But it could be. I've known a few unique souls who would delight in receiving something like this as a token of affection. This, though, is a piece created for an upcoming art fundraiser. I guess it turned out this way because of the excessive bombardment of heart-shaped romantic advertising?
This is the way I'd attack my art journal pages if I could, but for some reason I can't. At least not consistently. I can do it for altered book swaps and other such projects intended for others, but it seems somehow selfish and wasteful to put so much effort into a private journal page destined for my eyes only. That's a little sad, so I'm going to work on myself. As soon as I finish all these art pieces destined for public consumption.
