Just for fun week 1 !!!

Hello everyone! Its the beginning of a new week and the beginning of a new challenge blog ~JUST FOR FUN~ Now I need to get back into more of this type of crafting instead of just the journalling I am doing haha!  So I thought I would give this a go.  There is a monthly theme, slightly different each week.  This month the theme is wings and for this week we are asked to think about hearts as well.  Here is mine...


I used a heart chippie from my stash and used glossy accents with alcohol inks dropped on - I love this as its so easy to do!!!  The wings are from a Maya Road stamp.  I will probably hang this from a drawer knob or door handle hahaha

Do pop over to take a look at this challenge!  Thank you for taking the time to look my lovelies, HUGS XXX

Not only are the colors beautiful, but the shine on that heart really caught my eye. Although I enjoy your journal pages and drawings, when I think of you, this is the type of art I'm used to. I truly LOVE this piece!
