Journal Page - Save the Turtles


This is another journal page using the Soul Journal - Caspiana - prompts. We were to fill our page with numbers, trace our hands six times, put important words down, etc... Sometimes things that you are thinking about just flow out.

I had read an article in our local paper about our the turtle hospital here was getting ready to sue the government over gill nets. Then, I had another conversation with a turtle nest volunteer I know about the turtle season in the grocery store. After that, it occurred to me that I should call and put my name on the list for volunteering. When the cold weather snaps the turtles get caught unaware and have to be rescued. Last year there were 23 in a matter of days. Hence, it all comes out in my journal. What in your life has spilled into your journaling or art?

The numbers and hand outlines are perfect for this page. Counting turtles and taking action to save turtles - great colors too!

What a fun page. I love your butterfly person on top of the turtle. As they say in hawaiian lore, when asked what hold the earth together, they answer: It's turtles all the way down. Great page. Sox

Very cool page. I just joined the group but haven't had time to even sit down at my art table and do anything. It's coming. :)Bea

What a beautiful page, and such a great color palette too! Isn't it interesting how even without thinking about it our worries and concerns can spill out into our journals. I think the turtle rescue sounds like a great cause. Bravo to you my dear for helping out!!!

I love the way you just outlined your fingers, when I did mine last year I did the whole hand and it just over powered the page, what you did works really well. Janet B.
