The Heart's Journey--Exploring Art Journals

The Heart's Journey, Fiber Art, 8" x 8"
© 2008 Fannie Narte

Today is my birthday, and I'm commemorating my "new year" with a new goal. "The Heart's Journey" is the cover of my art journal and the first piece in my new adventure--a weekly art journaling blog: The Heart's Journey. Follow the link to see my first post.


After preparing the fabric with gesso, I used acrylics and Neocolors to paint this quilt. When it was dry, I scanned it into Photoshop and added the text using different fonts.

We don't need to wait for January 1st to start a new goal. Every day is an opportunity for a new beginning, a new challenge, a new goal, a new "Heart's Journey."
