The One

The month of February is coming to a close, and that means another monthly challenge at Just Some Lines is closing too.  This month’s theme is Hearts & Love.  The rules of the challenge are simple: 1) stick to the theme and 2) use an image from Just Some Lines. Freebie images are provided (yeah!).

I chose to use this month’s freebie in my art journal for my project.  It’s a girl dreaming of love.  She looks to me like she’s dreaming of one particular love.  I created a background collage from magazine pictures of boys/possible love interests.  I gave the collage a paint wash to help unify the background.  I colored the Just Some Lines image with markers, and adhered it to the journal page.  I added some more paint around the edges of the page to help draw the eye to the digital image.  Finally, I used my new Scarlet Lime pen (thanks, Kerri’s Kreations!) to provide a caption, and colored around the words with a Sharpie.  She knew in her heart she had finally found “the one!”

AEDM Challenge – Day 2 (My First Day)

I joined the Art Every Day Month (AEDM) challenge. I was excited about the idea of creating something new every day during the month of November, but here it is Day 2 and I only have one creation to share.  It is a collage on a 3×5 card.  I love how it has the seasonal touches with the yellow/orange colors, autumn leaves, and caramel apples.

If you are interested in participating in the challenge, it’s not too late.  You can join in at any time during the month of November.  You can sign up here.  I’d love to know if you join.
