Hearts in my journal!!

In my Donna Downey journal I made this spread.
I started out with a coat of creamcoloured acrylic paint and then glued some Tim Holtz tissue wrap melange here and there. Then I added some crackle medium here and there and after drying coated with a layer of taupe coloured acrylic paint.
Then I did some vintage stamping, and added the turqoise grunge hearts with a stencil and acrylic paint. I used masks from Tattered Angels and texture paste to make the large and small heart. After drying I started spraying with Lindsy Stamp gang sprays, Buccaneer Bay blue and Bachelor Button Blue, which not only gives a lovely colour but also a gorgeous shimmer.
I found this great quote on the Internet, don't you just love Internet?! You really can find just about anything there.
I used the inclusion in the middel in a way to bind the two pages, so I made sure the hearts continued onto the page itself.
I really enjoyed making this spread, I hope you all enjoy viewing it. Hugs Frea
