NDSD_Chal Art Journaling - Change


NDSD_Chal Art Journaling - Change

These were the stories I had planned for an art journal page, until Jody and Marilyn insisted that the topic must be change. But an aha moment IS a change; I just had to write the journaling to include the word - several times. I'm fairly happy with the outcome. It's definitely more journal than art, and yes, the chairs are a photo. But they certainly fit the topic, and seemed more pattern than picture. They're blended with overlay at 58%, over the chalkboard paper, which in turn has a hard light blend, 92%, over two copies of Thao's Art Journal paper, blended with color burn at 59%. I'm not thrilled with the border, but it is a brush. The other brush I used was a PSE soft round to paint the skateboard brown. Is that cheating? ^_^ To the best of my knowledge, all the images are available for public use; the DNA is copyrighted by MADPRIME, but includes terms of use. I found no attribution for the other. Thanks for the challenge!



    I love your journaling (although I am not sure I understood the DNA part lol). Great job with the prompt!
    Love those "AHA" moments. Fascinating journaling and great blending (I didn't realize that was a photo until I read your post.)
    This is what art journaling is all about. You have done a beautiful job on this page, fantastic journaling. I so admire those who excel at the craft.
    Jo this is what art journaling is about for you this week and in this moment. And that is what I think art journaling is about. Super layout.
    I don't know much about art journaling, but I enjoyed reading about all of these "Aha" moments. The thought of a bunch of confused molecules "milling about" made me laugh! I think it's important to note these memorable events in our lives, and this looks like a great format to do so. The school desk background is perfect here. Great layout!
    I agree. We teachers always remember the AHA moments. Great journalling.
    Great page. I love the blended background and the journlaing.
    It's been lovely to read these stories. Thank you for sharing them all.
    LOVE this, Jo and as a former teacher I so enjoyed reading about your "aha" moments - they sure are treasures! You did a wonderful job with this page and of course - journaling is a big part of Art Journaling, it's half of its name! Everything you did here is as Karen said about YOU and your experience and as we said - "anything goes"! And, most importantly, it's all about you. :) Lovely blending and use of symbols and I giggled at imagining students acting out DNA. What a great teacher you were, no wonder you have so many interesting stories to tell. Lovely work and thanks for joining the challenge! :)
    Thank you all for your gracious comments. I think I'm embracing art journaling, in its many variations. It is making it possible for me to scrap events in my life for which I have no photos, only memories - most happy. My "Album of Me" is growing thicker. :)
