happy valentines

 |  February 14, 2008

Happy Valentines Day to all who celebrate it and to those who don’t. We actually don’t, but I did get a cookie fresh from the bakery. yum.

I made this mixed media panel a while ago, but it’s my only heart piece that I’ve ever made. Well, actually I made one other one, but I like the roughness of this one better.

I will be off the computer for about a week. Hope you all had a happy heart day!

    Hope you are enjoying your week. Wonderful texture and "tooth" to this piece. The stitching and bundle of twigs are both such creative touches.

    The natural textures to this and the recycled nature really appeal to me on this! Excellent work here. What is the material on the bottom red there, and on the heart?

    I like it, it is raw.

    Thanks Seth, Dale and Yoli.

    Dale-I used molding paste to create the texture. I love using molding paste as it allows you to create very interesting textures.

    love the heart - and I don't celebrate it either. I think it's ridiculous to have a mandatory/obligatory day to let someone know they are loved. LOL.
