Take A Word Challenge "Exposed"

I'd like to thank Marie for allowing me to share my art with all of you. Although I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. I am new to blogging and the art challenges I've been joining in on. I chose the word "Exposed" 
This is a page from my art journal it reads. 
When you make your art public your heart is exposed to the World.

My Art Journal

For the Last week or so I've been back to working on my art journal. When I came across this saying, I decided that it needed to be in it! I found the image of this woman on "Magic Moonlight Free Images" Blanca posts so many beautiful vintage photos on her web site and you can use any of them. I get so many ideas from her site, and for that I thank her!

Happy Hour

While looking through my library of vintage photos, I came across the image of this woman. She made me laugh so I added the wine stickers and metal charms. The quote I found for this piece was perfect.
Cheers Everyone!!!!!!
It's Happy Hour!
