This Valentine entry was prompted by Art Journal Journey's theme chosen by Hazel which is If Music Be The Food Of Love, Love is in the Air at Try it on Tuesday, and Hearts chosen by Moo-Mania and More this fortnight.
When I first created it, I wasn't too happy with it, but after I scanned it, I liked it much better.
Scraps of vintage sheet music were paired with a heart cut from a left over dictionary page. Some of you might recognize the HUGS banner that came from one of those candy pieces of the same name.
I wanted to partially cover the words on the page as well as the words of the heart, but wanted the concept of the background to show through. So I combined red paint with pearl glaze and mixed them directly on the page.
As I was perusing the page, I saw the words and chose them for my inspiration. I call this Love and Laughing Together. It seems appropriate for Valentine's Day.
One final look to show I used red acrylic paint, pearl glaze, scraps of sheet music, scraps of dictionary pages, scraps from a candy wrapper, and a black Sharpie on this page in my Coll-AH-ge Too altered book.
I'd like to thank Art Journal Journey, Moo-Mania and More, and Try it on Tuesday for these challenges that fit so well with Valentine's Day. Be sure to stop by one or all of these challenge blogs because they all have wonderful art.
I want to thank each of you for visiting, and wish you a delightful Valentine's Day. May you get all the chocolate and hearts you can handle.
