Art Journaling is for the SOUL...

It's Friday and that means Unity Stamps "Friends with Flair" and it also means with this post I will have posted for three "Friends with Flair" in a row... now THAT's a follow-through for sure!

Today I am sharing a journal page I created this week of my "Happy Place". 
Now, I don't normally share my personal art journaling, but as I work my way through a very intense, very personal journey I am on as I mourn some losses, my art journal has become the polysporin and band-aid that is covering up the holes in my heart and finally allowing me to heal...


This page shows with uncanny reality how I see myself in my head and expresses almost exactly how I feel when I am on my wooden swing under "My Trees".  
I use this visual when I am feeling very fragile and don't think I can continue on with my journaling... I stop and imagine myself on my swing...SOARING... and it gives me that little bit of time to "catch my emotional breath" and then continue on through the pain to the healing... Happy Sigh!

Now for those of you that want to know, I created this background with my inky paper towels I use to blot my dylusion spraying, they are so pretty I cannot bare to throw them away, so here they are again! I used Mod Podge to apply them righ tovertop of some paint splatters and stamped images already on the page and the paper towels did  not cover up the images, but just faded them back, Cool Huh? So if you haven't tried Art Journaling yet, give it a go, it's not about making pretty pictures, it's about creating to make YOU feel better...

Note:  This is the first in a series of Art Journal Pages that I will be sharing with all of you this coming week... So if this interests you, do stop by next week.

Thanks for popping in to see me again today, and as always, leave me a comment if you like what you see!
