10 Years Ago and Super Powers

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

The first topic was, '10 Years Ago..." This was really heading into sad territory so I focused on the facts - like that my boys were 3, 4 and 5 and we had amazing friends, I was researching homeschooling. 

I started out with this:

And made this:

She is a favorite Stampotique stamp of mine called Glimmering Hope

On the other side I used the prompt, 'My Superpowers' and I didn't worry about the two sides matching. I decided that it's all me so some sort of continuity should present itself.

The heart was some leftover Ouchless Cardboard from Gauche Alchemy that I used the area around it in this Love Birds AJ page:


And I used a mix of stickers, rub-ons and words from magazine pages for the text.

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.
