This little silhouette was bought at a yard sale many years ago. It was plain wood with a light stain on it. So I decided it needed some fixin' up. I painted the little couple black, the base cream. Then I rubbed some stain over the base to antique it (hard to see in this photo). The heart in the background got a piece of vintage sheet music over it and some ageing done to it. I made a red florette and a black one from crepe paper, added glass glitter to them and glued them on. I made tiny strips of crepe paper to make the heart the boy is handing the girl look like a candy box. Then some dots of glitter on it. This photo does not really do it justice. It sits in my queen chair for the photo to be taken.
