Poetry in Motion for AJJ

Finally, taking some much need craft time, I decided some art journaling was called for!! Jo of Lets Art Journal is the hostess for Art Journal Journey this month and she chose Poetry in Motion and challenged everyone to use their favorite poems, quotes and sayings to inspire your art.


Ok, so I'm an electronic hoarder over on Pinterest, and actually have a file that is labeled "Says It All".  This is where I save all sorts of sayings and quotes that speak to me, so that is where I looked for some inspiration for this challenge.  I kept coming across this quote, in different fonts and pictures.......yeah, I REALLY do like this quote!

I chose this one with the girl and her wings behind the quote, then printed it and trimmed it out.
The background is tissue paper, butterfly napkin, in, paint, half a paper Dollie and a stamped image of a butterfly.  I did go around the girl and the quote,the next morning with a Pit Pen and a wet brush to create some shadow.  I also added the colors to her wings.  I am thinking of tearing this out of my journal and hanging it on the wall.........I Love the quote THAT much! It really applies to artistic instincts........does it speak to you???  

Upon Learning the Challenge....
I went around the house humming and singing this song..........from years ago!!! If your under 60 you might not remember it.......the way music USED to be LOL!!

  3. I love how you have paid homage to the Poetry in Motion with your wonderful quote, beautiful artwork and brilliant song! So funny you were humming this song, it has great lyrics and I keep singing it too ... lol πŸ˜‰. The quote is incredibly meaningful and is one of my favourites, for me it reminds me to be brave and take chances, if you want a life that you love, you need to persue it and (yes you might even fall at times but eventually) you'll fly. Your page is enchanting with the beautiful colours, butterflies and little girl with wings - I love it! It illustrates the quote perfectly and is definitely a piece I'd like on my wall 😁. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Art Journal Journey and wishing you a happy new week! J 😊
