A Relaxed Life

A Relaxed Life
jazzmatazz, Apr 19, 2018
I have really gotten onto an art journaling kick of late, but instead of being grungy, I like my journal pages to be more like illustrations. I have been reflecting on the hectic pace of my family's lives of late, and I realized I need some time to relax. Well, that isn't possible in the near-term, so I thought I would create a scene in which it would be peaceful and a joy to relax. Viola! This layout resulted ...

Thank you so much for looking!

      This is gorgeous. I also have gotten into this AJ. I love the lady - I haven't seen her in the store.

      This is just so soft and dreamy. Love the diagonal title work and the way it guides the eye towards the subject. Such a relaxing scene, and so peaceful. The sentiment of relaxing and letting life wash over you is so appropriate here. Love!

      you know, one of the things that get me about the perception of Art Journal is that some people see it as having to be something dramatic and processing pain.... I LOVE making fun ones or something like you have composed here!!!! love the scene you composed! gorgeous colors, beautiful doll, love the detail of those lines giving dimension to the background!!

      I love the non-grungy art journaling too and you created such a very cool scene and place here!!!! It's very peaceful and I keep going back up to look at the different details! The birds.. the butterflies, all the little hidden things that if you "stop to let it wash over you" make you feel so much better! Gorgeous colors and I could definitely see this printed and hung up somewhere!
