Above is a two page layout in my January Journal. I'm still playing along with Misty Mawn's January Journal prompts. Last week was become your favorite artist. When I went searching the web for inspiration and ideas I went to Picasso first and some how ended up with Andy Warhol. I love the artwork by both of these artists. I wanted to do a page emulating Misty as I love her style but I'm just so intimidated by faces. When I think of Misty I see beautiful and sometime solemn faces in my minds eye. I went searching for inspiration again and found two paintings by Warhol that came together for me; Butterflies and Lips. These two paintings together spoke to me of "butterfly kisses". Soooo, I created the layout above. Wanting to make it my own I used collaged and stamped butterflies and I had so much fun looking through an InStyle magazine to cut out lips. Look closely and you will see there are both male and female lips shown.

I then journaled around the pages about my idea of "butterfly kisses".
kitty whiskers brushing my cheeks
a puppies wet nose
an early morning snuggle
a glance across a room
a forehead kiss
Next weeks theme is mixed media. Looking back at my previous pages it seems most of them already are mixed media so I will have to think on this one. I think her challenge is to stay with one medium each day. Will I stay with one medium for one page and another for the next? Will I be able to do this? We'll see...
Who inspired you to create something and make it your own today?
