with a few other momentos she will save in his "Memory Box." A tiny scrap of paper and a bit of watercolor along with a few minutes of time has become a memory for life!
