Making Art Challenge - Wendy Vecchi Style

My Wendy Vecchi Yahoo group has these challenges each week and this week's challenge is to make something with two hearts and three circles. I decided to finish an Art Journal page that was sitting in my craft room for about a month or more. I started the page when some friends of mine came over and we played with gellatos. It was a ton of fun but I never finished the page after I created the background. So I figured that this Wendy V. challenge was a great opportunity to add something on top of this amazingly bright background. I'm SO into bright colors right now. 
Everything that I added was done with Wendy stamps and sayings. I also used my Tim Holtz Distress markers on some of it and also my watercolor pencils. I also added a Tim Holtz crown with grungeboard and painted it gold and white. I drew the white swirls with my white acrylic paint. This was all done on burlap.
