This week has been a pretty busy one for me.  My participation in the Ultimate Blog Challenge.  It’s been a good kind of busy, but I haven’t had as much time this week for layout creation.  So I only have two pages to share with you today.  But I think they are both kind of interesting and I hope you enjoy them.

My first page for today was created for the Show Us Your SHINE Creative Challenge at Scrapbook Graphics.  This challenge required you to use pieces of three different kits.  The big challenge in this for me was that it was an Autumn color palette.  I live in South Florida and we have only have two seasons, tourist and hurricane.  Not a lot of pictures with Fall colors.  Thank goodness for digital art journaling.  That gave me a fun way to use the three kits even though I didn’t have any photos.  I am pretty happy with the way this page turned out.

When You Fall

Created using You Are Unstoppable and Mish Mash Blend Me Stash #3 from Captivated Visions, You Are Optimistic from Studio Rosey Posey and You Are Wise from Tangie Baxter Fonts: Got Heroin, For The Hundredth Time and Courtney Dorkling

The above layout definitely has an art journaling feel to it. This next layout, has a little different feel to it but I still think it is more art journaling than digiscrapping. I guess you’ll have to decide for yourself if you agree.

The inspiration for this layout actually came while reading blogs as part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I was reading a blog post on the Inner Affluence blog from Evelyn Kalinosky that had 20 Rumi quotes. As soon as I saw the quote shown in the layout, I was immediately inspired and I knew I would have to create a digital art journaling page for the quote. I’m not sure the final results are exactly what I envisioned. It’s a little different from what I normally do. But I think it conveys the desired feeling. I hope so anyway.
