Wholehearted Journey

My Art Journal for 2010 (documenting my wholehearted journey) is beginning to take shape:

Cover Page

2010 Intentions

On Happiness

Contemplating weight issues.

Each of these pages is accompanied by a bunch of journaling - some of which has already appeared here in my blog, some of which is private, since this is really just for me.  But the genre of art journaling is totally new to me and so far I'm finding it interesting to try to convey a feeling with color and images and the way things are put together. I know my happiness page does convey that feeling for me, but what do you think of this one?  Does it adequately convey frustration with weight loss goals?

Wow! Love this :-) Art journaling is new to me but I love the whole idea of it, and it looks great to me - love the linking of 'mend' to the sewing elements, and the play on words; there's enough 'darkness' in the page to get across the negative feelings too, I think... I like it, anyway! x

It definitely conveys the frustration and unhappiness of that topic. I'm impressed with how well it does. And, it's all too familiar. I look forward to seeing this journal develop.

As always, you do a superior job of conveying your feelings in an artistic manner. I am in awe of the things you are able to do with digi scraping. Not interested in doing it myself, but love seeing what you do so well. Keep it coming!
