my heart journal ~ for September and October

Heart Journal 2012

..for September heart challenge we were to create a heart of newsprint that was 'all cottony'  .. light and fluffy ..   I covered my cottony heart with a piece of  very old paper , precious to me ... which is the reason I used it for my heart.
..for October heart challenge we were to achieve a wax finish ..I used liquid pearls, Golden Interference Orange and black shoe polish to buff, my heart has the appearance of pewter
Every month I am inspired to learn something new .. so much thanks to Thealie and Lilibulle for these wonderful challenges! Although I am posting late, I have taken my time to enjoy the process of creating these hearts.

I love October .. it's my favourite time of the year .. Autumn.  I even love the Autumn rain.   I really enjoyed making this paper collage.  The rose stamp is from Hero Arts two birds and a rose.  Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.
