The photo above shows the last piece of art for this year's Magical Journal Journey and is for the lovely Lisa Wright whose theme was 'layers'. I had difficulties scanning & photographing this piece so unfortunately the prints aren't a true reflection of the original. However, hopefully you can see my layers consisted of: a black pen drawing I did in the centre, various papers/fabrics, cotton embroidery, glass beads and words cut out of a damaged book of children's stories. My inspiration came from childhood memories of Grimm's fairytales and the layers of meaning found in a story. I'm hoping Lisa will enjoy the idea & my attempts to bring it to life. At the end of this year's art journey we should all have one or more collaborative pieces of art to hang on our walls which will serve as a beautiful daily reminder of a group of treasured creative friends!
My blogging habits have been particularly erratic of late and that has a lot to do with the simple excuse of life getting in the way. I like to take a positive viewpoint & generally do. However, it is undeniable that this year has been extremely testing, especially emotionlly. Recently I found myself saying I would be glad to see the back of this year and immediately hated the negative way that sounded. So instead I'm looking forward and seeing endings as the precussor to new beginnings.
