A journal page.....

Morning friends......hope you're all well.
I have a journal page to share today...I love getting creative with inks, paints, 
gesso, stencils..........anything messy & it's got me......not so fun to clean up 
afterwards though.......but so worth it! My journal is a Dylusions Creative
 Journal & I love it although I have to say I don't get to play in it as much as I'd
like.....roll on the Summer holidays lol! 
The words were the starting point for this page, they're small talk by Tim Holtz:
'No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart'
How true is that? It doesn't matter what you look like, whether you're fat,
 thin, rich, poor, tall short....true beauty comes from within & it always starts
 with a good heart. 
My hearts were hand cut from old book pages then I added colour with Caran
 D'Ache wax pastels, blended the colour with water & dabbed some off to let
 the words show through then edged them with black. The background is an
assortment of acrylic paint, stencils & circles made with paint tube lids! For the
frame I used a black Posca pen & a white Signo Uni-ball pen.
Rightio, that's me for today, thanks for calling.....see you soon!
