Valentine Before and After

I found two small metal hearts like this one at a recent sale...not vintage, but they had potential and the price was right.

They were transformed in my (freshly organized) studio...I threw around some old photos, vintage flowers & buttons, glitter & wrapping paper...and Voila!


Which one do you like best?

The first one is my favorite of the two. They are both very sweet. I hope it is possible to learn to be creative because I would love to be able to create something like your hearts.

Every once in awhile I can create something like these but it takes a special eye to look at a metal heart and turn it into these darling vignettes. You did good, girl--they are both darlin'!
