    Welcome to the Art Journaling Monthly Muse!

    Muse:
    verb: to reflect deeply on something
    noun: the source of artistic inspiration

    Hi everyone! I am posting in Kimberlee's behave since she is having some internet issues, hopefully she will be back for WEEK #2!

    In January we introduced a little taste of our new Monthly Muse Challenges. In simple words, 4 weeks = UP TO 4 challenges to help you dig into your soul or just have fun. This month Kimberly picked a very special MUSE....

    Our Muse for this month: Mother Earth/Earth Mother​

    So this is month our first inspiration is... Female strength

    Here is mine:

    Available still are the template set from @Scrapping with Liz if you decide to go the "Skinny" route, but of course you don't have to you could make a full page. If you do decide to go for the Skinnies but haven't got the template from last month, you can find the templates available HERE. In addition @cfile created one cool triangle template that you could use (Christa's awesome template is HERE on PSD- let us know if you need any other format!).

    Once you are ready to share your page make sure you added to the Art Journaling Gallery HERE and then post it in this thread. To do so, copy the 3rd link on the right hand side of your LO, the one that reads :
    Share BB Code:
    and just paste the copied link into your text
    in the post DO NOT use any icons, no need to click on anything, just copy on the link, then paste it here in your text! :) Thanks to Margaret @londoncuppa for calling attention to this!
    :)
    We will draw a winner at the beginning of next month, even more incentives for your inspiration! You can use any products in The Lilypad store, make sure you follow our gallery guidelines. Pages are due last day of the month.

    If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask!!!

    Love the motto and inspiration. The third photo reminds me of Arcimboldo. Off to go and decide on a format.

    Ohhhh what a wonderful, WONDERFUL subject and muse this is. I think I may have to go full layouts for this one because it's such a powerfully needed message to so many. Thinking cap on and super excited about it!
