Heart Journaling Week 1 The Greeting Farm

For those of you who don't know about this challenge, The Greeting Farm is doing a 23 week Heart Journaling challenge.  Every Friday they will announce a new theme and you have until the following Thurs. to upload it to your file in their gallery.  I thought it would be really fun to do this project, because I have never done an art journal before and what a great way to learn new things with a ton of other people. I really enjoyed this first project and can't wait to see what's up next!  For more info on this challenge you can visit their blog, The Greeting Farm.
 So here's my first heart journal entry. I spread glue on both pages and put cut out butterflies and dragonflies on the page. I also put glue on top of them.( I didn't have any modge podge) The shapes were from gypsy wanderings and create a critter I think.  Then I took watercolor pencil to color the background and went over with a brush. I put some purple glitter glue on a few of the butterflies in the background.
 On the left side I have a love quote I wrote with a glitter pen, it's on Spellbinder label 2 die cut. I also cut wings from another cartridge but I can't remember which one. I used a glitter pen to outline the cuts and edges of the wings and covered the wings with stickles.  I cut 3 hearts and covered them with the clear dimensional liquid after writing on them.
On the right side I colored a digi stamp from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps with my Prismacolor pencils and used some stickles on their wings.  I had the frame it has a design on the other side so I just used the white side and inked and stamp with a MS background stamp. The word love is done with chipboard stickers that I colored with glitter pens. Hope you enjoy!
