Journal on Monday: week 98

Hi lovely JoMers!
This is a special edition JoM, as I combined it with the new challenge we're having up on the Mixed Media Place blog. It's also the penultimate JoM before the 100th episode! More info on the 100th celebration (with the date!!) at the end of this post.
But first: today's JoM: the challenge on the Mixed Media Place blog is to be inspired by George Michael's 'Freedom' music video. I watched the music video several times and looked up the meaning of the song: why did George write this song, what did he want to say?
I let it all sink in for a moment and the thing that came back to mind every time I thought about it, were the explosions in the video!
So I picked colors reminding me those explosions :)))

Coucou les doux JoMeurs!
C'est un JoM édition spéciale aujourd'hui, puisque je le combine avec le nouveau challenge que nous lançons sur le blog Mixed Media Place. C'est aussi l'avant dernier épisode avant le 100ième! Plus d'info sur la fête du 100ième (ainsi que la date!!) à la fin de ce message.
Mais d'abord le JoM du jour: le challenge sur Mixed Media Place est de se laisser inspirer par la vidéo 'Freedom' de George Michael. J'ai commencé par regardé la vidéo plusieurs fois et j'en ai recherché la signification sur le net: qu'est-ce que George voulait nous dire par le biais de cette chançon?
J'ai pris un peu de temps pour y réfléchir et l'image qui me revenait chaque fois était les explosions que l'on voit dans la vidéo!
Donc je suis parti sur des couleurs me rappelant ces explosions :)))

The video.   La vidéo.

See you on the Mixed Media Place blog for more inspiration by my super talented design team colleagues! As for the 100th Journal on Monday celebration: it will start on August 4th and go on for a whole week. Like I mentioned before, I'm counting on you all to share an art journaling process. Remember it's not about making an impression if that's holding you back, it's about sharing. And all those sharing will be in for the prizes. Just saying! Only 2 more weeks till the party!!

Rendez-vous sur le blog Mixed Media Place pour plus d'inspiration par mes collègues super talentueuses de la DT! Quant à la célébration du 100ième Journal on Monday: cela démarrera le 4 août et durera toute une semaine. Comme je l'ai déjà dit, je compte sur vous tous pour partager votre processus. N'oubliez pas qu'il n'est pas question de faire impression, si c'est ce qui vous retient, mais bien de partage. Et tous ceux qui partagent entre en course pour les tirages au sort. Je dis ça, je dis rien! Plus que 2 semaines avant la fête!!

  2. The significance of the license plate is powerful, France! It perfectly balances the quote in both art and life, doesn't it? This art touches my core!

  3. Great video as always France, enjoyed seeing the layers of colours being added and the charcoal pencil highlighting areas to bring them forward. Thank you for always inspiring me :-) xxx

  4. Another great page France...and just in time! I just received my stampotique order from you. I got the block of stamps and the coffee cups rings. Now, I'm all set to go! Thank you so much for taking the time to do these tutorials. For those of us teaching ourselves about this particular genre, it's an immense help as you explain about the colors, textures, etc.

  5. Wow France, it is an explosion, explosion of layers, loved that you used orange instead of red and your spread has so much to say, powerful!

  9. This is beautiful France. I must save my money and get pan pastels. I have used mostly pencils and inks up until now. My mother is dying and I am caring for her right now. Natural but sad part of life. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful your videos lift me up.They carry me away to wonderment.
    love and hugs

  14. Quel beau travail et quelle bonne idée que de dactylographier ton texte. Il y a déjà belle lurette que je me suis débarrassée de ma vieille dactylo; ça me la fait regretter!


Merci pour vos petits mots qui sont pour moi de vrais encouragements! :)
Thanks for your kind words, they're a real encouragement to me! :)
