Valentine's Day... Blah. There's only so much pink and red and cuteness I can handle. I made something for the broken-hearted. The ones that cringe at those deplorable commercials... "diamonds mean love", and "tell her you love her with a gift you spent your entire paycheck on and will therefore go into debt and take years to dig out" Now that's real love. HA! What a marketing strategy.
I was inspired by this website I came across about a week ago, Vintage with Laces. I know it's not as fabulous as hers, but I absolutely love it. And that's what's important, right? It's the first time I flipped the canvas around and worked on the BACK of the canvas, shadowbox-like. I got out every single textured foofy thing I found, laces, doilies, canvas, cheesecloth, burlap, STUFF... Yeh, it's over the top and busy but so what. It's puuurty. Have a Valentine's Day everyone. (By the way, it was a good movie. It would have been better if it hadn't "skipped over the damaged parts" about 8 times throughout the movie! At least I don't know what I missed.)
(And yes. I know I skipped the word HAPPY. I wish you a happy day every day, not just on Valentine's Day.)
