Art Journal Page and a beautiful place

This page combines the doodling and layering prompts on UKScrappers. I was away for half term at the beautiful place below so had less time to play but the views were worth it. 
I gessoed the page and then used red, pink and yellow dylusion paints with a water wash. The heart stamp is from Indigo Blu. I then tore some scrap pieces of TH paper and glued it on with and added more gesso.

I also added more around the edge. I was going to punch butterflies out of some inky card waste but found a pile of them inside my tonic border punch so stuck them on first and then after punching some out of the card tore the card into rough shapes and stuck on at the top.
I then doodled lots on the page, using purple and white sakura gel pens and a sharpie, whilst watching tv. It was very calming - the journalling was about my hate of the commercialism surrounding Valentine's day and around the heart I wrote about why I can be romantic, just not on that day.
