"Live in the sunshine,
swim the sea,
drink the wild air."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I'm not sure if it's the colors or the images, but this reminds me of walking along a chilly beach, collecting shells. The quote is amazing -- I like how it fits with how I see the page.
Most of us create art journal pages ultimately for ourselves (or maybe I'm naive and many create their pages to sell, I'm not sure) so it's crucial to "get something" out of each page. Get something from the experience of playing with paints and materials, get thoughts/feelings out of your head and onto the page, get inspired by the finished page... what do you "get" out of your pages?
