"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Exciting Day!



What an exciting day today was. I shared visual journaling with a group of women. I have been wanting to open my studio and share my love for it, and the experience of it. Visual journaling is more than putting color, pictures and words on the page. Somehow it goes deeper and allows one to get in touch with one's heart.

We are all in different places on our journey, but there are points along the way where we can join each others journey to help, encourage, to give support.

I had so much fun, and I think the other women did as well. They are coming back next Saturday!! After sharing some basic techniques, and some of the wonderful supplies that are out there I am hoping that we can continue to get together at least once a month. It's really a lot of fun doing this as a group.

Did I take pictures??? Of course not!!! I meant to, but got too involved in the process and what we were doing! I'll try to remember next time.

I did play around with an old journal page. I cropped the page and messed with the contrast and brightness a bit.

I love how it turned out. I love that the cross is so brilliant against the colors! I printed it out on 4x6 photo paper and it looks great. I think I will make some cards with it.

I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday, and wishing all you Moms a Happy Mother's Day!!

Blessings and hugs!!

Happy Mother's Day Mary! That's a beautiful piece as always- it speaks to my heart! You know, we're the same age! And I discovered art journaling just a couple of years ago. I hope you received the ATCs already or else our post office is taking a long time as usual!
