Day Two Smeared & Smudged Art Journal Everyday DT Challenge

Today the Smeared and Smudged Art Journal Everyday DT Challenge was to incorporate hearts. So I knew instantly I wanted to use one of my favorite stamps, the voodoo doll stamp by Smeared Ink. I have recently used this stamp on a few valentine cards I made too. I also used a stamp of dots by Artful Legacy. I painted the voodoo doll with Tattered Angels Glam. I used Smooch on the heart. I like a primitive look to my journal..obviously. I pulled out some of my old Creative pens and markers  to use on this page too. I love using stash.
I wrote the little poem about the voodoo doll in hopes my hubby will think more about expressing his love in perhaps a more romantic way. (A lady can dream, right?) He needs to think about what his lady needs to feel special sometimes. ( Though I probably have no right to complain, I have more than most.)
On the right side of the page I wrote what love is to me between two lovers.
I appreciate the comments and look forward to more. Art journaling is new to me but I like this    challenge because it brings me out of my comfort zone of cards and scrapbooks. Makes me express   myself in a more raw form.
You can check out the challenge at:
 I also entered this in the morbid romance challenge at:

Great page and poem. I can think of someone who could use a few pricks in the head (among other parts. LOL). Great list for what "LOve is" and clever that you put them in hearts as well. xxD
