I have been Soul Journaling....

I had some time last night to work on some more of Sarah Whitmire's prompts in the Soul Journaling group. Here we were to write adjectives, paint, splatter,wash, use tape, use a pencil, and stencil a figure, write a grocery list, etc. I really like how this page turned out. It was fun!

This prompt was called collage potpourri. We were to write angrily the alphabet, paint, use a tool or something unusual as a stamp, list what we did today, stencil a profile and use something metal of the page. The page pretty much speaks for itself. The metal hearts came off of a candle. The candle was wrapped in metal tape with the hearts embossed on it. When I finished burning the candle I kept the tape knowing I would find another use for them.

Here is the home journal page prompt. We were to use a paper bag to make a house with a pocket. Do the neighborhood, and add the people, pets, etc. that live at you house. I made a house, and some other houses using paper bags and watercolors. The figures are from Artchix. I just love these paper dolls. I decided I would use one as me and the rest are arty friends coming to visit for the weekend to do art. "Last Boy Home" was not up for his picture being used in any way shape or form...
