A Beautiful Heart...

It was Friday craft and art morning with my friends and today I did this background page in my Moleskine art journal. 

I cut a heart out of book paper and painted it in DecoArt American Blue mist and Advocado dip. Some Lamp black for the little circles through some sequin waste. Then I grabbed a little top from one of my sprays and did some circles. I used a card for the background and my finger for blending, just using the same colours I used on my heart. I used a bit of the Americana Flesh tone on to start and worked in layers from that neutral colour and then used that same colour on the top layers. 

When I came home I wrote the quote. I have been wanting to use this big quote. I have had it in my little quote book for ages, just waiting for the right page. 

A Beautiful heart can bring 
things into your life that all the
money in the world couldn't obtain.
