Soon it will be February and most of you will know what the big celebration is for that month. I have never really been a big fan of Valentine’s Day. It can make one feel somewhat inadequate if there is no significant other to celebrate with. My daughter came up with the ingenious idea of celebrating with her girlfriends and calling it ‘Galentine’s Day’!
Although I now have a significant other to celebrate with, we don’t. We tend to have a nice meal at home and stay in with the dogs. However, there are those out there who are less cynical than I am and love to celebrate Valentine’s Day. For you, I have made a few collages.
Lovestruck – 4×4 inches on 140lb watercolor paper.Pucker UP – 4×4 inches on 140lb watercolor paperHugs and Kisses, 4×4 inches on 140lb watercolor paper
I have been working on these over the last few days. They are now ready to be varnished, After the varnish has dried, I will need to flatten them out before I can mount and matt them to A4 size.
I have enjoyed making these little collages even though they are time consuming. Each layer has to dry before adding the next and the paper curls in a different way each time. I took the names from the paint color samples. Sometimes one doesn’t need to look that far for inspiration. I would have liked to make more, but I won’t have enough time if I want to get them onto Etsy by the 1st of February.
Thanks for stopping by!
