How I Love You!

That's the name of my Valentine's Day mixed media collage...

....created in the wee hours of the morning last night (and on Ambien, no less!), and presented as a V-day gift to my sweet husband earlier today.

Vintage sheet music, tag, bingo game pieces, a lovely red glove purchased at yesterdays estate sale, and the perfect vintage Valentine card.

This is only my second real attempt at doing mixed media collages, and I know I have a long way to go to reach the level of friends like JAN, but I'm determined to become a better artist, so watch out, world!  ;-)

I'll be back later this evening with a second post featuring all my wonderful vintage Valentine's for the big party at
Anything Goes Here.

And because there's only so many hours in a day *grin*, my BIG estate sale post will be up sometime tomorrow.

Off now for a night out with my Valentine!

Hi Anne~~I'm a beginner at collages and paper art too--it can be rather addicting! I love your collage-sweet combination of vintage stuff! Just wanted to let you know that I saved and printed out that adorable picture of your mother over old sheet music!! It turned out really sweet and I plan on using it in a collage~Thanks for sharing your mom with me!! Happy Valentines Day junkinjulie

Took last one off cause I spelled something wrong. Spoiled to spell check I guess.=0))

Jan Thomason said...

I'm not sure how much you need me - this collage is really good.
the only thing i question is that i never saw the RED GLOVES yesterday while we were shopping and you only used one in the collage....i can't help but wonder what you're using the other one for.

XOXO, jan
