Where Is Your Heart?

I am a fan of the band My Chemical Romance--and got inspired this week by their song "Famous Last Words" in which Gerard Way asks "Where's your heart?" So I created this spread in my book. I liked the idea of a diagram of a heart rather than something soft and romantic. I took small metal arrows (from Artchix Studios) and attached them to the back of the heart.

I then stamped the text onto blue cardstock the length of the book and punched holes and set some eyelets so that they could be tied to the sides. I stamped the backs of the cards so that they wouldn't look too plain when closed and embossed them using UTEE.

The background is acrylics that I used a card scraping technique on to give it that distressed look.
