Beauty is a light in the heart

I'm allured by Art Journals and seeking to push my crafty boundaries, does it sound pretentious?! In other words I'm playing with colours. This time I used a few lines from Kahlil Gibran.

The Three Muses: Song Lyrics or Poem lines
Mixed Media World: Anything Goes
Take It Make It: Technique: "Bright Vibrant Colours"

Materials used:

Papers: Tilda design paper snippets, DQWV card stock

Colour and texture mediums: Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gesso and acrylic paint, white Distress crackle paint, Derwent watercolour, inktense, graphic and pastel pens, Winsor & Newton watercolours, baby blue Liquid Pearls, distress inks for hearts, Liquitex matte medium

Tools: Panduro heart punch

Stamps and ink: Pink Paislee sentiment, black Archival ink, Rubbadobadoo grass stamp.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated. I hope that you have someone who sees the light in your heart.
Love and hugs
