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!”
The Just Some Lines monthly challenges start on the first Saturday of the month. I hope you decide to give it a try.
