This I Believe

Mother Teresa: A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.

 
Inside...
every happy person...
beats a heart...
full of  love. 

Materials used:  My art journal , acrylic inks, stamps, Viva Silver Pearl Pen, scraps of paper, spray inks.

Thanks for all the great feedback about my last post with the aluminum foil flowers.  Here is a video tutorial by Michelle Kral that shows a little of that process.  Hope you enjoy it!

Linking up to Paint Party Friday, Art Journal Every Day, Three Muses (quote on journal page) and Creative Every Day

What is "one true thing" that touches your heart today?

Thank you for visiting! I read and treasure every comment and will answer any questions as quickly as I can.

    1. Thanks Michelle - I was just surfing around and saw this quote, which has YOU written all over it: "If God is the DJ, then Life is the dance floor; Love is the rhythm, and You are the music."

  29. I love both the quote and your beautiful work. The colors are so vibrant and lovely. I spent some time this morning with a good friend and her 7 month old granddaughter. The baby's beautiful smile touched my heart as well as everyone's who saw her. She lit up the room as only a baby can do.
