Art Journal 2014 - February

February 2014
Art Journal
 
February is already gone by the wayside and we're well into March.  I considered not posting these anymore, but I think posting them will help me find the creative direction I'm chasing with this project.  Hidden secrets always seem to show up in photos where we see them more clearly than we can in real.
 
 
As was the case previously in January, I started the month with an artfully created journal page by chrisg62.  To that side I added loads of little hearts in various sizes and styles and I created that cute little tracing paper house.  I'm very lacking so far with the pages I've done trying to compliment Chris' artwork. 
 
At the end of the month, I wanted to continue the page with March.  But nothing I could come up with seemed to fit.  So I really junked it up with a bunch of stamping at the bottom to fill in the space.
 
The only good thing about the bottom of that second page is that I get another chance at it with March.....AND every month following that.  LOL 
 
Eventually I will find my direction.  Trial and error always gets me where I'm going.

I think I like the looks of this month the best of all…it's so colorful and fun! I always think you can't outdo yourself and then you prove me wrong. Anxious to see March!

I like these jolly pages very much. Fascinating to read about the bits of your life you are willing to share. I like the pink bird and the lady with the hat and the pink roses with the green leaves, very pretty. Also like the sweet pink house. It's a good way to keep a diary, one sentence a day more or less.

Annie your February looks great to me! But I do know that seeing it in a photo is like standing back and squinting or using a reducing glass where you can see it with a different perspective. Only YOU know what's in your head and what you might want to add to this piece though, lol!!!!

Annie, I would love to have your lack of direction! Your style just knocks my socks off and I do love it!! But I think you know that. February is a shear delight now let me find my magnifying glass to see what you have been up to!

Loved your calendar pages, I especially liked reading your schedule. It always sounds like so much more fun when someone else is doing it! Take care, keep creating.

Keep at it, and keep showing us! You are inspiring those of us who whine about not having enough time to pursue our passions! :)

Annie, you make the most amazing monthly journal pages. I find I like the busyness of your February pages (and the colours! plus you can't miss with adding hearts and stamps... :o). Love it!
