March 2014 Art Journaling Chat "Purple"

Here's my Art Journaling Color page for the Art Journaling Chat found HERE and it's about -- what else? PURPLE! I looked up facts and meanings about the color, then started to journal as IF I were purple. As I was starting to put it all together, I realized that writing about purple was a lot like writing about me.

Journaling reads:

"I am regal… I am elusive… I am rich and full of color & dark and moody… I am graced with spirit and peace, yet chaotic and full of contradiction.

I am strong in purpose and delicate in nature... I am born of the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red & melt their cool, centered calm and focused, dynamic movement into inspiration and imagination… I am artistic and creative.

I am sharp in self-awareness and psychic ability… I am your third eye and 7th Chakra & bring knowledge, wisdom and understanding to your Spiritual Self… I am balanced and connected to universal sources of energy… I strive to heal, to enlighten, to soothe…. I am embodied with good judgement yet magical and mysterious… I am mournful, deep and ambiguous… I am wise, exotic and romantic...

I am heather, sweet plums, eggplant and summer sunsets.

I am violet, plum, lavender, lilac, puce, thistle, orchid, mauve, magenta, royal, amethyst, wine, pomegranate, eggplant or mulberry…

I am purple…."

I watched this page come together and I watched you struggle with it, then it just seemed to click! The journaling which you intended to describe purple does indeed describe you which is soooo cool... what a great theme. Your purple and blend of red/blue to get purple is so striking, it really glows. It IS rich and royal and regal... just superb.

Even though the art journalling isn't about the verbage, I have to say that my favorite part of this layout is the last part of your words: "I am heather, sweet plums, eggplant and summer sunsets.

I am violet, plum, lavender, lilac, puce, thistle, orchid, mauve, magenta, royal, amethyst, wine, pomegranate, eggplant or mulberry…" Each and every word is a delicious treat, a feast for the eyes and the imagination.

I love purple people!

Gorgeous layout, Marilyn! I love all your journaling, the blended colors that jump off the page, while pulling the viewer right down into that purple. I especially like the blue/red yin/yang embellishment - so perfect for the topic.
