From the Heart and Tag Tuesday

Okay, I'll start with Tag Tuesday. We are supposed to be making tags with something we found. At the weekend I found some pressed 4-leafed clovers in an old book, and planned to make a tag with them. BUT - I have forgotten in which book they are....I will start searching seriously, and hope to get that tag made later!

I picked a journal prompt from my tin today, and saw *From the heart* - eeeeeeeeek! Not really my cup of tea. But I remembered that nice quote from *The little Prince* about only seeing rightly with the heart, and that was the inspiration for my pages:

The little prince has been coloured by hand and then cut out, and stuck on to form a pocket, so that I can put some *from-the-heart-journaling* into it, and keep it for my heart.... The background has been made with Adirondack colour wash and stickles, with some little planets and stars stuck on. My finger will probably be blue for some days. The sparkle was, unfortunately, not easy to photograph.

Have a good day you all. I need to do some dreaded H*******K today, so I'd better start before I forget it again. Thanks for visiting!


  1. Love this. I often read The little Prince to the kids, it's a magical story. Hugs, Sarah

  2. Oh, Little Prince's famous quote. :)Awesome page, Valerie! And I can imagine what happened with the sticky tape yesterday. Lol!

  3. These pages are really lovely Valerie. I couldn't help laughing at your missing clovers though. Don't overdo the HK. xx

  4. Morning Valerie. Lovely pages. Hope you find your missing clovers. How many times do we put things away for safe keeping and then can never find them :) Have a wonderful day.
    Regards Florence xx

  5. Finally catching up Valerie and your makes of the last few days are just gorgeous.
    I have the dreaded to do as well and today is warm and sunny finally so my washing should at least dry outside.
    Hope your day goes to plan.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  6. Gorgeous pages and I do love the quote, so true! The background came out beautifully!

  7. Fabulous pages, Valerie! Don't do too much of that "H" stuff :)

  8. That dreaded H word again, should be banned from the dictionary in my opinion.
    Love your pages and the little boy is so adorable. hope you find the lucky four leaf clovers.
