Yesterday evening, I actually managed to create two different digital art journaling pages. Now I am only one page behind on my digital art a day challenge. Since July 18, I have created six pages. I hope to be caught up at the end of today. I have to admit it feels good being creative every day.
This first page is one I plan to do every Sunday. For a long time, I’ve been interested in bible art journals. Most of the ones I’ve seen have been using actual pages in a bible, but not all. I’ve finally decided to create one for myself. I’ll be calling it a scripture art journal as I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and we have more than one book of scripture. I am also going to include uplifting quotes in my journal. I am beginning with a scripture from the Book of Mormon, Alma 5:26.
This was a fairly easy layout to put together. I began by taking a look at saved scriptures in my notebook at LDS.org. Once I had the scripture, I used a blending mode to put the text on top of a solid paper and then used a paper tear action to give the scripture bit the appearance of being torn from a page. (This is what I love about digital scrapbooking. I don’t think I’d ever tear a page found in a physical book of scripture. Making it look like I did in Photoshop, not an issue.). I then layered several pieces of ephemera underneath the scripture and added a title. The hardest part? Letting myself stop adding pieces underneath the scripture.
My next page was created simply because I wanted to play with the July Mixed Media Monthly kit that I receive as part of my monthly subscription. I was in love with the bright colors from the moment I saw the kit. Totally reminded me of growing up in the 80s when neon was so popular.
I actually did not have a plan for the page when I began other than using my new kit. When I saw the word art in the kit, I knew that would be the journaling for the page. This is another page that was fairly simple to create. I blended one paper on top of another. I then added several elements and painty pieces to the page and used the Underlying Layer slider to make the pieces look a little more realistic (more painted on). The last thing I did was recolor the word art.
I appreciate your making it to the end of my post. Thank you for stopping by. Until next time, don’t forget to document your memories.
