will you be my .v.a.l.e.n.t.i.n.e. {?}

so, i know it's a little early to be posting Valentines Day work - but i just can't help myself. I am in love with Valentine's Day - the colors - the feelings - the pretty flowers - the mushy movies - everything that has to do with *love*, half of my inspiration for creating art work for this years Valentines Day was the special edition of somerset 2009 called "in love." all the publications were gorgeous photos of different pages that a few VERY talented women did for a round robin. the inspiration that each page gave me was just unexplainable. i highly recommend buying that book - i just cant explain the beauty - it just has to be seen....

anyways - as i was saying before, i started working on some Valentines projects- one being a swap that i am participating in on . here are a few photos of the end results --

also - i started up an art journal -- just for random everyday artwork that i might be too afraid to put on a layout or canvas - or just to basically escape and have the freedom to do whatever i want to do in it. heres a few photos so far --

(this is the front cover)

(this image was inspired by somersets valentine special publication titled *in love* i lifted the quote off of one of the very and many talented artists in that book.
