Another quote, another Art Journal page


Well, in the end I DID go back to the page I had flipped to in my small art journal, because the quote I had pulled was the right size for it:

This was one of those cases where the page was so highly decorated that it didn’t actually need much. I loved the bold black circles, and honed in on the word contained so I could focus on them. I used an old stamp I created, with numbers that make up all the birthdays in our family, to incorporate the paper tape binding a little bit:

I die cut a little bubble die and trimmed it into two clusters:

then smudged some Distress Oxide ink on it to make it stand out a bit better and placed them within two of those circles. I felt that went nicely with the quote.

Overall, I like it. At this point it is still all about getting into the habit of making pages regularly. I am happy to be making use of these long hoarded quotes, and I love that they are printed out and ready to go. I think I need to explore my saved files of quotes a bit more fully and prep some other sheets as well, some with different fonts, maybe some white writing on black, just to mix it up. Of course that sort of thing takes a bit of time to do so we’ll see if I manage it. It might make sense to do that first, so I don’t get tired of the same font and size as well, so making the challenge a little more … challenging!

We’ll see. If I do I’ll share.

And, yeah, one more for the AJJ! My style is still evolving and hard to pin down, even for me. LOL!

  1. A super page and quote and i like how you used all the details and pieces you added. Thank you for the inspiration and for linking to AJJ.

  2. What a mesmerizing page you created in your journal. I like the symmetry and the asymmetry, too. This is a well executed and beautiful journal entry and simply perfect for Bleubeard’s and my theme at Art Journal Journey. So glad you were inspired to create more journal art this month.

  3. I absolutely love this page Mary Anne, it’s gorgeous!

  4. I really like this too Mary Anne. I love the numbers of the left side tape, and I love the bubbles you die cut also. I am impressed you made that stamp with the numbers. How fun. And where did you find that quote? It’s a good one. I might steal that and use it one day. Smile. Hope That’s OK. Have a super end of this week, and thanks so much for joining Elizabeth’s challenge at Art Journal Journey. It’s good to have you join us. Hugs-Erika

    • It is from a book of love poems called Love Language and is from a poem by Tyler Knott Gregson and part of a longer quote “I would be lying if I said there were not times that I am an earthquake contained inside this skin” đŸ˜€

  5. What a fab page Mary Anne. I love the bubble die especially and it certainly suggests an earthquake bubbling up inside you. I am impressed by the stamp you created yourself and what a good idea to choose those numbers that relate to the family. The colours pink and green work so well together, a combination I love which is enhanced by the bold black circles. Yes, a winner for me.
