My Valentine.....

I love to do this type of "funky" art~I love the vintage pieces incorporated into the "valentine".
When I go "junk'n" this is the type of  things I look for.  Broken jewelry with beads or pearls, chandelier crystals, old trims ( hard to come by) and old pearl buttons~I'll buy them every time.
The base of the piece is a Basic Grey book plate.  You can still find them in clearance places.  I used Jenni Bowlin pattern paper and 7Gypsies ephemera.  If you didn't have the book plate, you could build off of chipboard or an old graphic piece.  The sky is the limit ~ if you can think it up, then try it!!!
The treadmill is calling my name ~ so see you tomorrow for Try it Tuesday!!
