Digital Art Journaling Love

I have been on a serious digital scrapbooking jag lately! Between my creative team work and and the AMAZING Digital Art Journaling class I’m taking… I’ve been cranking pages out left and right. I made six digital pages last week and I would love to share them with you today!

1: Treasure


I was at a loss on what to do with the prompt “Treasure” until I found this quote. Then it all came together. I planned the entire page around it and searched the web for brushes and images I could use. I don't normally use darker color schemes when I scrap, but I thought... why not step ALL of the way out of the box? LOL

2: Confidence (I See…)


Journaling: She knew this year would be different because when she looked in the mirror she saw confidence.

Confidence is also my one little word for 2012. I thought it would be fun to tie it in to the Digital Art Journaling project too. Fonts: Bebas and Angelic War.

3: Chaotic (Home)


I should probably explain the journaling on this page a little bit. Many of you know that Alexis has a mental illness, and she's gone through a really rough time. This page was a bit of scrappy therapy for me because I've really been struggling with the fact that our home doesn't feel much like the sanctuary it's supposed to be sometimes. We are praying really hard that things get better for her and us as a family soon.

4: Family


Have I mentioned that I'm having a blast in this class? I love it! I'm putting so much thought and symbolism into the pages that they're taking a bit longer. Not that I mind a bit, I'm loving the end products. This was my take on the "family" prompt. I followed Jessica's techniques but did my own thing design-wise.

5: Beautiful


The prompt for this page was "beautiful" and this is what I came up with. I've always loved the lyrics to the song "You Are Beautiful" from Christina Aguliera so I built the page around that theme.

6: Valentine


Jordan puts a ton of thought into choosing Valentines for her friends every year. I decided to use the Photoshop Friday #2 template to scrap about how her love of writing them.
