Grungy, rusty Valentine

Hi Everybody!

Happy Valentine's Day!

To celebrate the day I made 2 hybrid pages, which I am linking to Art Journal Journey, if music be the food of love, and Moo Mania and More, hearts.
My grungy wall has been used for the background of both pages.
Here I have added rusty roses, my heart and my window-sill cherub.


For the second page I used an image from Dezinaworld, combined with my grungy wall and rusty heart.

We had a cold and frosty night followed by a wonderful sky in the early morning:

Anr the sunrise was wonderful

Here I took  photos of the sunrise reflected in one of my pictures:

Have  a great day you all,
take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  9. Wonderful pages Valerie-what a find the rusty wall was I can see it will appear often and deservedly so.

    Love the photographs with the great skies that seem to appear when the weather is really cold. I think it is supposed to be on the way here but not too back just at the moment. Such an amazing idea to take pictures of the reflection on your pictures. I often think that the shapes on our white walls deserve to have a photograph taken then I forget to do it.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  10. Its good to see the rusty wall again, it is a fantastic background for these awesome pages. Lovely photos of your sky's as well.

  13. Wonderful collage. Got to love your grungy wall, I bet it comes in handy for lots of stuff. Our days look pretty similar, right now we are having -18 °C and the high will be -8 - brrrh- but it sure makes for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Happy Valentine's Day, Valerie.

  14. Happy Valentines Day Valerie :) Love how you are using your fab grungy wall - two fantastic pieces today with it and great quotes!
    Your skies are amazing - love the reflection you got too.

  15. Lovely St. Valentine's Day piece--that wall made a fantastic background! Beautiful sunrise, too. We are are -2 here today...brrr!

  16. Both of your rusty Valentine pieces of art are terrific. The background is wonderful and I know can be used on so many projects. Love yourself as well as others. Happy Valentines Day.
    Love hugs,

  17. Gorgeous pages, Valerie. that wall is a keeper.

  18. 2 richtig schöne Seiten wieder in warmen Farben!
    Zuerst dachte ich an eine Fotomontage bei dem fliegenden Vogel vor dem roten Himmel, aber du hast ihn wohl tatsächlich so fotografiert. Klasse!
    Lieben Gruß von Ulrike

  19. What lovely pages with your rusty wall! The first one is stunning, especialy the angel, and I love the composition of the second one. Beautiful skies photos!
    Hugs, Mar

  20. ❤❤ HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY dear dear Valerie. ❤❤ You bring so much joy and love into my life through your wondrous creations - thanks bunches and bunches.

    I am so far behind typing to you but please know... I read every word, every day and so enjoy every one of your designs.

    Right now, I am just in love with your grungy wall. That is just such an incredible photo and you are using it to all it's glory - so creatively. I love both of these - especially the little cherub with the rusty hearts. And both sentiments are so true too!!! And your face on the wall yesterday was wonderful and so different looking from the same face on a different background the day before. They were both neat but I just loved your face on the grungy wall best!!

    Incredible sunrises - wow. One was so bright it's blinding! And capturing the birds in the foreground... you are just such a great photographer. And that last picture of the sunset through the picture is just outstanding. You never cease to amaze me.

    Sending you ❤❤ - on this special love day and always. XX j.

  21. I like the grungy rusted flowers peeking through. Even you photos look cold. -23C here this morning and it didn't get above -12C all day. That's about as cold as we get. xox

  22. Fabulous pages Valerie! I love your sunrise photos - morning light has such beauty! Happy valentines day! Hugs, Chrisx

  23. Your first piece as always is really good. I have to tell you and it came as quite a surprise to me. I like the second one the best. It tells me that there is an unsolved mystery ...

  24. Love your use of grunge and your cherub. The way you modified the original is so interesting. They are all great, and I really like the main coloration. The gears and the man is really creative and I love the message. You really did a great job with these. genie
