IA Challenge - Art with Heart

I'm not a great maker of heart-art as in


... but I adore art-with-heart, which is how I've interpreted this particular challenge :)

I decided to make my first page in my new journal from Nellie Wortman, which just fills my heart with joy every time I see it waiting for me on my desk...


You can see more pages here.

I started with this page Nellie had pre-prepared...


... added different collage elements...


... with this deeply wise poem in the centre...


... and notice too the words on the linnet card 'delight in the little things'... the essence of 'noticing' what's in the garden of life...

And here's the finished page


It's not the greatest picture, as it's getting late here in the UK... but I think you can get the idea :)

Can't wait to see what the others were inspired to create by this great challenge - pop over to Inspiration Avenue to find out.

You did a beautiful job with this challenge, Claire. The butterfly caught my eye, but the bird captured my heart. Lovely addition to the challenge.
