Ending up the Valentine Week
with sharing some of the things
hanging out from a Creative Haven
event this week.
I used a heart gift from my friend Bonnie
as the center focus for this mixed media piece.
Packing material makes a great
base overlay on a flat canvas.
Three of these canvas projects
were made for each of my daughters.A Creative Haven project from 6 years ago-
the circle medallion.
Grade school Valentines.
So, I have officially been getting
these out of a vintage candy box
and looking at the names on the back
and praying for these long-time friends
for fifty years now.
Sometimes a Valentine
mixed media project
is not about red and pink.
O my soul-
Sometimes it is a vintage chicken feeder
to hold small floral plates and a cache of hearts.
in a seed pack holder.
So I am reminded-
Our hearts take hold on Thee.
I pray thee dear Lord Jesus,
my heart to keep and train.
that I thy holy temple,
from youth to age remain.
