I played more in my Soul Journal today. It's so beautiful sitting out in the sun with the birds singing as I work. It inspired this page, which was prompted by Sarah's Day 18 instructions in her Soul Journal project.
The instructions were to do a page and journal words. Words about what the process of the Soul Journey is all about. I normally don't like to look at my handwriting on a page, but I'm happy to report I'm gettin' over that.
I journaled something to that effect here. I think it's going to add a whole new feel to my journals. Thank you Sarah! You continue to inspire!
I am enjoying all the comments and visitors too. I'll be checking out all your journal pages, and seeing the amazing lives shared here. You're all so generous and inspiring! Thank you!
This was a page that was giving me grief. No other way to put it. I didn't enjoy doing it, and I didn't like the result. One of the prompts was to go back and add to it. When I looked at it again, the grid pattern reminded me of windows.
Ah! Windows let in light! I added some light, and some words that remind me of how to get over all the junk and the dark stuff. It's simple Truth. Now I'm happy again.
Another page that I went back to. It was page 1 and 2 from Day 17 (I think).
Dawn gave me a challenge, and though I think she had a collage in mind, I loved the grid exercise so much from Day 9 that I did a similar thing over top of my background. I then gave it a wash of burnt umber to tome it down. F-U-N indeed.
I had a busy day yesterday reinventing my guest room. I'll post some pics later. It looks totally different, and pretty.
I tell ya', the inspiration from this Soul Journaling is carrying over.
Now if it would just inspire me to get at that washing machine thing.
