Heart on a String journal page - Faery Ink inspiration

Heart on String is such a great image to use in a journal page! And it's my inspiration for Faery Ink today.
And it's an image that actually got me out of bed and journaling at past 11PM!!!!  Yup just needed to be out of me and unto a page.  Do journaling do that to you?  I've found so far that I just get this idea that just needs to come out and be put to paper!!!!  It's like it's got a life of it's own.  And this is what happened with this great image!

I have to admit that I felt like my heart was making way too much sound.... and beating too fast and I just wanted peace and quiet and silence both in my head and in my body.... but it was better to journal this than do what was going on in my mind at the time...

I used mixed media stuff on this page....  even some nail polish!!!! :)  the base was done with some tattered Angel sprays Cherry tomatoes and my Dylusions cherry pie.  I added some ribbon and some pins to this.  And journaled a lot!
Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics, and revlon nail polish lol.  I also added some real pins to it as well as a ribbon to follow the string.
