My new obsession over the past few months has been journalling.  Inspired by Shawn Petite to actually think I could play with paint I've found it very helpful over the last six months during the frustration of a house move that just hasn't happened.  It has been such a help during sleepless nights to come and put something down on paper and I found it much more satisfying than just making cards.

I recently purchased some of Shawn Petite's stencils and when they arrived they had a lovely little card with them with this quote on it - I wanted to turn it into an art journal page and came up with this during a sleepless night.

The background has been made with a Tim Holtz stencil - one of my favourites the mosaic - and some textured paste.  I used Distress Inks for the background and various stencils and stamps from my stash.  

The heart stamp is one of my favourites from Visibile Image called Follow your Heart and I love using it not just for the obvious valentine's cards.    The heart beat, top right, and the little heart, bottom left, are also part of the same set. The heart in the middle was stamped onto tissue paper and added with some Matte Medium.  I cut out the words from Shawn's card and added them to the piece.  

I'm adding this into the following challenges:

Path of Positivity - Quiet Time - my quiet time helps my creativity
Simon Says Stamp - Monday -Stamp it 
Sir Stamp a Lot - favourite stamp
We love 2 create - AG mixed media

A beautiful, tranquil journal page, Fiona. The quote is inspirational and the muted, pastel colours are so soothing. I love the added texture from the mosaic stencil. Your page is perfect for our September 'Quiet Time' challenge at The Path of Positivity. Thank you for sharing. xx
