Art Journal Journey and Mix It Monthly are two favorite monthly challenges of mine because since discovering them my eyes have opened up to SO many new possibilities!

DO have a look and visit -I dare you not to be inspired! On that note, here is my final (I think:) contribution to this month's themes:

Are you working on Valentine projects? What are you doing to be more courageous in your art?
I'd love to know!
