Late Night Musings


Late Night Musings

I guess I've been inspired lately by Stampington's Art Journaling magazine, and digital journaling seems to be a good way to work out some things that are on my mind. I used a hodge-podge of supplies on this one - all listed in EXIF. I continue to be in love with Thao's Earthen Vessel collection . . . so versatile! TFL.

Journaling reads: i notice myself feeling anxious about a few things lately, although i can't put my finger on what exactly is eating at me. at the same time, i've noticed i've been in a very creative mood as well! the other day, i came across this quotation that stopped me in my tracks. it's hard for me to understand how anything good can come out of a period of anxiety . . . and yet, it rings so true for me right now. perhaps creativity is providing that mental escape that is needed to fully embrace new ideas? or maybe it has to do with being able to channel that energy into something tangible. The whole process of art and creativity continues to intrigue me. for now, i just want to receive it gratefully, and to remember this experience for the future!



    Thank you for sharing this. That is a good quote and you have created a good piece of artwork. Lately I have been drawn to doing this sort of artwork with digital scrapbooking.
    Dianne, your layout is wonderful! I've wondered myself why when I'm feeling very anxious about things I also feel very creative. I hope you're going to print and hang this somewhere where you can see it every day - on those beautiful pin boards of yours maybe? You've shared a piece of yourself I think we can all relate to here and you've done it beautifully and so artistically. Thank you.
    Dianne what a wonderful page! I love your heartfelt journaling and use of the shadow self. I also really like the beautifully warm and colorful background you so creatively put together. Your great blending really completes a lovely page. Thanks for sharing - LOVE this!
    This rings so true Dianne, wonderful quote to explain it too! I find the same, when one area of my life is causing me grief, other areas open up... and scrapbooking is a great way to do that! Sorry to hear about your anxiety, I too suffer from it, but so pleased you were able to recognise a positive in another area... Beautiful colours and I love that silhouette and handwritten journalling.... speaks volumes :-)
    Diane, a wonderful quote to scrap! TFS your journaling, too. I think it must be very cathartic to have written your thoughts down.
    Wonderfully done! A very creative page, from the colors, to the art journal feel, and that quote! I'm sorry you've been dealing with anxiety, and very glad you have found a positive in it - now, to get rid of the anxiety but keep the creativity:) *hugs*
    Beautiful page! Wonderful quote and love the heartfelt journaling.
    Beautifully done! Your journaling is wonderful to read and I can relate too! I love the colours you chose and the silhouette.
    Love the heart felt journaling on this layout.
