My art journaling comes from my heart!
I often use my art journaling to work through things that I might be going through that I can’t quite make sense of, sometimes I write down my thoughts and sometimes I use a song or songs to help express the thoughts inside of me.
This page actually incorporates both. I chose a song and looked up the lyrics online that would closely express what I was feeling and once I wrote those down on my page I continued to write a bit more of my own feelings. Typically when I am done I like to create some art over the top of it as I’m a pretty private person and really don’t want to share all my words and thoughts with others. Sometimes my art will express what I was feeling on the page and often times my art will be a bit more happy trying to find happiness and peace and move on from the turmoil that I may be feeling.
On this page, I created a floral collage in bright happy colors with a bit of gold shimmer trying to find the bright lining in all that I am going through. The layers represent all of the pieces that I had put together over time that once made one full happy piece.
This page has a lot of symbolism and meaning to me and helping me make sense where there seems to be none.
I used stamps from Paperbag Studios - Doodle and Daters to add detail and more depth to my petals. I also used specific stamps like the heart and circles for more symbolism in my journey for peace in this page. I have a quote that I would like to share that came out of this process and the journey though this page and that is:
Thank you for allowing me to share my journey in this page today with all of you. Wishing everyone lots of peace and happiness always!
