Two Art Journal Pages

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.

Alma 5:26

Created using A Little Bird Told Me from Captivated Visions, Layered Tissue Pastels from Anna Aspnes, The Alpha Files No. 20 from Krystal Hartley and Paper Tear Actions from Mommyish.

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.

Inhale Love Exhale Beauty

Created using the July 2016 Mixed Media Monthly kit from Little Butterfly Wings, Lynn-Marie, Nancie Rowe-Janitz and Paula Kesselring

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.
