Here’s a valentine I made which features an out of season theme. I think valentines can be given throughout the year and it’s nice to be able to make some that aren’t all pink and red. This one features two robots from SugarPea Designs and assembled in a Peekaboo Window frame.

For the wheat field, I used the same technique that I use for grass but used golden colors instead. I then added some booting heads to make it more distinct as wheat instead of just golden grass. This was done with the tip of the marker at an angle for that natural teardrop shape. The lighter ones show that the best.
The balloons were a puzzle to work out on what color they should be. With the gear shaped edges, it was hard to imagine them being standard latex. Then I remembered what Amy Young‘s fantastic Mylar balloons and knew that would be perfect! Check our her post as she has some great tips and even a video. I just needed to translate those tips to this shape. I think they turned out well.
