Journal weeks 27 and 28 combined
Art Journal Prompts on Facebook and I have jumped right in. Week 27 asked us to use gold. Week 28 asked us to rework an existing page.
I have combined the two prompts into one page. The top photo is a torn paper stitched collage. It wasn't going anywhere. I colored copied it as it is kind of fragile. I added some green acrylic paint to the lower part and hated it. I removed most of it and am much happier. I also added my favorite tree shape that I covered in gold swirls. Since the acrylic paint had too much coverage I used Inktense pencils to add more color in other areas.
I wrote 'be still' repeatedly in cursive around the top of the tree. That seems to be my mantra this year. Those words fill me with trust and calm.
