I want to share more from my recent circle journal experience. One of the journals in this exchage was themed "The She Artist in You". This was a challenge and I loved it!
I love mixed media, and have done mixed media but not enough that I am comfortable with it. SO - I played for days on some "test" pages. Then I was out of time - I had to bite the bullet and just do the darn pages. This person's journal was an actual bound book so I couldn't just re-do the pages if I didn't like it - the pressure was on!
My "She Art" message comes from me constantly doing 12 things at a time. My head is always scattered thinking of all those things. It's always working in the background. For me the ultimate indulgence is to just "be still". Letting the background noise just stop for a moment. So my message -
SHE WAS GRATEFUL FOR THE CALM, AND WASN'T AFRAID TO BE STILL
Then I got a little messey on the last page. Loved that too! The actual finished journal this person ended up with was just incredible. I was thankful for the challenge, and am itching to do more!
