Nostalgic Valentine

Saturday, February 6, 2016



There's a lotta love in blogland!  Seems like everyone is getting ready for Valentine's Day which is right around the corner.

I was definitely inspired by Tim Holtz tonight.  My nostalgic tag has layers of  ink and stenciling.  The words are a little hard to see ("Be Mine" and "Wonderful") which were stenciled with gold paste.  I created the flower heart by punching out small flowers from an aged script pattern paper.  The photo is from Tim Holtz photobooth photos - I was tempted to use a real one of my parents , but was afraid I might damage it and the few old black and white photos I have are so treasured.


Thanks to these challenges for allowing me to share:
