Love is....

I wrote awhile ago how I was inspired by Mike Deakin to begin art journaling, and if you follow my blog, you've seen my first few attempts at it.

So Mike started an art journaling Facebook page called Mission Inspiration.   The premise of this page is that each month he would give us a "mission" or certain prompts and elements to get our creative mojo going to create a page. The first mission was a doozie, but a lot of fun, and very inspiring!

First Mission went as follows:

So, it was a little daunting for me to follow this since I'm fairly new to art journaling and I'm a little limited on supplies.  But I was able to pull this one off!

For the tissue, I just used some red tissue paper with white polka dots I found at ACMoore.  The black hearts that appear on my page were from a pretty old Close to My Heart stamp set called You and Me.  I also had a border heart stamp that I had in my stash (think it may have been from Stampin' Up), so I used that around the border of my pages.  The other hearts where digital hearts I found on ETSY and I used them as my collage elements.  My three colors were black, red, and white.  I think the rest is pretty self explanatory.

Mission accomplished. Yeah Me!
