Valentines Day Collage Freebie!

When I was young my favorite subject in school was art. So when Valentine's day rolled around every year I couldn't wait to decorate my Valentine's box, create my valentines and eat those wonderful little hearts with positive messages.


Today, many many years after leaving school, art is still my favorite subject, and I still love those positive messages (although I have to admit, now I prefer dark chocolate to candy hearts). I traded out the modge podge for an archival gel medium, but the scissors, paper cutting and ripping remain. Really, I am still cutting and pasting, only slightly more elevated!


So, feeling nostalgic for those bygone days, I created this collage heart, filled with positive thoughts, whimsy, rich textures and objects. I loved playing with the image of heart alive with positive energy! I also wanted to express how deeply appreciative I am for all the wonderful people I have met in my artistic journey so far. You make my heart burst with joy! Many of you have purchased my art, supported my career while I was at Aviles Gallery, and follow me on social media. I am posting this Valentine image free for you to use as a card or to print to display in your home for your own enjoyment.


I hope you will consider adding your email to subscribe to my blog posts (which will be a bit more regular from now on), so you can get updates on where you can see my art (I"ll be in Amelia Island in April..but that's my next post), learn more about me and my collaging, and get more freebies and special offers!


I hope you have a wonderful day,

Gina
