Heart art journalling page

The topic at paperartsy blog this fortnight is hearts.  I am sharing this art journal page in made using the fabulous Darcy Eclectica hearts and some Finnabair stamps.


The page is out of my junk journal and I used some strips of torn music paper in the background and then brayered purple paints over the top. I then added the finnabair circles and some stencilled white gesso dots.

Next I stamped the main image onto book print and tore round the edge.  I then chose a page of book paper without words on to stamp the hearts so that they were on the same paper as the main image.  I lined all three up and then added the quote over the top. 

Finally I edged the whole piece with some black ink to frame it a little.  It’s quite subtle but it needed something to finish it off.


Why don’t you make something with a  heart and join in the Paperartsy challenge? I loved the canvas Wanda shared and will be having a go at the masked texture paste idea soon.

Happy crafting!
