Project: Card - Amour~

In case you cannot tell, I'm a bit of a romanticist. Big Aspirations. Big Dreams. Big Heart. I really loved creating this card. It's adorned with a bit of blingage & for those who know me, understand that I like jewelry - a lot! So, why not put it on a pretty card?! Then, rip it off & put it on a lovely chain to wear! {Yes, the thought crossed my mind!} A few of these cards are so pretty to me that I may have to frame them all in shadow boxes & arrange them on a wall somewhere ... hmmm, I'll need 9 for 3 rows of 3.

I love this very romantic, antique image of the two statuesque people kissing. Like, "Hey? Do ya wanna take the rest of each other's clothes off?" Case-In-Point: nearby cave. Raw human emotion has not evolved much, if at all, since this time frame of the world & is recognizable: passion, tenderness & *amour* {love}! All in one fleeting moment! Beautiful.

I enjoy vintage, ancient-looking prints of centuries past. At times, it is captivating to leaf through books of art & view the humanity & disparity of life throughout the ages through the eyes of the artist. Even online through Paris Atelier's blog, as a wonderful example. I look forward to her scrupulous, intriguing & gorgeous posts. Then, there is Jeanne at Dragonfly Journeys who makes me smile every day with her thoughtfully, sweet cards. And another wonderful card maker, Curt of Curt's World, whose dogs I want! And, Mermaid Lullaby's, whose photographs launch me into dreamland sometimes & I'll often craft while listening to her song list.

This little piece is a collage of thought, inspired by my new friends here - scrapbooking, card making & historical beauty rolled into one! Oh yes, and one more important inspiration!


{Hugs} & Wishing You Lots of Love!

  6. This is beautiful! Hehe I love when it's tempting to take the sparkly off and wear it too! In fact, besides flea markets and my own old jewelry and hair pretties, I sometimes go to Sam Moon and find some of their inexpensive charm bracelets and take them apart or various other items.

    I LOVELOVE the image. Stunning job!
