Through My Window – September Theme for Art Journal Journey

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

This month I have the great pleasure of creating the theme for Art-Journal-Journey.  Through my window.  Through my window can be almost anything you can see.  The outer world, the inner world, the quick glance, the long view. A window to the soul. A window to the world.  For the theme I wrote a poem to go along with my pages.

Through my window I can see glimpses of the world open up to me.


Outer light, inner light.  Flower and plant, bird and bee.  A window of opportunity.


A breath of air, a rustle of wind, a feeling for the mood I’m in.


Each day the glimpse gets wider still, includes me into the view. Through my window.


My pages were made simply by printing out some photographs and using paper collage and color pencils and pens.


And of course a bit of thread to weave the story through my window.

I hope you enjoy the theme and I am anxious to see all the wonderful ways you will take it.  Thanks always to our wonderful hostesses Valerie and Susi for creating a place of true inspiration for us all.

  6. Susi and Valerie couldn’t have found a better host for the month, and you couldn’t have picked a better theme. Wonderful art and I learned a bit more about you (at AJJ), too. We got art and poetry all rolled into one spread!

  7. Great topic! I can’t wait to see what people create. And I love your spread. Your poem is the perfect background for the page your created!

  8. Beautiful window glimpses you’ve created. Words are lovely, too.

  9. I like this a lot, Corrine. You still inspire me to create. I don’t know where the summer has gone and I have yet to paint much. I’ve done some work in my journal, though. I guess some is better than none. There is much to see out the windows, if only we take the time to look.

  10. Hello Corrine,
    a variety of different sides to this
    great topic – I like that very well.
