Well, I am pretty happy with the ones I made this year even though there were only a couple.
The first one is called "blue valentine"
She measures about 18" in height and is made of crepe paper, lace, vintage trade card, trim, buttons and some glitter.

I love the color combination of pink and black, so I decided to make these next two with that color combination in mind...
The cone I made with fancy felted paper. It is quite large measures approx. 18" in height. I trimmed the top with these black and pink polka dot napkins I had. Then I layered on top of that ruffled and shredded crepe and vintage tinsel garland. To each side I added a pink feathered bird. I made the Marie doll from a digital altered art image and pipe cleaners, crepe paper and feathers.
This heart was also inspired by the pink and black color theme.
I used a felt pink heart, and trimmed it with some ribbon and ruffled black and white polka dot crepe paper. I added spray pick flowers and a pink feathered bird. I used a cameo and backed it with layered & ruffled crepe paper. On the other side of the heat I added vintage sheet music and silk rose.
The box I actually made some time ago, but it seemed so fitting to add it to my valentine collection this year because of the themed sheet music I used. In addition, I added a frozen Charlotte head and ruffled layers of crepe paper, and yes as always..some glitter!!!!
Thank you for stopping by. I would love to hear from you!!! I hope you enjoyed my 2011 valentines as much as I enjoyed making them!!!
