kind words…

this is my second offering for Art Journal Journey’s DOORS theme this month…

kind words (1)

I came across a sweet image of a girl in my stash printed to fill an 8 x 10 piece of paper so I decided to tear the image in half and glue some book text underneath the image…

kind words (2)

a bit of sanding and light coloring with chalk pencils (each page measures 5.5 x 6.5 inches)…

kind words

speaking of kind words I want to thank you very much for your visit and support…

  11. What a great quote! Do you collect them in a special book and select the most appropriate one for the your journal page of the moment? I would be so interested to discover how you go about collecting a stash of inspirational quotes for journalling because you always come up with wonderful words. I love this spread. The image of the girl is lovely and your technique – as always is superb, lovely subtle colouring that truly creates atmosphere. Your pages are just so remarkable; I am always so delighted I discovered your uplifting art! Julie Ann xx

  14. HI Patty,
    I’ve been away from blogging for a bit and just looked at all your posts from the last few weeks. Wow! I find them so inspiring. My creative muse has been missing lately, and I think I need to just go do some free-form art journaling to get her back. Love all your pages and your twinkle cards are great.

    And of course, I love that sign post.

  32. Such imaginative use of that sweet image. She definitely has a story to tell us.
    Patty, do you jot down quotes as and when you come across them? Many years ago I did this and wondered if it was a habit you had because you always have the most perfect quote for your art.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Wishes
    Lynne

  33. This is so lovely & inspiring Patty, & a wonderful quote!

  34. what truly beautiful pages and words Patty. Very heartwarming as I know all of your art is. Wha???? Only what-14 miles to Paris-France??? I can SO do that :):)

  35. That final quote is wonderful, as is your peek-a-boo girl page.

  36. Gorgeous pages Patty!!

  37. Lovely quote – so true!

    I love the background text with talk of apology and bosom and marriage …. It looks like one of those very tame romance novels of the turn of the century.

  38. (That was me Patty … Kimmie)

  39. A gold sentence! Lovely spread, Patty, the girl looks straight at you with those eyes!

  40. Wow, gorgeous spread!

  41. OMG Patty, your journal pages just get better and better, love your arty style…you have such a talent!..Hugs Jan x

  42. Hello Patty,
    une douce enfant qui se cache derrière une porte ? Est-ce un jeu ? A-t-elle peur ? Veut-elle dissimuler quelque chose ? va-t-elle arriver à ouvrir cette porte ? Allons-nous découvrir le jardin d’Eden derrière ? Tant de questions qu’on peut se poser. Qu’en est-il ma chère Patty ?
    L’ensemble est beau et romantique, les couleurs douces, mais la cassure de l’enfance est bien présente.
    Bizzzzz

    I wish you a wonderful first Advent :-)
