The start of a soul journal journey
Fate sometimes intervenes when we need it most. I have been thinking more and more about art journaling, but had much trepidation about starting. Serendipitously, through an altered paper swap delightful, talented artists, I was introduced to the Soul Journaling group on yahoo. You'll see some samples of their papers in earlier posts. I have finished my first prompt, which was to create a weaving of some of our hopes and dreams for the coming year. I wove mine with strips of vellum for the vertical elements, some paper I painted and some resist stained with Nancy Curry's technique for the horizontals. The thought process really helped me solidify some of the ways I can be most positive and useful. In my case, I placed the weaving on the top of a mailing envelope so I can store little bits I might use in my journaling.
