Healing Pages

Lately, art journaling has been taking me by surprise, taking my breath away. iLove words. iLove art. Coupled, they send me. Once the page is prepped with layers and textures, feelings and thoughts seem to glue themselves down as if they find themselves, lost no more.  Mod Podge is truly Soul Glue like they say. This might be too raw and nekkid. Dim the lights and grace me?

iLove your art, the words, your heart and the way you notice and articulate what you see.
iLove how you say look and see what you see.

do you use any special supplies to do this? Special adhesives or coverings? It looks intriguing to me.

Lyla Lindquist said...

No! No! Lady don't do it!

Kathleen, I love this. Not only the finished work on paper -- it's wonderful all by itself. But I'm thinking of the work going on in your heart.

No need to dim the lights one bit, Kathleen. You're doing such wonderful collage, in so short a time. You have an intuitive feel for this. Keep on!

There's a very nice inter-connectedness to these pieces, and there's something very lovely going on here.

Did you faint? (love that!)

Miss Kathleen, what a blend of reality and truth. Maybe some of these should be handbags or t-shirts...

Blessings.

Julie, Cassandra, Maureen, Darlene, Valerie, Leah, Lyla, and Susan - thank you so much for being with me in understanding. Gesso, Mod Podge, and old vintage printed material Cassandra. And paint. And many fun pens. :)

Collage has always been one of my favorites. There's something about the turning and re-turning of images that tickles me.

Keep cutting, keep turning, keep touching the edges...
