Julie Ann

This prompt was easy for me because I love being alone. I don’t mind it. I like the peace and quiet, being able to get my art done. I could see myself enjoying the peace and relishing the natural beauty. I love to write and I could see myself doing a lot of writing, in busy solitude! Oh, the joy!

I knew immediately how I wanted my page to look. My page was inspired by one of my favorite art journalers and illustrators: Anahata Katkin.  She describes her style, “A lot of my artwork is built up using faces and portrait style focus and then I just build onto it using things from the environment or fashion to inspire the rest.”

I also knew I wanted a tropical look and I did that with color.

    Oh wow Julie Anne, I am so sorry to hear about your situation. What a shock it must be for you. I wanted to tell you how beautiful your page is with all of its minty-greenness and whimsical and floral wonderfulness. You so inspired me to do a page. Thank you.
