"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.


work in progress

I am also taking LK Ludwig's class, Point and Shoot Journaling. 
These pages are using the backgrounds from the previous post with a few 
ideas from the class. See previous post for links to her blog and workshops.

The first page I covered the red with gesso. These are not completed, I have not even 
attached the photos yet, just playing around with images to use.  I think I really like these. 

This is fun, and I am excited about using photos in my journal pages.

You amaze me! I love coming over and seeing how you put things together that you have fancied up with paint previously. This blue grabs my heart! I've always been in love with deep and rich cobalt blue. This looks like such a fun class.

You really encourage me Mar to get over being so stiff about letting go and trying new ways to create. I can see the freedom in how you explore and create something and those somethings end up being gorgeous! I hope here soon I jump over to the side of just letting go and creating out of that kind of freedom.
