Valentines Day Art Journal Page

Last weekend I found a little time to create another a
Art Journal page on the theme Valentines and it seemed like a chance to sue different colours and materials.
Using inspiration from You tuber France Papillion I used my large heart shaped cutter and cut out lots of hearts using white card.  I then attached them to the pages using Decoupage glue.  This did take a while to dry so I went off and did the ironing (I live such a glamours life).
Once dry at then added a coat of white Gesso and at this point I did wonder if I had done the right thing.  I then added a layer of pink ink which I then reduced down a bit with water and rubbed some away with a baby wipe to blend the bright colour.  Dried with a hairdryer and then added much smaller card hearts which I painted separately with red and pink ink.  
Splats were added for interest and 3D heart gems were glued on using Tacky Glue and this contrasted with that of the card hearts.
The large hearts were highlighted with red oil pastel and a flash of white acrylic paint.
The opposite page features a collage of different materials including tissue paper, enphemera and raffia ribbon.
A very different journal page and I am now half way through the book and seeing as I am half term next week I intend on trying to do another in between planning my lessons.
Maybe something to do with pattern design.
Take care All.

What a gorgeous valentine page. I really enjoyed reading how you created it and fitted in a bit of ironing at the same time.
