Keep Me In Your Heart

I knew this quote needed to go into my journal pronto! I did end up making a card for hubby using it for the sentiment. You can see that one HERE

And this is what I did in the journal :

I kept it very simple as I wanted the quote to be the strong focal point. I used a loose letter alphabet that I picked up from Michaels for $1.50 long ago. 
When I first started the journal, I added some colour to each and every page. Some more, some a little. Some painted some with oil pastels. The idea was to make a start to facilitate quick page making in the future. And I tell you it works. It was tedious to start with, but I'm so glad now that I did it that way. The composition book pages are pretty sturdy, but they do 'shine' or show through on the other side when you use bold colour of felt tip markers. Something to watch out for.
The strip fabric and fabric heart I added long ago when I had these pretty remnants, but they were perfect for this quote. The stamps are 'Stitches' by Bo Bunny. A light spray of alcohol inks completed the page in record time.

So simple but it says exactly what I want it to say!
