♥ (day 12)...

handmade valentine
20 handmade valentines in 20 days...day 12. I had these two vintage hex signs in the back of my mind when I made this valentine. Those are both on illustration board and this is on wood; my version's also not completely perfect or centered, but I was going for a handmade look. Um, right. Good luck anyways!
♥,
Abbey
