Follow your heart....

Hello friends

I hope you are all good!
Today I'm sharing with you a journal page...
Just lately, Ive noticed that time is running by so fast, everyday life takes over and sometimes I don't know if Im coming or going!

So today I made some time, just for me and put to use some of my lovely Mother's day presents that I received from my family....they've been sat on my desk for a couple of weeks and I finally got to play!

The background is made up of lots of gesso, crackle paste and old text,
Ive used a really mash up of different products for this page.
I used some Impasto paints from Finnabair, (chocolate and Aubergine) over the top of the gesso and crackle medium...
Then I added gold from a Gold leaf Krylon pen randomly to add some contrast.
The photo is from the Tim Holtz photo booth collection.
 I then sewed into it and then framed it with some rusty wire.
I stamped some very faint stars (Tim Holtz) in areas of the background, love the hickory tones...such a subtle colour.
I wanted the staples to look rusty so I added some colour from Finnabair rust paste (love this product!)
The 'Follow you heart' words are from 7dots studio.....I chose these words as I sometimes  need reminding to do just that!

All of the products are available from Art from the Heart here 

Thank you so much for passing by, 
 do feel free to leave a comment....I appreciate each and everyone!

Have yourselves a great week!
