Collage Obsession Challenge: Old Dark House

I can have a tendency to go "dark" at any chance I get but decided to do something different with this one.

Valentine Ornaments

I created these ornaments to hang on my "holiday tree" which is now decorated for Valentine's Day but you can hang these anywhere...from drawer knobs to door knobs to anything else you think of.


I cut hearts from cardboard and painted them.

I then added a pearlescent sheen to the hearts using Perfect Pearls.

I then glued on the heart-shaped pictures and used red glitter glue to add dots around the picture. It was finished off by making a hole at the top and tying ribbon and black fiber-yarn through it to hang.

Improvise on this idea by using love quotes, vintage pics, or anything to your heart's desire. ;) If you create your own version of a valentine ornament, comment and add a link to your blog so I can come see your creations!

Valentine Altered Trading Block

I recently participated in an Altered Trading Block(ATB) swap that was arranged by Aileen of Aileen’s Musings.

The first block I created featured the writing of E.E. Cummings on it.
