Art Journaling

Last year my dear friend Aino from Israel started an Art Journal Challenge at Designer Digitals. She is an amazing digital artist and her work has always been so inspiring to me. I had the privilege of spending quite a bit of time with her on the team trip a few weeks ago and she is just such a special person. I have loved the Art Journal Challenge becuase it has allowed me to create pieces that are way outside my normal "box". It is a way to express yourself... it is a way to try something different... it is a way to not have any "rules" and just play. I need that in my life because sometimes, I get too caught up in what I need to get documented and her challenge is the push I need to go somewhere I would have never gone just play.

Her challenge this week was to use Leonardo di Vinci's work as your inspiration. Here is the image that I created. This image contains the very first photo of my daughter Amelia and a photo that I took of her this week at the age of five. The changes have blown me away. Time is just moving way too quickly.

All products are from Designer Digitals and can be found here.
