Happy April everyone.
This month Eileen, from The Artful Crafter's blog, was supposed to be our host. She picked Inspired By as her theme. I know she was excited and working on some art for this challenge before her heart surgery because she left some big hints in a T Day post about being ready for an April art commitment.
Unfortunately, as many of you probably know, Eileen didn't make it through the surgery and recovery process. It's still a really sad thing, so we admins at Art Journal Journey decided to honor her by keeping her theme this month. Chris, also known as Pearshapedcrafting and I, Erika, also known as BioArtGal will both be hosting this month.
Hi, Chris here, you may remember how generous Eileen was in sharing her art secrets. She also started sharing aspects of her life in Mexico through her pictoral journal diaries.
She would always make a reference to the weather, there weren't many cloudy days, and she used to put a sun, some stencilled but mostly drawn so my page is full of sunshine, some copied from Eileens pages.
We're sure Eileen's spirit will be a part of your art this month. Share your inspired art with us. You may be inspired by someone or something from your life. You may be inspired by your dreams. Whatever inspires you, we'd love you to share your art journaling with us.
Thanks to Chris and Erika for this month to honor Eileen as a person and her art. I am sad and at the same time I am happy to see your beautiful art here again.ReplyDelete
So I dedicate this month to Eileen.
I wish you all a happy Easter and a creative month everyone, Elke
