Wherever you go

Hi! Friends, I am so excited about the 100th party at Make It Monday.
This week I used GB Heart Leaves digi stamp
from Scrapbook Sister to make my art journal.

First, I applied Gesso as base and pasted some pieces of old book
pages, then used Dabber acrylic paint for the background.

The big heart was colored with watercolor and
covered with Crackle Accents and
the small hearts were colored with Copic Marker
and covered with Glossy Accents.

I love the quote "Wherever you go, go with all your heart".


Scrapbook Sisters offers prize of 5 digis for our winner this week.

This gorgeous card is made by Mandy from A Sprinkling of Glitter.
I love Mandy's fabulous flower arrangement and amazing
colouring on the Tilda image. Totally stunning!
Mandy also shares a card drive event for Maddy & Melanie.
Please stop by Mandy's blog or Simon Says Stamp Blog for
more details. Thank you Mandy for sharing your beautiful creation
at MIM this week!
