Your Story Matters Art Journal Page

I made this art journal page that I thought I’d share with you. I had fun blending the imagery, using different elements as a reflection on how I was feeling on my birthday this year…contemplating the passing of time, life and my own journey through it.

A Creative Need Inspiration

I have another creation from our ACN Design Team member NAZNEEN that I wanted to share with you!

No Less Radiant – Art Journal Page

We’re visiting Japan with the ART JOURNAL CARAVAN and I was prompted to use a Haiku and made my own.   This page came to be with a lot of symbolism behind it. The bird in this page represents how time flies, the crane with the woman represents the desire for eternal youth(of mind), happiness and wisdom, the words in between represent a fragment of my life lived and the symbol for optimism represents my struggles and pursuit of well being. I’ve used imagery and papers from Studio Tangie March Collection Parcel Kit to make my page. Have a creative day! Deena

Digital Art Page -Art Journal Caravan

Hello!! This month with Art Journal Caravan we are visiting JAPAN!  I find something about this destination very thought provoking and inspiring!  Tangie Baxter has created another fascinating parcel/kit to create with as well and this is my first journal page for March/Japan! But I will definitely be creating more!   I am reflecting on change and beauty with this piece.   I would love to hear your thoughts on it! Have a creative weekend!!  Deena
