Style Challenge-November-Split Photo-Embrace The Fear
RJMJ, Nov 7, 2019
I Love This Challenge!...I Have Used Split Photos In Many Layouts...But For Me This Time Around...It Wasn't Just The 4-Way Split Photo...It Was About Telling A Story About Anxiety/Depression...How Life Is Full Of So Many Ups & Downs On A Daily Basis...I Hope You Can See That This Layout Took A Lot Of Thought To Create...Everything Was About Expression,Feelings & The Execution Of Just The Right Composition...I Think The Layout Pretty Much Speaks For Itself...There Is So Much Imagery & Meaning Behind Every Piece I Added To This Layout...The Colors That I Chose...Each Flower...Each WA...The Use Of Circles...The Brightness/Darkness Of The Flowers...The Bee...But Also Mixed With The Dark Blacks & Greys & The Whites Also...It Is Soooo!!!....Personal For Me...It Speaks Volumes About Living With This Difficult & Challenging Condition...This Layout Seems To Explain/Put Into Perspective...The Trials & Tribulations That I/Anyone Who Suffers Daily With This Condition That Often Dictates How Each Day Will Go...But On The Other Side Of All The Struggles...There Is Always Light On The Other Side...We Must Never Forget This...When Everything Seems Hopeless Or Your Worst Day Ever...Yet Again...Someone/Something Comes Along To Brighten Your Day & Give You A Different/Better Perspective...And Help You Out Of The Darkness & So You Can Go Further Into The Light...

      This is awesome! The partially hidden photo and the beautiful flowers over the top. I hope it is helping you to pour all of your thoughts and feelings into your art :beat
      That black BG with the purple is very dramatic and the way you get your emotions onto the page is amazing!!! Hugs :)

      really expressive. I like how the darkness gives way to the flowers as you rise up the page.

      Rhonda, this is amazing in it's beauty for the page,m the visuals, the symbolism, the passion and the translation of feelings is so spot on (as you ALWAYS do!!!) but it goes beyond the page, it goes to the passion you also have and give with explaining your page (and in general always) explaining how we deal with our everyday when the efforts are so stressing...and you give us (I know isn't just me) that way to feel and know we are not alone......love how you turned this page into a powerful art journal piece, the pieces you used and the overall result...... I will be coming back.... I am behind with everything as I am very slow now, but getting back int the rhythm.... from another sister soul who feels almost your same path....... HUGE HUGGGZZZZ
      and Thank you so much for playing with us!!!![​IMG]
