Quote Junkie

I am a sucker for a good quote. I find myself jotting them down, taking pictures of them with my phone, etc. I do it so often that I started to maintain them in a little journal on the night stand next to my side of the bed. I even write down passages from a good book, a quote found on Facebook, Pinterest, etc. And sometimes I'll even write down something funny that was said during dinner. But what to do with all of those quotes? As someone who is still a little uneasy with spilling my guts across a journal page, I have found it is much easier to just use a quote to represent something I'm feeling or going through at the moment. I often create some "secret" journaling as a base layer and then cover it up with layers and layers of collage, paint, etc. The quote then represents what is now hidden. This piece is very much inspired by Teesha Moore's art journaling style. I then took a photo of the final image and further embelished the digital image. What are some of your favorite quotes?

  1. Lovely! I like the "secret" technique for private journalling you describe.
