I have often wondered what happens to the photographs I send into the world. Diane (aka Midteacher), one of my photog pals in the A Thousand Words group on swap-bot, takes the guess work out of it for the photos I send to her. She often lets me know that she has included or plans to include my photos in her various art or mixed media journals. When I sent her this year’s “love post,” she shared that it was going to be added to her Purple Journal. Yes, her purple journal!
Take a look at detail!

I’m delighted that Diane found a beautiful use for the photo, but I’m sharing her post because she shares how she transformed the simple photo into a beautiful journal page. [She’s even running a contest for naming her purple journal. Help her name her journal and you could be the winner of a purple 8×10 mixed media piece].
I’ve always been intrigued and inspired by Diane’s work. My seeing how she crafted this page gives me the creative courage to give mixed media work a try.
You can see more of Diane’s work on her blog, A Focused Journey: Finding a Focus on the Other Side of Fifty, or you can check out some of my earlier posts which feature her photos:
- Purple Pansy
- Autumn Happy Mail
- Happy Heart Mail
- Playing with Black and White: Flowers
- Red, White, and Blue: Not a Political Statement
I’ll be sharing more of Diane’s work within the next week or two. Until then, enjoy the reign of purple!
