Shapes of sweet lovin in my Art Journal

As you continue to send out love, the energy returns to you in a regenerating spiral… As love accumulates, it keeps your system in balance and harmony. Love is the tool, and more love is the end product.Sara Paddison

I’m back with the heart symbol as expected. I was deep into it about this time last year too. My Art Journal got some sweet lovin’ yesterday, as it the word for the day was just that in Sophie’s and my Diptych Photography Project: Love.

How do you photograph love?

Maybe like this?

I’m having such a fun time with this project, surprising myself with my creative take on it. iLove u I enjoy playing each day. I enjoy the challenge. I enjoy loading the photos into my computer choosing a favorite. Just one. That is so difficult to me. Even today when the word was sky and the sky was gray rain (and not even a cloud visible, just boring gray) I did manage to take a photo I like! When you request something from yourself you have to oblige, right? And I’m asking my family every night at dinner what they would “do” with the word and then telling them about my idea. I was thinking of how important it is to love yourself when I took my photo #9 yesterday, but now when I look at my self-portrait it looks like it’s me offering love to the world. Both truths I like.


Anyway, this post will be my entry for crusade #27: shape up! which is about finding a shape you like and exploring it in your art journal. Play with it, duplicate it, stamp it, carve it, stencil it and so on. Obsession is a good thing according to Michelle Ward. but mostly it’s a thought, an idea I have.

I want to create a new art journal, using watercolor papers just as the first Art Journal I made, as I’ve mentioned now a couple of times. But I’m thinking as the heart month gets closer I will dedicate it to one of my favorite shapes; the (♥) heart, the symbol of love!

    your to funny! ha! great shape, huh? I wish.

    obsessing is a good thing if you’re not constantly doing it I think. Or being obsessed with just one thing, that’s not so healthy. But as we’re multi-obsessed I think we can be calm for now…

    Thanks for the ♥-felt comments girls! I do heart my art journal.
