Be Mine - Sunday Snapshot and Beyond Layers

{Vintage Valentine}
Be Mine - Beyond Layers
With Valentine's Day quickly approaching I thought I'd
capture a little love.

The vintage Valentine was found in my late Mother-in-laws things.
I thought it made a pretty still life
with the antique cake plate and flowers.




Ni Hao Yall



Textures used are Kim Klassen's 'Simplicity' and 'Lookup,'

both at soft light. I also added Kim's custom gradient...
 was very happy with the effect it gave the image.

I love the sweet collection you've put together in this still life. How wonderful you found an old Valentine. I have some old cards from my Mom's shower and wedding. The illustrations are so unique.
