The Making of our Beatles Valentine

There are several steps in the process of making a Party Face Valentine. First step is gathering ideas from books, the internet, and magazines. Next, comes the sketching followed by an ink drawing, and watercolor painting. The original art is scanned, photos are pulled in and adjustments are made using Photoshop. Each new design takes a day to complete for the art alone. When you order a Party Face invitation, card, or announcement you are purchasing original art to share with your friends and family. It's the perfect way to create excitement for your wedding, party, birth announcement or special greeting.

Happy Valentines Day 2010

My family spent one long lovely snow day making Valentines for our family. We used recycled boxes, papers,clippings from magazine, vintage books, paper doilies, Chinese papers and a deck of playing cards. I could not get enough of making the geisha girls whose kimonos open with a Valentine greeting on the inside. All the beautiful red colors warmed up our snowy day and spread lots of love from Tennessee to New York and in between. Happy Valentines Day 2010!!

Magical Mirror

Mirror - Mirror on the wall - who is the fairest of them all? Hosanna gave me a mirror to collage for her mirror collection. It was fun playing around with the idea of the mirror being a part of the collage. I hope that when Hosanna looks in the mirror she is transformed into a magical world of absolute beauty where any and everything is possible.
