get messy: an art journal challenge | 17

Get Messy | thoughtful | momentstolivefor.com

This week just some simple pages. Instead of focusing on a word or text, the design of the magazine photo was my starting point. I wanted to save these pictures and what better place than the art journal.

The text of the last page says: home sickness – only when you’re not around. Doesn’t sound so nice in English. In German it’s a little bit more poetic ‘Heimweh’. The same as ‘Fernweh’, there’s no real translation of this word in English. Wanderlust is far too weak. It’s the longing, the desire of traveling far away places, not just the appetite to do so.

    I love the thoughtful page with the lines. Perfection. And the way you have put the photo of the boy over two pages. I like that a lot.

    Oh I love that you wanted to save these photos and so you thought to art journal them. I was thinking the same thing this morning about a few magazine pages I saw. That last photo is adorable. I can totally see that little squirrel say “Heimweh, fox, Heimweh” =]

    So beautiful. I love the simplicity. I think a page with only a photo and no words would be a harder challenge for me than our normal prompts, but Im so in love with yours!

    I get really inspired by photos I find in magazines all the time! I’m glad someone else finds it easy to base their pages off of it. These look really great. I love the color scheme. It reminds me of being at sea.
