Quick Journal Page of Love ♥

I miss painting.  I am all over the place these days.  But I know that when I veer off the path eventually I make my way back home.  

I am always inspired by hearts.  You may have noticed that they tend to show up in most of my art!  This time I wanted to see how it would work to just use a white background with red hearts.  I did this in my small journal and always wish for more space.  I used white gesso, stamps, alizarin crimson, oil pastel, and black marker.  I stenciled on the hearts and they messy'd them up a bit.  

Sharing today over at Paint Party Friday.  Hope you will stop by!  A new artist is featured each week.  It is always nice to meet new peeps!


  1. Beautiful journal page! I always love white, black and red together. Oh, and hearts too of course!! :)
