pagan art journaling {week 4}

One month down. Already!

This week's prompt: Nature



Go where you will with this. What does nature mean to you? How does it relate to your spirituality? Are you environmental? What nature gods/goddesses speak to you? How is nature part of your understanding of the mysteries? Magic and the natural world.... Oh the choices infinite, where will you go?


This week I opted to play with a new technique: using wax! (That sounds kinda of naughty!!! I like it. The moon is in Scorpio people... I just can't resist)! And was inspired by the ad to your left (inspiration comes from many places and I'm not above lifting an idea if it prompts inspiration).



I used the wax all over the painting, but I started at the bottom, which is why it's more obvious... I hadn't figured things out yet! But the wax was there to preserve lighter shades (white or washed out versions of the colours).


Then I wrote over the finished product. Note... some pens don't write so well over the wax, even after it's be scraped off to the bare minimum. I actually ended up ruining one of my good art pens. Sigh. Well, chalk it up to a learning experience, I guess.
