28 VALENTINES TO MAKE...10 DOWN, 18 TO GO!

Greetings, dear reader!

As I mentioned in my last post, my mojo has fallen and can't get up...or so it seems. However, in a last ditch effort to find SOMETHING creative in myself I attended a Crop For Missions last weekend and did (somehow) manage to eek out a few valentines.



(Displayed here on a vintage piece of velvet just purchased for...yes, you guessed it...tattered roses! I'll let you know how they turn out!)



I know, I know...it's COWBOYS. Yet AGAIN! I just can't get my fill of these sweet v-intage little boy and girl images!


I used three colors of glitter cardstock: Red, Aqua and Pink. I used stamps, rub-ons, fabric, paper embellies, glittery silver pipe cleaners, and lots of chocolate-colored chalk to ink the edges and "grunge" the little images. (And here's a tip for those of you who prefer your images look vintage instead of printed...print on ivory colored cardstock instead of white. It makes the colors appear richer and more vibrant. I also used textured cardstock which makes the images appear worn in places...not sure why?!?!)









I have two more; still incomplete...pics when they are finished. I borrowed a camera from a friend, so I thought I'd get these photographed while the ability to do so was afforded me. :-)

More soon...what are YOU working on?

I'm working on my Valentines too.....one is for you! Hopefully I'll get them finished and in the mail by this weekend. For someone with no mojo Miss Paula...you've done a heck of a cute job on these. If you need some extra time...let mine be the last one you send. I understand how that goes.
