... Always with Reckless Abandon

Gosh! It's Monday again! How quickly the weeks go by!!! Last Monday I shared the first page in my small Moleskin journal and said how much I am enjoying using Portfolio pastels; this time I thought I'd share a page I made using them for the heart and background. I have never really used them for drawing before (I know, I know! It's what they're for!) and loved the effects they created. The heart is a Wendy Vecchi stencil (as are the stripes and the swirl stamps). 
In the UK today is a Bank Holiday - so if you have the day off today, I hope you have a fabulous day; if you're working then I hope it goes by quickly!

Love the shading on the heart, it looks 3D. And I also love the sentiment, sometimes we just think too hard about stuff! Jo xx
