Haiku: (Romantic ) LOVE


After attempting "PATRIOTIC" Love,
I thought that I would tackle "Romantic" Love
and finally settled for two versions:

a.... Love's sweet melodies
Bliss filled days and nights
Valentines for ever.


b... New love flourishes
Blissful days and nights
Soulmates forever
.


Using a piece of pink Lutradur, highlighted with Lumiere Pearlescent Magenta paint as the background,
I appliqued three solid floral hearts and one heart outline to the background.
I also painted with the same Lumiere a structured heart shaped card.
Trailing over the open heart is a green vine trimming.

Using a gold ink pen I added the two haiku----one in the quilting lines above the heart,
the other inside the large heart.
Unfortunately, the gold writing did not photograph clearly.
I also include the scribble page of my journal, where I played with words.

This is so pretty! i really like both haikus and love your techniques. You have inspired me to play with my Lutradur - it's still in the package. Very nicely done.

Beautiful Maureen! there's a very "lilting" feel - and a lot of tenderness. Question - the heart in the upper left corner - is it embossed? or is it an effect from the pen? or?
