Home is where the heart is

Good morning, I've been creating in my art journal lately  and wanted to share a page with you,

I love how it turned out!

I used water colors and salt for the back ground. I mixed different shades of pinks and oranges together, misted the page with water and sprinkled salt all over it, Let dry over night and brushed off the salt the next day. I only had table salt to work with but sea salt would be great to use. Next I used gesso and a stencil all over the page.

I cut the heart out of a box, sprayed with water to expose the corrugated under neath. When dry, I used water colors  and gesso. The wings are from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts, 

I painted a scrap sheet of cardstock with the same water colors and cut out the Hearts and house,
I used a black sharpie marker to add some detail.
Thanks for taking a look and happy crafting!
