Emily's Art Journal Week 6

Very fitting.......the theme of LOVE on St. Valentines week!!

Now, of course, I had to use a pic of Tony for this so I converted the photo into a sketched look and printed it on watercolour paper. I then painted a big heart round it and cut it out to stick on the card. It's the same photo that I've used in my blog header......one of my faves of him!

The reverse reads: "You will always be my soul mate and my best friend" and that is so true. We have had our ups and downs in life as everyone does but we have now completely relaxed with each other and enjoy each other's company so much. (I should hope so after 20 years LOL)!































Another week that I have thoroughly enjoyed doing these challenges........thanks Emily!!!

Ciao for now peeps

I'm really liking how some of the poeple doing Deck of Me used the king of hearts! I didn't even THINK of that, or I would have too! LOL Great one. I really like it!

Did you use stickers for the "best friend" part? I really like this one. I hadn't thought of the King of Hearts either. Very creative. And you must have an incredible camera to get such close close-ups.
