Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 14

Happy Valentine's Day y'all, I made it! 

Inspiration for this one comes from Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist... 

"You know the reason The Beatles made it so big?...'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That's what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche...or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can't hide. Every single successful song of the past fifty years can be traced back to 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand-holding.” 

So here it is The Beatles - I Wanna Hold Your Hand

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 12

Seeing as it's Pancake Day, this is dedicated to all of those with a sweet tooth. 

Can't beat a bit of Fiddy, and this just makes me smile everytime

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 11

This one might be one of my favourites out of all 11 that I have done so far, just because it was so much fun to do. 

Love Jessica Rabbit, the sexy bitch! She is everything that you could wish for, she's got allllll the curves, hair that would give anyone pure envy, legs up to her armpits, that smokey voice and pure attitude. Plus a a man (well, rabbit) that can make her laugh and loves her like crazy. She is one lucky gal..... 

Here she is in all her glory - Jessica Rabbit - Do Right

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 10

This song makes me happy. Like, I can't describe the feeling when I hear those first few notes, jeez, so good! And the lyrics are just lovely too. If I am ever in my car and you see me madly singing along to the radio, 99% sure it will be to this.

Had a mare at the very end rubbing away those annoying little pencil lines and ended up ripping half of the paper up with it. Could have cried. I won't tell anyone if you don't...

Anyways, enjoy this song, and just know it is one of my all time favourites....ever.

Disclosure - Latch

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 9

Wasn't too keen on my first one, so did a second one, but not too keen on that one either! Never mind, will have to get my mojo back tomorrow, for now enjoy a bit of Ri Ri with 'Rudeboy'. Hey, love aint all about the gushy stuff! 

Rihanna - Rudeboy

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 8

This one is for the die hard Dirty Dancing fans, it's the song playing when she says the classic line... 

Plus, we can't talk about love without mentioning Swayze baby. Swoon. Click here for that scene in the film or the link below to hear the whole song sang by the oh so soulful Otis Reading. Happy Friday y'all. 

Otis Reading - Love Man

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 7

Another one that I have recycled from last year, but couldn't leave it out as it's one of my faves. Drake makes my heart melt. Every. Time. And I looooove the song that it is from. Baby you're the best...  

Drake - Best I Ever Had

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 6

Nearly half way there! A dedication to my Mom and Dad, a line from their wedding song, and after nearly 40 years of marriage (which is pretty rare these days!) this one is for them. 

Tried to do is completely typographic and let the lyrics speak for themselves 'cos they are so beautiful. Not too sure whether I have pulled it off on this one, but it was worth an experiment. 

Minnie Riperton - Loving You

Mariah Carey eat your heart out, Minnie nails the high notes.

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 5

Just a lil quick one this morning as am off out tonight. Another one of those songs I had on repeat in my car in the summer just after graduation. Before Kanye went a bit mental. 

Keri Hilson feat Kanye West - Knock You Down

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 4

Seeing as Fall Out Boy have a new single out today, and I have had this one in the back of my mind for quite a while, it kind of felt like today should be the day. 

Fall Out Boy's first album was the only thing I had on cassette tape that I played in my car when I was about 17/18. So the summer Sugar We're Going Down came out, I would play it non stop. Ah the good old emo days.

(And yup, already noticed the you're when it should be a your. And yup, already kicking myself. When I come to touch them all up and pop them up for sale, this will be alllll gramatically correct)

Fall Out Boy - Sugar We're Going Down

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 3 (just!)

So this one was a bit rushed, delayed trains, and pens running dry meant getting the paint out at 10.30pm, not the best. 

Would love to spend hours on this one, really getting it bang on type wise, but this is why it is a challenge, right? 

Anyways ..

Heartbeats 14 Day Challenge - Day 2

Cheated a bit today seeing as it's the boys birthday and we are off to London for the weekend so recycling an oldie but a goodie I did for my good friend Phillippa's British Heart Foundation exhibition last year for Valentines Day, also based around love and all things red.

If anyone wants to buy this print I sold them for £25 with all proceeds going to The British Heart Foundation.

Have already had quite a bit of interest in yesterday's print and the following ones to come (although I haven't done them yet so don't hold your breath!) but am thinking of when I am done, making the prints available to buy with any profit going to The Frenchay Hospital's Plastic Dressings Clinic. Those of you will know me will agree that it is a place very close to my heart with some nurses who work there being very worthy of money towards their clinic. So watch this space!

But for now...
