Rural Joy - A Tutorial for Soul Journey

Thank you so much to the beautiful girls @ SoulJourney for asking me to be a part this year!





 I took a moment for some reflection & it has seriously helped me be at peace with my struggle to connect with a higher "being." I put being in quotes because it could (and does) also mean IDEA. just.. something OTHER than what we know physically here on Earth.

:)

Here is the little art journal I created :





I'm REALLY excited to move forward putting celestial & other worldly things inside!

Here is the video :







Here are closeups & supplies:

Art Journaling : Out Of My Comfort Zone

Yesterday was Art Journaling Class! I love getting together with my local girls & trying new stuff... new layers, new techniques, new supplies... well I used this last week as a time to get out of my comfort zone. I default to acrylic paint pretty regularly... and I just got a whole slew of acrylic inks.. so I worked up this page in mostly inks :) I also subbed in some oil pastel, which gave my page a great warm fuzzy feeling! You may notice.. the color palette is also out of my norm.

Makes me happy looking at it again :) :)
