I’m finally getting around to posting an art journal page I created last weekend.
I challenged myself to work outside my comfort zone, using colors and combos I seldom gravitate towards. It was a good challenge. It made my stretch my creativity while still working within my general style.
Recently I’ve noticed that when I go to peruse through a completed art journal or altered book from my collection, I tend to grab one that has something interesting peeking out from the pages. Bits of lace, fibers, buttons or beads…you can find them all on my bookshelf. To that end I decided this page needed a bit of movement. Besides, my handmade paper beads fit the color scheme
This tea tag quote spoke to me along with the butterfly pin.
Think of the Monarch…so fragile yet has the amazing strength and endurance to migrate 2500 miles each year. If it worried about how fragile it was it would never go anywhere or do anything. It would not live.
Be strong in your fragility.
