Art Journaling – Week 32 – Passions

Creatorscorner-India

What I am most passionate about is what gave me inspiration for this page.

On the one side is creativity… giving it space and time, allowing for uniqueness to flow and grow, be nurtured and to blossom.   An open space where all things are possible because there is no wrong, no mistakes, everything is working out perfectly.   A place to become.  A community of acceptance and encouragement.

The other side, I am dreaming and believing for India.

Both in perfect timing, I stand at rest and in peace… looking forward with anticipation and hope.

A few weeks ago I painted the background with acrylic paint and used my new Actual stencils ( http://www.profcs.com/app/?Clk=5098889) to create the lotus flower and the heart designs (love them!!!).  The pages didn’t seem complete though.  I felt like adding to it and so I pulled out a bunch of pics I had collected from old magazines and such,  these come from doing previous collages as well as before recycling old magazines I always scan them for pics or words that stand out to me and look cool.  Browsing through magazines is a relaxing thing to do, especially when feeling stressed.  Looking at pretty pictures is calming and it gives your left brain a break from working so hard to keep you on track.  Give it a try the next time you are stressed.

This is what those pages became.  It always amazes me how these collages turn out, exactly what I needed.  The process of selecting the colours, images and words is meditative and a spiritual process occurs when you open up to it.  God and the Holy Spirit will guide you through and the result is one of peace and joy, giving your spirit a sense of hope and refreshment.

Suddenly this little orange guy pops up.  What could this mean?  Choose to rise up and be different from the crowd. Affogato, my new favourite, yummm What!!! Came home to Uni suntanning, topless!  And drinking margaritas!  I never seen this side of her, wow, I hope she smartens up before Daniela comes home.  We don't need this kind of bad influence here. Nite nite Uni, only 14 more sleeps. #Uni Dads keeping a close eye on Uni now, after that attempted escape. #Uni
