Lonely Girl: Art Journal Pages


{{{please feel free to use this image for your own personal use}}}

This little photo tucked away in my stash has always intrigued me. Maybe it's those mothering instincts, but every time I see this photo I want to gather this little girl in my arms and love away the sadness I sense in her. Maybe remind her that better days lie ahead…get her a puppy…something!

She was destined to end up in at least one of my creative endeavors…

…and that day has arrived…


For my journal pages she was named the lonely girl…

Loneliness and feeling alone in this big world are probably things we all experience to some degree during our journey here on earth. Those can be difficult seasons. I know I've gone through plenty of these times due to relocation, loss, change, and a host of other circumstances. But the antidote is always the same…

….choosing love and friendship….

{oops! i felt my journaling spots were a bit too personal and purposely smudged them up…sorry for the quick scare if you thought your eyes were getting bad!}

Also wanted to call your attention quick to the new sidebar item I posted. Karla is having a Wizard of Oz celebration and is hosting a tag swap if anyone is interested. And don't forget to throw your name in the hat for my giveaway {previous post}!

As always, thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit! And above all else…choose love and friendship!

Xo, Sue

    Very insightful, Sue. Not typically my first thought when facing these things, so it is nice to be reminded that this is the right direction to take. Growing each day…

    I have just found your blog and will certainly be spending more time here today. I want some gaffer tape to play around with. Looks like fun.
    I would like to be entered in the giveaway and will post about it on my blog today.

    She does look kind of lonely and sad. Or, maybe she was just in trouble with her mama.
    But, when I look at her on your journal page, I believe I am seeing a hint of a smile. I’ll bet it was that hug you gave her.

    Poor little girl, she does look quite sad doesn’t she? I think you made her feel better though, what a beautiful journal spread, all that color makes her look so much happier 🙂
