My personal art journal page - Tell through art

Hello and welcome my lovely friends 

I am so glad that you are here. Today I want to show you a art journal page as I have done in connection with Dina Wakleys "Show us your MEdia" challenge as of August 16, it's about showing what you say to yourself. And this is my personal  art journal page with my sayings:

This page is in my wonderful Dina Wakley media journal (which I love), and it is burlap. I used my scribble sticks in colours Blackberry and Black to scribble around the midle, this to illustrate my surroundings and thoughts and feelings from time to time. 

I have sewn the card in the middle and left the top open so I could use it as a pocket. And in my pocket I have another card with my sentence. I have made a hole in the top and threaded on a ribbon as I have colored myself. The wonderful colours on my biggest card is Tim Holt's Distress Oxide. All of the stamps is from Rubber Dance, and the mushrooms is colored with Faber Castell pens.

 I say it to my self all the time - "Today I choose to be happy", why is that you would maybe ask. Why exactly that sentence? Well, thats because  I have and have had many challenges in life and if I can not keep my mood up, if I do not manage to hold on my good mood then everything ends. This art journal page is wery personal for me, but I do not believe in secrecy and to hide things. Why not be open and honest? 

I suffer from Myalgic Encephalopathy, and it is a disease with many challenges without going into it in detail. But those of you who have the same disease or have any close who suffer from the same know what I'm talking about. 

That's why the sentence to my self: "Today I choose to be happy".




Thank you so much for stopping by. If you have any questions, no matter what, do not hesitate to ask. I respond with pleasure.


I wish you a wonderful and creative day!

Hugs, Anita
