This is snowman love, but I think it can be used for Valentines Day because of all the hearts and it is still snowing where I live. This is another Barb Jones design from the April Quick and Easy Painting mag. I just love her designs. I still need to add a bow around it. ~Anj

It's really cute, Anj. Nice work! What do you mean "glass block?"

RE: Glass Block Valentine

Thanks Oceanna...it's painted on a glass block like you would find at the home improvement store. You may have seen them with decoupaged pictures on front or with ribbons tied up like a gift with Christmas lights inserted into a hole drilled in the back??? I intend to buy a light box eventually when Barb gets then back in stock so this will sit on top with the light shining thru it. ~Anj

Very cute, Anj, and I think it's perfect for Valentine's considering that it's still winter and you still have snow on the ground. ;o) I like her designs too, have a few others in back issues I think. Luvs

Hi, Anj

This is really cute - a great way to keep snowmen out past Christmas. You must have a really steady hand - your lettering and lines are perfect. Happy Valentines's Day!

RE: Glass Block Valentine

Thanks you guys. Glad you liked my snowy valentine. ha I did end up with quite a few snowmen that got left out after Christmas this year. Kinda fun decorating with them. CC~ I used a fine point permanent marker to do my lining with this time. The directions said to go over it 3 times so it's supposed to look rough and squiggly. The pattern did anyway. ha I painted the wording on with a tiny brush though. Glad you think it turned out good. ~Anj

Anj that is so cute. It looks like pen and ink. Did you paint all those little lines? Great job. We still have snow also and that is perfect for Valentines Day.
