My plan for a 30 day “digital art a day” challenge has not worked out as I had originally anticipated. Between the two political conventions and helping my husband with his job search, I haven’t had the time I’d like to work on pages. Plus, I have been lacking some scrapping mojo. I’ll begin my challenge again in the near future. While the challenge may be on hold, I do have a page to share with you.
More than a week ago, while working on my lesson for the six year olds I teach in Primary, I was inspired to create a new page for my scripture art journal. This time, I wanted to create a page based on “Love One Another” as found in John 13:34 – 35. Here is the page I created.
While I’ve had the original idea for more than a week, I found putting the page together took several hours. My original color concept was a combination of red and tan. But I just was not in love with that page no matter what I added or took away from the page.
To be honest, this page will probably never be considered one of my favorites. But I was able to finally come up with a page I like. Let me share what I did to create the page. The base paper for this page was a neutral tan with paint added in both black and white. I added two papers on top of the original. A red one to which I applied a hard mix blending mode and a blue and green page using the Darker Color blending mode. I then added some paint elements to which I added a white color overlay. The heart elements were recolored from their original kraft color to the color blue. The torn scripture element was created using a kraft colored paper and paper tear actions. My final elements were stitches and a heart scatter that I recolored. I used three different alphas to add “Love One Another” to the page.
While I have put my challenge on hold, I hope to be back with some additional pages this week. I still have a couple of pages that I created late last month that I haven’t shared yet. Plus I want to create a couple of additional pages.
Until next time, don’t forget to document your memories.
