Sapphire Hair and Kind Eyes

I finished my art journal entry that I wrote the other day, and by that I mean I added paint (and sparkles!) I like the idea of blending journaling and art – for so long I’ve kept my thoughts and art separate, I think it will be good to mix them together. I think it’ll…
