Today's art journalling is inspired by love, and the sentiment sewn onto the page reads:
Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but looking together in the same direction.There is a little story behind this. Over the past few months I have seen love from an entirely new perspective. And this perhaps also comes from time (eighteen years together) and experience (of the make-or-break variety). After a very long time, we are now two people looking in the same direction.
That is not to say one must have the same interests and personality as their partner: M won't be rushing into the craft room to start painting and stamping any time soon. More simply, I have found that love grows from an awareness that differences can be complementary, providing they are used for the same end-goal.
As I am feeling so reflective today, I am a little inspired to put more themes into my art journal pages. Hence the 'Inspired by' post title. I think a lot of recent life experiences are coming through in my art. Why not write about them?
