pagan art journaling {week 16}

This week’s prompt: ethics


What ethical code guides your practice. Obviously the most common moral maxim that people in wicca talk about is:

An it harm none, do what thou wilt.

Do you buy it? What issues or benefits do you see from this statement? Or another…

  1. I love the colors of this page! And the wee grump standing near the mushroom, he's a sassy one alright. :)

    I'm playing catch-up in my own journal. I've done a few of the previous prompts and a random one about one of my totems. I also learned a lesson about sealing my pages, as watercolor sits on top of the acrylic base coat and doesn't ever really set. Working on the back side of the pages can have some sad effects on the work I've already done.

  2. thanks! I had fun with it and spent a lot of time layering the paint and paper, etc while I contemplated the topic. I actually wrote less than expected but whatever!

    that sucks about the paint issues. I have only ever used acrylis, never watercolour (though I'm tempted to seeing how lovely some of works I see are... watercolour has this amazing looseness and transparency that I love). I'm not familar with how well the types blend/work together, it's unfortunate you had to learn it that way! :(

  3. I'm very much a trial and error sort of artist, so a mess was bound to happen eventually. ;) Typically when I use an old book for an art journal, I watercolor directly over the printed text, but since I'm writing in this one I need to block the text out to keep everything from looking jumbled and un readable. At least I found out now, rather then later.

    I left you an award on my blog, if you're interested in playing along. If not, no worries.

    P.S. My journal is on its way to you!

  4. Hi! This is my first time here and I'd like to invite you over to my entry.
