Kick Start Your Art Day 2

Well, I'm back!
I am really enjoying these random prompts from
Smeared and Smudged for this week long challenge.
I am two for two, as far as creating outside of my box using 
the prompts. Although, when I saw that today's prompt was,
I about choked, and considered skipping this one all together.
BUT, I didn't quit. I just let the idea percolate all day, until I came
up with something fitting my style and mental state.
Not an easy task on my best of days....

I began my page with some Dylusions Inks.
I've tried to make my own spray inks in the past, using TH Distress re-inkers,
but they were no match for the vibrancy and opacity of the
Dylusions sprays. Spend the money and buy the real deal.

Here are those hearts that the prompt called for. 
Not a fan, but they'll do pig. They'll do.

And here we have the dark and sinister side of me that I take
such pride in. I found the heart diagram on the interwebs, and added
the saying over the top of it using Gimp. I felt that the page also called
for a demon, so I added the laughing imp stamp, and some stitches around the heart. 

I have just enough pages left in my current art journal 
to complete this week's challenges.
Then I can begin working in a new one! How exciting!!


  1. Coll and creey, Glo! I'm with you on the Dylusions...FAB! Your heat with the sentiment is wonderful and I love the stitching around it. Thought perhaps the devil was clutching his heart in agony, rather than laughing. Either way, works for me. xxD

  2. Haha brilliant take on the challenge. Loving the devil on the side and the background looks fab. x

  3. Awesome page! I love your inky background. I rolled with the hearts prompt, but my journaling expressed what has really been on my mind lately, so I think it's cool that you gave it your own twist.:) Thanks for playing along with us!

  4. Love your hearts, you did it great !! thanks for playing along with us !

  5. Ohhh, what a great saying. Nice heart under it also. You did a fab job w/ this prompt and know what you are saying when had to come up w/ something using them. Dark, disturbing, and a demonically heart felt page.
