Greetings! I am so excited….I’ve made my first Art Journal page of 2013! It’s been ages since I’ve made an art journal page. I really need to make more, as it I really love doing it. The page I am sharing with you today features Rick St. Dennis’ Euro Boy with Hearts.
I had originally intended to put this boy on a card. But then I got inspired by Megan (from Dilly Beans), as she made an art journal page that I loved. I colored him while hanging out with Phoenix, and this image just reminded me of him….I am not going to go into details, but the Euro Boy is giving pure love…just like my boy. And his expression is something that hit home. Sorry for the lack of details, but just know that my boy emotes love no matter what. Even if he isn’t saying a word. Hence, the switch in ideas to a journal page.
I colored the Euro Boy with watercolor markers and alcohol markers. And I added a wee bit of Distress Ink to the edge of the paper.
I added some assorted scraps, and even a foam heart from my kids massive collection. My sentiment reads: “There is no love greater than the love of a child.” Ain’t that the truth. I have been lucky to love and have been loved by wonderful people in my life, but nothing compares to the love my children give me. I am submitting this for the Smeared and Smudged challenge of “Something New.” My something new is my image. I think this is a Facebook only challenge, as I didn’t see it on the forum. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
This is really precious, Alison! Love the image and the pure love that went into this page. Fabulous! Maybe I'll try some journaling again. xxD

Great page. I really like the boy on the card. He reminds me of somebody, I wonder who that could be?
