The red heart is dried oil paint from my pallet. I like working in this small journal but I haven't put anything on the cover yet. In Kelly Kilmer's journaling class she uses a focal point which is usually a magazine image of a person but I am having trouble finding an image of a person that is this small size. Focal points are so important and sometimes they are the hardest to get right---at least for me. There are rules that can be applied like the rule of thirds which I try to stick to somewhat. But it's all great fun to make journal pages.
