Seven weeks ago, I joined a weekly journaling group out of Australia called Colour Me Positive. Each week we receive a quote from the organizer that inspires our journal page for that week. The group members are encourage to share their art journal pages on the closed FB page. There are more than 3200 members from all over the world.
We are on Week 7 and I am thoroughly enjoying the journey. This week’s quote was from Confucius – “Wherever you go, go with all you heart.” It just happened that on Thursday morning, I discovered a heart-shaped leaf on my patio. I took a picture of it with a tag that says “gift of love” and altered that original photo using a number of apps on my iPhone. One of my favorites is called SuperPhoto. I also used PicMonkey. Using the altered photos and the original, I composed a page inspired by the quote, the original photo and, of course, the upcoming Valentine’s Day. I used old dictionary pages, acrylic paint, photo corners and rubber stamps. I have to say, I am very please with the final piece and am thinking of framing it.. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
