21 Secrets#2 Art Journal As a Soul Mirror
October 13, 2010 Leave a comment
I’m so happy to participate to this workshop with Effy Wild (Wild Precious). I definitely go for this very “Spiritual Journey” like Art Journalling. And it is for me where from everything started, I begun drawing again because I needed to express physically what I was experiencing by visualising or during meditations and dreams.
After the guided meditation, this is what I did until now
It is actually first time I was writing on my Art Journal. Really writing down my “true self”. It is still really hard for me to write down. I know I can cover it. I know none will know it is there. None but me. And I know. Let say it was a little bit easier to do it there since it was about…. positive things! And to cover it, Effy suggested to use a technique I already saw on videos but never tried: spread directly on the page the paint with a credit card.
This is the left hand page, it’s a bit messy since it’s first time I was using this technique, but I like it anyway.
Right hand page is more clean and romantic ! I loved the process of putting together colours such as pink and green that normally do not mix very well, and watch the magic happening. It really was a true moment of blessing, pleasure and peace. I love the result of this page. It is not fully covering the page, but I really do like it that way. You can only hide things to a certain extend.
No, this had nothing to do with this pages, I was just so pleased that I made this extra one with left-over paint… I love the wild and lively effect!
Some cuts, glue, colour sticks…
And that is what I have for now!
Some of my pages are really done in a very short time, I start them from scratch of just from a background, and they’re done one hour later. But this one I really want to explore ahead. I feel I need to work a bit more on it, to meditate again.
I would have loved to use gel, since I didn’t have, I use some heavy gloss, but most probably the result is not the same. I have to get some of this gel!!!
