Hearts


As many of you loyal visitors to this monthly blog know, when Bleubeard and I took it over in  November, I immediately looked for help.  I got it in the form of my dear friend Yvonne.  By the end of the year, we were both feeling we needed even more help.  That was when we asked Erika, who many of you know as BioArtGal, to join us.   This assures Art Journal Journey will be on steady footing for years to come  and will continue to be a challenge blog you have come to enjoy and love.  We now introduce you to our latest co-moderator, our dear friend Erika.  Please make her feel welcome.

This month Bleubeard and I, Elizabeth are your hosts.  As many of you know, Bleubeard is the face of our blog and I create the art. You will find us at Altered Book Lover.   


Hearts


Since it's February, our theme is Hearts.  Who doesn't love hearts?  Even I, the person who can't draw or sketch anything (and don't care to, either), can draw a heart.  This is the simplest of all shapes, yet we need one to live.  This might be why we often use them in our art. 

I created this mosaic to show you various ways to use hearts in your art this month.  I'm sure you will come up with many more. 

And PLEASE remember to abide by our rules.  Only artwork larger than approximately 10 x 15 cm or 4 x 6 inches will be accepted.  Journal pages, altered book pages, fabric pages, canvases, and digital art are all acceptable.
