Kickstart Your Art: Day 2 "The Journey"

Today is the second day of a Smeared and Smudged Forum challenge, Kickstart Your Art!, an Art Journal Every Day challenge.  We are given a prompt every morning and then have 24 hours to produce a journal page.

Today's prompt was to use a song or poem to inspire our page.  I have chosen Mary Oliver's poem, "The Journey," one of my favorite poems.

I didn't have enough room to letter the whole poem, so I am quoting the first and last parts here.

The details:
  1. Acrylic paints in the background
  2. Tree stamp from this plate by I Brake for Stamps
  3. Tree colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
  4. Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk Inks
  5. Hand-lettered with calligraphy pens


  1. Love the soft colors and the beautiful poem. The tree is gorgeous. So fun to see your page today!~kim

  2. Beautiful page! Your lettering is so good! Thanks for playing along with our Kickstart Your Art Challenge for Day 2!:)
