Steampunk Ouija Heart

I bought a Ouija set at the thrift store recently with the thought of using the board for journal covers, and when I opened the box I realized the little letter finder was heart-shaped!

So I altered it to make this Steampunk Valentine piece:











It's going into the store tomorrow, just in time for Valentine's Day. Let's hope someone with, um, eclectic tastes needs a last-minute gift.

Hi Lori :)

That is just about the best SP art I've seen so far!!

Now I'm wishing I'd saved some of the planchettes from boards I've come across at rummages n such, would love to try something similar :)

Mary Ann, thanks for that high compliment! And now I know what the letter-finder thing is called. I'll be on the lookout for more of these in my thrift store wanderings. Who knew they were heart-shaped??

You are so welcome, Lori :)

I've shown your wonderful Ouija Heart to my kids & bf, we all think it looks SO KEWL - I never would have thought of using a planchette in a million years (sigh lol). Very Creative =D
