Writing in my art journal is getting more and more important to me these days. I’d like to share with you a page I created to commemorate a wonderful person who died of cancer at the age of 47. Despite the sad occasion, I managed to turn it into a bright and positive page, for that totally reflects his own state of mind. The idea for this page has been slumbering in my mind ever since Dan died two years ago, but I’m so glad I finally created this spread, for it helps me cope and I’m sure it will bring back many happy memories every time I’ll look at it.
I incorporated a photograph I took many years ago, but I blurred it a bit, for I don’t want to share anyone’s picture without their permission.
I’d like to enter this journal spread into a the following challenges:
- Try it on Tuesday: handwriting
- Inspiration avenue: hearts and trees
- Inspiration Journal: show it with words
The quote I used for my pages comes from a beautiful song called ”To each his storm’ by ‘Rome’:
If this journal spread inspires you in any way (the colours, the theme of nature/trees, your favourite song quote, the theme of commemoration/illness …) in creating your own, please feel free to post a link to your creation in my comments, so that I can have a look!
