Dandelion Daughter

I'd like to Dedicate this page to All Women who have ever had a miscarriage.  If you are like me, those lost babies, no bigger than a little dandelion fluff are still in your heart and soul. 

  
Dandelion Daughter

This page was done in one of my Strathmore journals.  Size 5.5 x 8.5.  I used acrylic paint, hand carved stamps, hand painted papers, one collage image and various other techniques and applications.

White Moon Chakra

Another page for the 21 Secrets Spring 2015 Art Journaling workshops.   This one was with Mindy Tsonas.  It's all about "Your Inner Alchemy"  your aura, spiritual energy.  I did this page in a journal that already had some pages with background work done.  I had intended it to be a journal about / featuring cemetery angels.  And I think it can still have that design element.  I'll just add my faces to it.  Of course that's what was going to happen anyway!  I have to say that this is one of my favorite faces that I've done in a long time.  There is something raw about it that appeals to me.  


And I'm sending out a Great Big Thank You to Joanna over at JoGatheringWild who let me borrow her cool Flower / Seed Pod hand carved stamp.

Walking with Flowers

I spent a big part of yesterday working on this page.  I'm calling it "Walking with Flowers".

Close your eyes and image yourself in a big field.  A gentle breeze is blowing, sweet flowers scents are in the air.  Humming birds and Honey bees are drinking nectar.  Close by is a stream where Dragonflies dip and sway over the water.  If you close your eyes and stay very still, you can hear the flowers whispering to each other and for a moment, just one moment, you are a flower.

I created this Bohemian lady to go with the Red Papers, bottom left....that I did for Jessica Brogan's workshop...Letting Go and Layering Up..21 Secrets - Spring.  This page is a mix of collage papers, napkin paper, hand painted paper and acrylic paint.
