Artists in Blogland Challenge #4

Headline Prompt:  Security:  What makes you feel safe and secure?  What rattles your sense of security?  Where do you go for comfort and refuge?
Color Prompt: 
Cool colors (blues, greens, violets, etc.) 
Quote Prompt: You can't make a place for yourself in the sun if you keep taking refuge under the family tree.  Helen Keller
 Tips for making your own journal page:
*  paint using ink on a piece of paper... cut out and adhere to your page
*  use painted papers to cut out and glue on your collage (I used Gelli plates)
*  type out a quote on your computer and put it in your journal
*  cut out a phrase from a children's book and glue in your collage
*  make a mini-photo to glue in your art journal.  Here the little photo is a picture I took on the road.  I altered it using a photo altering program online ( is a good one).  Then I put a whole bunch of photos into an 8x10" collage on and ordered the collage.  I ended up with a bunch of little photos that I could use in my art journal.  

Keep your eye on Artists in Blogland, because on Monday, I am the guest artist for the challenge!  Yeah, I know, I run the group, but it is still exciting to be asked by our hosts to be the artist for a prompt. :)  Thanks, Jessica and Carolyn!

Love the bright blue against the black and white, and your lovely tendrils really drew my eye around the page! Also, I clicked over to your art prints on the side bar -- wonderful work! I particularly like "Here Now." Just beautiful. xo

I love all the different thicknesses of lines you used from the thin and thick blue strips & the thin black swirly lines and thick black lines in your designs and edging! Your gelli paper is perfect in this piece! So glad you shared this with Fall Fearless and Fly!
