This is the background I started with.
The hearts really didn't suit the topic so I altered it a bit with Inktense blocks and some Balzer Design stencils by Crafter's Workshop.
Then I decided I didn't like the green so I painted over the background with white.
And added back less muddy green and blue.
And here are the finished pages, gessoed again, of course :-)
Love my Stampotique Stamps. They've been so much fun to add to my art journal.
