I love belonging to internet groups as I get to see lots of wonderful work created by artists from around the world. I joined a new (to me) group about six months ago and have had fun joining in on the swaps. By the end of the month a small group of us will be completing art journal pages. Each person chose both a theme and an orientation (horizontal or vertical) with the goal of binding the pages into a book and adding our own journaling to the pages sent to us by our partners.
For the first half of December I created a 5"X7" double sided page with the theme of quotes about words. Words!!!!! I love words and quotes, so this was great fun. I had trouble selecting only two quotes about words ---- there are so many really good ones. But I settled on the two below. Of course, one is by Emily Dickenson -- she always could say so much in so few words. And I had never come across the other quote, but it is something I truly believe in.
The page is created on watercolor paper with color added using Distress Inks by Tim Holtz. I stamped a few images, added some purchased embellishments, and computer generated the quotes.
I really like how the pages turned out and was so happy to receive a very nice e-mail from the recipient.
