21 secrets {art journal} hearts....

finally had time to watch the 21 Secrets video last night and found a little window of time to go to the studio and paint myself.

i gesso'd my pages first and then, started layering my acrylic paint; working with water and stencils. i added the letters- staggering those across both pages to tie the pages together and drew the heart in on both pages. this page got a big heart and the other page- a small one. but don't let the small size diminish the meaning, in fact, the small heart has our initials....great things sometimes come in small packages.

on this page below i was able to sew- i did not want to sew on the other page as i had already painted on the back side of that page and did not want the stitching to come through. i had a great time making these pages last nights- love the colors i chose and painted with- some of my favorite.
