Get Messy Art Journal Blog Hop

Welcome to the Get Messy blog hop... or at least a portion of it. :)

In case you didn't know, Get Messy is a wonderful blog by Caylee Grey. She's hosting an art journaling workshop with the theme (this season) of Love. If you join in, you get weekly prompts and a lot of fun.

I've been so sick lately, that I haven't had much time to play around with my journal or the prompts. But I selected one of the prompts that had to do with finding one of your favorite quotes about love and journaling about it. I have always been a huge fan of Leo Buscaglia and his work with Love, so I knew I'd have to choose a quote from him. I didn't get to do a physical journal page, but I threw together a quick five-minute digital page so I'd be done in time (with about an hour to spare) for the blog hop. I'm still hoping to play on paper because I just bought some yummy acrylic paints from the new craft section at Target (FUN).

Anyway, here is my digital page. I used the Mixed Media Monthly main kit and some add-ons from March's subscription at The Lilypad.

The quote may be a little morbid, but its intensity really spoke to me. You just don't want to miss an opportunity for love.

Anyway, that is it for me today.

Up next is France

Woah! I can't believe this is a digital page. I've only made a few digi pages but you make me want to open Photoshop right now and get creating. That's pretty much the greatest compliment.

The quote is beautiful. It spoke to me too.

I LOVE that you did a digi page...I did too, kinda. Your page makes me want to do more! So beautiful and I love the quote!

Great page and I love the balance of the smiling, youthful faces next to the word 'death'. I don't find it morbid though, but inspiring, as thoughts of mortality have been playing on my mind lately. This just makes me want to do even more, be better, and maybe have a go at some digital pages! x

Nina Stenzel said...

Wow, a digital page… love it!

Katie smith said...

Um, amazing!

I've never done a digi art journal page, because I was thought "if I'm not getting messy, what's the point?"
However yours is SO pretty, you might just change my mind. ;)

Not morbid at all, I think that's a beautfiful quote and page :)

TC Larson said...

I'm so intrigued by the digital journaling. I happen to need the tactile exercise of hands-on journaling, but there's something really appealing about being able to do it digitally. Your page is lovely, and I think that quote conveys an important message (not morbid, just true). Glad to meet you here today!
