Find your voice

When I first discovered art journaling I was drawn in by Teesha Moore's artwork.  The colors she uses are fun and I love how she alters images and magazine clippings.  I decided to do a page inspired by her asthetic.  I really enjoyed the project.  I tried not to think too much as I worked.  If something caught my eye, I would cut it out and place it onto the page in different places until I liked the way it looked.  I finished with paint pens.  One thing that I have really been working on this past year is finding my own "voice" or asthetic.  I like doing pieces inspired by others, but I really want to find my own style.  I know that if I keep working at it I will find my artistic voice.


  1. I love this piece, and I wonder if this is one that begins to show your voice? I am primarily a writer, and know first hand the challenge of unfolding into one's own voice...and that voice changes and ripens and continues to shed for the continuing growth to appear in your work.

    I love this piece. Beautiful!

    So great to meet you via Art Every Day Month!

  2. I love colors on your journal page. Like how you tried not to think so much. I find when I overthink I don't like the final results. How funny that if I turn off my "brain" I find my art much more enjoyable and the end result more pleasing.

  3. Lovely page, I can't resist adding white dots a lot too, thanks so much for sharing, much love Jennibellie xx
