I'm trying to catch up on my 30 Lists so I did two more art journal pages last night.

The wings on the heart are Bombshell Stamps from the Sacred Heart set. It was one of my first sets and I still reach for it often. Gotta love that kind of staying power. After cutting the wings out, I Mod Podged them to the heart and background and then, once dry, colored them with Sakura gel pens.
Here are the pages side by side. click to see them full-sized.
And I wanted to thank my friend Eileen for the Versatile Blogger Award, so sweet of you.
