get messy: an art journal challenge | 17

Get Messy | thoughtful |

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.
