He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not ~ Blissful ATC Swap

Recently I've decided to branch out and join some art groups.  Step outside of my comfort zone and give my artwork a much needed injection. 
I joined the Blissfull ATC Swaps group and the theme for February was,
"He Love's me, He Love's me Not"
The swap was 3 for 3. 
I called this ATC, "You know from the very first kiss"
the image is one of mine from the Paintings of Romance Collage Sheet
But my favorite aspect is the broach type creation I did at the bottom I like to imagine it is what he would give her as an anniversary gift.
The second ATC I sent I called "Pairing them up"
When you open it up there is a list of boy names on the left and girl names on the right.  Busy Little Cupids make a list of who goes with who.  The inside images are from a Digital Collage Sheet Busy Little Cupids the outside image from Alpha Stamps.
And for my final ATC I went much more literal with the theme. 
She is pulling petals from a flower, you know just like the traditional "He Love's me, He Love's me not" images. 
I absolutely love the image, it too is one of mine from the Paintings of Romance Collage Sheet
I created the little book it is less than 1". 
I hope my partner likes what I have created for her.
My partner was Kamali M. alas she is bloggless so I can't share any more of her art with you.  She took a totally different and very ingenious approach.  She used all three of her ATC's to spread the theme across.
The first ATC in the set start off with "He Love's Me
Then a short little poem by Emily Bronte
And the sad final ending of a broken heart. 
I enjoyed this swap and creating for someone new.  I'm looking forward to more Blissful ATC Swaps in the future.

I think your creations are amazing! I love them. She'll be thrilled with them! I would. In your first piece, I think it's wonderful to think maybe he would have given her the brooch. SO romantic. I love, love, love, the mini 1" book! So cool. Bravo!
