This little plaque features a broken anatomical heart. with a quote from Oscar Wilde. Sometimes the only thing that will do on Valentin's is an anti Valentine.
My obsession with boxes is well documented. I think I just like the idea of secret spaces to squirrel away tiny treasures and such. I love this paper with tiny skulls because it kind of looks like black and white polk-a-dots until you get closer. And the filigree skull is just so pretty I want to use them on every thing.
This wall art is perfect for those who prefer hearts and skulls over hearts and flowers. It's also a bit of a memento mori piece. I've included lines from Dylan Thomas's poem "And Death Shall Have No Dominion"
Next week I'm starting work on a new jewelry box with a three dimensional skull on the lid. It's a new process so I can't wait to try it out. If it works I'll post the results. :)
