There's love in the Journal!

The second Art Journal Challenge is under way over at The Craft Barn and the theme is "Filled with Love".

Here's my page ...

Background is sponging with DI's through some Tim Holtz die cuts (my favourite ones), some Glimmer Mist and cut out flowers. Hearts are punched from card which has been alcohol inked, distress inked and stamped.  Words were stamped onto tissue paper then adhered. (oops, sorry, impatient me took the photo before the glue was dry).




My words are ...  Family, Friends, Travel, Crafting and Chocolate.

If you fancy joining in the fun the challenge is open until the 25th February.

Take care and thanks for paying me a wee visit.

Suze xx

Thanks for your lovely comments about my work. I've had a nose around yours and I love your work. I too don't do masculine cards but I think yours is really great! The background of your journal page is gorgeous - the flower is stunning. I'm going to become one of your followers as you have given me loads of inspiration - thank you!!
