Wooden Valentine Collage

I am training myself to work on seasonal artwork well in advance so I can be ready to produce at the right times during the year. Here is my first offering for Valentines Day.

I salvaged this little heart and covered it in various decorative and hand-decorated papers, clipart and pieces of ribbon yarn. I used white and gold paint pens to enhance it. The sides and back are decoratively painted. I adhered 2 glitter hearts cut from old greeting cards, which adds just the right amount of sparkle. It already had 2 holes so I strung pink wire through them and added bead embellishments. Finally I tied pink and red ribbon to one side.

This lovely piece of art marks a milestone for me in which I have been able to bring many elements and art processes together. I am finding my place in collage and altered art.
