I have created an Art Journal page with that thought in my mind. Cute hearts, with dark and rough edges, revealing or covering a mess inside...
.... I know, kind of deep... ;)
This Art Journal is created for Scrap-Perra and on this particular project we had a special theme in the Design Team. We all got the same three papers to create with, from American Craft - Dear Lizzy - Daydreamer. It is so much fun to see how different all the projects turned out, even though we started with the same base. :)

This is one of the Project Life pages that Maria/Miis in the Design Team created... can you see what inspired me to do my Art Journal?
I really loved the card in the top middle, so I had to make my own version of it. :) ... I really like the one on the lower right as well... Cute! :)
I had this really messy mop up page that I didn't know what to do with...
... this was the perfect way to use it, since only small parts of it showed through the hearts.
There is some really yummy texture and lots of layers in the mop up page - Liquitex Texture Gel Blended Fibers, Dylusions ink, Deco Art Acrylic Paint and different masks/stencils from The Crafters Workshop and Prima. :)
I wanted the letters to really stand out. They had a soft pattern in white at first, but I painted them with a Faber Castell Big Brush Pen in hot pink to make them pop.
As a small decoration I added some wood veneer hearts from Studio Calico...
... and did some doodling around everything. :)
