Bonus: that I get to find good use of all my paper scraps for journal cards or pockets. Woo hoo, colour and a little touch (albeit small, I know) of eco friendly goodness.
And then to make a day better, I was out and about and found those lovely star stickers you see on the page and it was fantastic, like they were meant just for me!
All in all, it was cathartic to come back to the painted page. I've missed it. I love scrapbooking, but art journaling... I adore it. I'm looking forward to plunging back into the fray.
As for the art journal page in question: For those of you who have been reading between the lines the last few months, you'll have noticed that my emotions have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride. This is probably, in large part, due to where my meditations are taking me and the work that I am doing in my practice. Things are opening up, unfolding, and with that comes some amazing highs and some interesting lows. I'm working on finding balance within that process, but it's not so easy some days. So this page is just about remembering that I am loved, to treat myself with loving kindness as I go through this process, and to remember that it's all part of the learning process.
