I'm really not! I don't think I was ever a romantic, when all my friends were desperate for the post on Feb 14th,for me there were always far more interesting things to pursue!
I'll forgive you for thinking that I am a fan of Valentine's day as all I seem to making at the moment are sickly sweet lover's offerings! The trouble is that whenever I mix a colour to work with, I always end up with far too much & just can't bring myself to waste it...hence so many cakes with hearts & now red roses!
This is one of several chocolate & red rose hearts that I've been working on to try & use the red & pink clays littering my workbench. I have to be honest & say that I got so very sick of making hundreds of red roses that the last of the mix "accidentally" fell on the floor so, of course I had to throw it out then as I couldn't possibly use it with bits of fluff attached to it! That's my excuse anyway & I'm sticking to it!!
Then there's this one...see what I mean about the overdosing on red roses? -))
Would you believe that there are another 3 variations on this theme!
I can definitely say now that my Valentine phase is FINISHED for this year!!
