Promises promises…

My husband and I celebrate our 35th anniversary this coming week and I guess that is why Valentine’s Day is no big deal to me (that and the fact that I should stay away from chocolate and our cat eats flowers and doesn’t keep them down).

Anyway, in keeping with the spirit of LOVE, I thought I would play a little with hearts. It started as a mono print and ending with questionable results but as always it was fun experimenting. For the last print pictured below I just stuck the contact paper hearts onto the plexi, rolled the paint covered brayer over them and placed the fabric on it. I’m sure if I had used the Gelli Arts print plate the results would have been better.
