Mind. Body. Soul. (Art Journaling)


Okay, so I guess I lied. I thought I was onto the next word in the series of journal prompts from sweet Leslie's Mind. Body. Soul. e-course, but for some reason, it seems that Renew was not done with me. . . 

Here are two more pages in the almost-complete journal:

"Renew"

Scrapbook materials enhanced with glitter gel pen and ink

Martha Stewart Glue pen and glitter on neck and lips


"Gave 'em all away"

Background of decorative paper, stamps and acrylic

Collage using pieces of Kendra's baby clothes

Page tab created with a baby label and accessory

That's it! Now I'm off to create the final pages for Anxiously Engaged . . . whew . . .

I love your long-necked girls with words on their necks...they're beautiful. The glitter adds that something special.

I so cannot believe I didn't get here first. Boo. Um, I am off to look at all these gorgeous details and see if I can read anything hidden! How scandalous!!!

Daniele Valois said...

ok, you may have given them all away, but now a new journey is ahead. Time to renew!

I love your art journal ... I've been creating mine for years and years ... it somehow gets us in touch with our feelings ... some of which may be too painful at times.

Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful art.

Happiness to all.

Heather Henry said...

Sooo love this one. She has a very gorgeous face and the glittery accents add a lot to it. I think Renew is something we all need, from time to time. A fresh start is always good for the soul. Very beautiful journal. I hope when you complete it, you will put them all on a post so we can see them all together. Beautiful.
:) Have a glorious day!

I love the way you do your faces, and how you color them. Really striking. And your baby clothes page, how sweet and touching. What a great way to use them and keep at least little pieces...

Jenny said...

Oh Kristin... BEAUTIFUL pages... I love the color... and I especially LOVE your gorgeous girl... and the word renew on her neck... the green lips... such fabulous work... pinning that for sure my friend...

Hugs

Netty said...

Jen @Sadie Inspired said...

GOR-geous again! I love the sparkles. Nothing better than to renew with a little bling. :) I really like the color combo too. Super sweet idea to use bits of Kendra's clothes. I have used notes & drawings - but, baby clothes...brilliant! Have a happy rest of Monday. xoxoxo

Carin said...

What?! You're going to give me a heart attack! I gasped for air so hard when I saw that first renew spread with the giant flower next to it! Holy moly, that stunning! LOVE the other spread to.

And now I need a lie down lol.

Carin said...

Okay, I just went back and had a proper look at the second spread since I was so overwhelmed by the first I didn't look at it in detail... :( I'm not ready to do that yet, I am not surprised it hurt.

Diane said...

I always smile when I visit you--the colors are delicious!!
And what a cool idea--using Kendra's baby clothes--love that!!

missy k said...

I love the vibrant colours for 'Renew' - the MS glitter pens look scrummy!

Oooh I love your sweet journal pages... I love that you used Kendra's fabric...

at least you will always have these pages to look back on and smile at
