Everything else

Book of Days – week 15

This week was all about experimenting. I used techniques I already knew and used them in different combinations. I had fun seeing how they would work together and trying new color combos, too. I discovered what I don’t like and what I need to practice more. A fun week.

For the “Movement” spread, I just let the images emerge. I love spirals and have always doodled them ever since I could hold a crayon. I know now that symbolically, for me, they represent the ripple effect in the fact that everything I do affects everything, and everyBeing that crosses my path. Even just making eye contact with a perfect stranger has an effect no matter how big or small. Spirals also represent energy (for me) in that energy never ends or begins, it just is. And like a spiral it goes on and on.

I experimented with painted lettering for my “Top 10” page. And for the multi-day “She” spread I did a mixed media background then used a stamp set that I have. It has a girl’s image with just hair and a mouth. I thought it would be fun to add in the eye and color in the hair. The set also has about 5 or 6 different phrases which I also used then traced them with brush markers.

Enjoy!
