Valentines

I was able to finish my Valentines this weekend. I suggested to my art group that I might make some to hand out at our next meeting. They were not at all what I had in mind when I made this suggestion, but I am happy with the way they turned out. I used acrylic, graphite, gold embossing papers, vintage photographs, rubber stamped text,,,,and they are all machine stitched. I left the little strings on the bottom because I like the textural feel of them. (click on the photo to see large version)

The valentines are lovely.

I love bunny slippers as well, and have used them often in figurative drawings over ten years ago, but never tire of them
