Vintage Valentine
Old Valentines bring back such special memories! They take me back to elementary school, and all the excitement of that special day.

This was a fun little project. I used a frame I had on hand. After I painted it white, then I began building the collage using vintage valentines, ribbon, a heart button, a sheet of scrapbook paper, and a few extra jewels to spiff it up. I did not put the glass in, because I simply love the 3-D tactile effect.
