Points of Two - Week One...

Points of Two is a year-long exploration into the differences in all of us. We aim to journal focusing on the same idea, but create very different pages – two points of view, two different styles, brought together to showcase the idea that there is no wrong way to journal and everything you create is art. Join us as we journal the year, creating and exploring the space between and discovering how small that gap really is. The "two" are:  Me and Kira!

Today, Kira and I focused on our surroundings and how they differ!  I spent some time last week at the beach with my sister and her hubby.  January is a wonderful month in Florida as our average temperature is around 70 degrees.  Although we had a cold front come through a couple of weeks ago, the beach was still very relaxing and gorgeous! I created my journal page using digital items.  The paper was created with stencils and paint and then scanned into my computer.  The photo was blended with the paper and I then added doodles, labels and other items to finish my page. 

Visit Kira's blog to read more about her journal page and how she approached it!

Each Friday, Kira and I will be sharing our artwork with the 'Points of Two' project. We will be posting our idea for the week on our blog's around Monday, so tune in and play along with us! 

Have a  blessed day!

This is a great idea. I am looking forward to seeing the different persepectives of you and Kira on the topics and the very different, but equally beautiful journaling styles that the two of you have

Beautiful work on your page and I love the idea you and Kira have going on here - so neat to see others takes on the same thing. I look forward to seeing your future pages!

What a cool idea! I'm sure some interesting juxtapositions, and similarities, will be revealed. I'll look forward to seeing more of the pages as the project goes on. Thanks for sharing this interesting journey.

what i love about roben-marie's pg is all the layers & shapes. the layers created what looks like stenciled paint the circle with the words around the center & scribbled lines reaching across. then the layers of shadowed photos. was this all created digitally? i'm such a hands on girl. i have digital drama. then kira's pg the messiness of it. that practiced messy writing. i'm dying to know what pen or pencil she used to create it.
