I like Valentine's Day. It's a cheerful pick-me-up in the middle of winter. For this project I started with a base of heavy watercolor paper and applied acrylic paints for the background. For depth, I stamped with bubble wrap using white gesso, then using a sewing machine zig-zag stitched around a small watercolor heart painted on canvas with hand stitching. The lettering is flattened wire, and the small watercolor pencil hearts were cut from discarded book pages. approx. 5"x7".
