Valentine's Fun

I have to admit,  I think Valentine's Day is a silly holiday.  I'm not much of a romantic and would rather have a second Halloween in it's place!  But I do enjoy the simplicity of its aesthetic and the whimsical nature of all the hearts in pinks and reds.
I created several Valentine's projects for different groups.  I joined an ATC swap with a fab group on FB-- Mixed Up Mixer-- who are like minded mixed-media creatives.  I only had to swap with one person, but who the hell can make only one ATC?! 😉  I used stamps from Dina Wakley & Stampotique, plus a collage element from Crowabout Studio B.

I also made some cards to send out with these bad boys.  Like I said,  I do enjoy the playful nature of the holiday and it's easy combo of elements.
Simple but cute, right?
I love watercolors but do not practice nearly enough.  After watching a tutorial by the multi-talented James Burke, I painted this little nugget.
I miss watercoloring, but seem to be stuck on an 'off- the-page' kick right now.
What is your fave medium?
