Art Journal: Contrast

“A government which robs Peter to pay Paul
can always depend on the support of Paul.”
George Bernard Shaw


I'm feeling like I am making real progress in The Noticing Journal but yet there is still sooooo much more to go! These pages started with two photos {left = bubbles over our pool; right = road near our house} on a dark green backaground. The photos have a sort of black & white high contrast quality that I thought worked well with the quote from Brene Brown of Ordinary Courage. For images, I hunted through my ephemera stash and the Italian design magazines I brought back from our trip looking for things that reminded me of black & white, contrast, color, lights, light bulbs, lamps, candles, shadows, windows, texture and found some wonderfully fun things to build the look and feel of the page. I'm starting to use off white (titan buff) on my pages, which is really a neat change from titanium white.

The stark imagery and the off white work so well together. It has an ethereal quality that really appeals. I love the emotion it sparks.

I thought I had commented but it hasn't shown up. I was grabbing a link for a post I did and saw these pages and have fallen in love. So much so I just came back to look at them (And noticed my comment wasn't there). Love the quote, so appropriate for me right now as Happy Pills kick in. But the first thing that struck me was the colours and rawness of the pages. These are stunning.

I have a lot to catch up on, but wanted to comment on these and tell you how much these pages had touched me today. Thank you!!
