All We Need Is Love @ Paper Issues!!!


 Valentine's is officially one month away, and what a great time to start preparing for the love!  Paper Issues' newest theme is "All We Need Is Love."  From now thru  February 14 we will be celebrating the upcoming holiday by featuring some "sweet" creations made by you!  Be sure to link up your images and share the love!  :)

To get your creative juices flowing, I would like to share with you some of my Valentine creations...

"Wings of Love" (pictured above) has to be one of my favorite mosaic creations I have made to date.  I made it a few years ago and thought I would share it with all of you!  Basically what initially inspired it was the very ornate embossed heart in the center.  It is the lid of an old ceramic jewelry box...one of my many treasured estate sale finds.  I created the wings from a vintage vase.  The background paper is from Paper Mojo.  The damask aqua & copper were the perfect dramatic backdrop.  Don't you agree?

 Also, here are two of some of my rather intricate Valentines I created this past year.  The XOXO card was created for a Valentine Swap.  The red heart on the wings is actually a functioning heart lock.  Isn't it the cutest?  The LOVE card I made for my husband.  You are probably wondering why I added the kelly green?  He loves all things Irish, and I thought it would add a nice personal touch.  :)
I hope to create lots of Valentines sweets to share with you over the next month.  Won't you share your sweets with us?  http://www.paperisssues.blogspot.com/

Thanks for stopping by!
