Goodness, I have not sat down to do an art journal page in so long. This was so fun. I used a quote from Dr. Henrietta C. Mears. I have used her quotes before, and I will certainly use a lot more. :) And did you notice the hymn I chose to use in the heart? It was perfect for the quote I thought.
The color inspiration came from a catalog cover I got in the mail the other day. I am so glad I saved the cover because I really love this color combo. I will need to use these colors again.
The notebook I used is a Moleskine plain notebook. The pages are really thin so I had to glue 4 pages together to get extra thickness. The reason I used this is because I am giving this to a friend, and she can use the book as a journal. There will only be this one painted two-page spread inside. The rest of the pages are hers to use as she desires. I hope she likes it. :)
Well, I hope you enjoy today's bit of inspiration. Have a blessed Sunday!
