When you have 12 grandchildren…then Valentines is a BIG DEAL! The older ones are always curious as to WHAT I will think up this year.
It's a combination this year…Gelli plate print papers used to fold little envelopes, larger hearts cut from Gelli print papers or Washi tape, Zentangle®, and this year all those little hearts are 3-dimensional as I used molding paste through a heart stencil. On some I colored the molding paste pink first and sometimes I just put it on white and then colored them with iridescent pan pastels (which have to be sprayed later with clear acrylic so they don't wipe off.) But they are worth the extra step!
Everything gets mailed off on Monday! Whew. Another Valentines Day!
