Love Is In The Air

A romantic lady dreaming of her Valentine, created on a wet and windy evening in Brighton. Though the forecast is for heavy snow, it is pouring with rain and blowing a bit of a gale outside. So, I snuggled up and created this. Coloured in Promarkers and lots of added black and silver grey glitter to highlight the details. The heart was stamped using part of a forest stamp (!) and then glossy accented and glittered.
The lady came from the huge box of images that my daughter uses to create collages (her favourite art form) She has collected magazine clippings etc for the last 3 years. Even junk mail gets scoured for suitable bits 'n' bobs for collaging! Sorry I cannot be more specific about the lovely Regency lady.
