Shape of my Heart

Recently, I came across a challenge over at Mixed Media Place blog.  We were to create a piece inspired by a song "Shape of my Heart" by Sting.

Sting's music is not exactly my cup of tea but as I was pondering about the lyrics and going through the Designer Team's contributions, I had a brief visit from my Muse and created this journal page:

I had a page waiting for me in my journal for some time - I used it to test my newly cut stencil and didn't know what to do with it next. I really disliked the stencil when it was just a design in my computer but when I cut it and tested it, it was a love at first sight!

I had to gesso the page first because I wanted to start on a white background. Then I added some bright colours with the FW acrylic inks and collaged some scraps of paper. Finally, I distressed the look a bit more with some background stamps and I also splattered more ink on it.

I'm in love with this mess!! ;-)
