Made by You Mondays

Today, I thought I'd show you something that I made this last Saturday at a meeting of a local craft group. We had a little mini demo on art journaling, something that I'd never experienced before & our instructor gave us the topic of goddesses. Now, we often think of goddesses as beautiful & we had gotten into  the topic of spas & pampering & 'feeling like a goddess," but since I know, from mythology that goddesses were also just as strong & contrary as the gods of mythology, my page took a different turn & ended up being more about balance & opposites. It's not finished, or I don't think I'm done yet, but here's what I have so far (this is a scan, so the colors, etc are a bit off). How about you? Have you ever tried art journaling? What did you think? It can be therapeutic :)

Drawing, stamping, pieces from music, paint, photo found in an old magazine.

Love it! It has a great feel of motion, but also calmness to it.
