Isn't It Romantic?

You can consider this my Valentine post.  It's not conventional, but then neither am I.  I'm going to share a few of my favorite photographs I've taken of roses.  Nothing says romance like roses, and you don't have to water these.







I've used silverleaf on many metal roses.






I applied roses to this basket.  You can see how in my "Shabby Basket", post.











The roses were enhanced in my "Aged Cherub" post.










I gave one of my favorite frames a little "Gesso Magic".





Can you tell I love painting metal roses?  This one I painted white, and chipped it up.








I hope you have a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY.
