Hello all and welcome to Words and Pictures! In case you missed the new PaperArtsy stamp release by Darcy you'll find my unusual-for-me projects here, but today I've a sneak peek to tempt you over to The Artistic Stamper Creative Blog for my latest project there. As you'll see from the peeks, normal service has been very much resumed!
A quick warning before we start - not so much a long post warning (though it's one of those too, once you get over to Artistic Stamper and see the actual project)... but a slightly sad post warning. It's a project about love, but it's not a happy ending!
There's plenty of lovey-dovey Valentine's preparation going on Craftyblogland at the moment... but this is from another perspective.
The words in my love note come from the darker side of love, in the form of a "Dear John letter" - a plea to be set free...
It's the break-up letter as a journalling page. Splitting up is, I'm afraid, a frequent side-effect of the pressures to "be romantic" on Valentine's Day... Heck, I've done the deed myself on the 14th February - a long time ago, it's fine!
Sorry to offer up the sadder side of things... but that's what arrived on the journalling page, and I didn't want to get in its way.
I hope you at least like the pages at The Artistic Stamper, and I do wish you all so much love and joy... all year, not just on that day!!
And if you don't mind having to travel to see the full project, I'd like to enter this in the following:
As one of the Love Notes over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
And at Stampendous Impressions where they would also like to see Love Letters for February
At the Stampotique Designers Challenge they're looking for the Heart in your Art
And at Bunny Zoe's Crafts the theme is Hearts and Love
The only whole heart is a broken one, because it lets the light in.
