Love & Romance

Ah, love...
Isn't it romantic?
Merely to be young on such a night as this?
Isn't it romantic?
Every note that's sung is like a lover's kiss
Sweet symbols in the moonlight,
Do you mean that I will fall in love, per chance?
Isn't it romance?

Love creates such a cluster of emotions in us, and what better way to express that than with an artistic collage!  And yay, my daylight light bulbs were delivered just in time, so the color rending of the photos is right on. J

A Few Quick Details:
  • The base on this collage is a 12"x12" pressed tin tile that I painted red and distressed with black antiquing gel and steel wool.
  • "LOVE" was cut from recycled cardboard using my Cricut, then painted and glittered. The L is positioned atop a 7 Gypsies journaling card that has been distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a water pen. The O is accented with a felt heart sticker.
  • The romantic couple image is "framed" by a K&Co paper picture frame and accented with a rhinestone heart. A Tim Holtz adage ticket and flower image adorn the frame.
  • In addition to the adage ticket, I used several other Tim Holtz embellishments in the collage along with wide satin ribbon and silk flowers
