. . . Taking a large sheet of handmade paper I cut it into pieces, and fashioned a small book out of them. Then I tied the bundle together for a rustic look. I added a bit of romance with a watercolor heart, and on the other side, a small photo copy of one of my favorite antique prints.
I then reached for some gold wire and paper leaves. I've always longed to have a gold laurel wreath. The kind you see in the museums. Well, that probably won't be happening any time soon, so I decided to make a faux wreath. Definitely not up to the standards of the Greeks, but it still brings a smile to my lips.
