Hey friends, I have been working on this journal spread for a few days now. The second photo begins the progression. With each stage there were things I really liked and things I knew I wanted to change. I had moments of hesitation when I was working because I did now want to lose what I liked, but I also knew that if I did not go for it the spread would not express and reveal what I was feeling. So, I kept working. I wonder how often I keep myself from moving forward because of fearing what I may lose. Sometimes we have to give up the good for the better.
this is where it stands for now...letting it sit for a bit before I work on it some more.
this is the very beginning I really liked the background on this and knew that as I worked on it I would be covering up some of what I liked.
I liked the drips, and kind of liked the smaller pink blobs, but was not too excited about them.
this was beginning to express my feelings. I had been thinking about how so much of how I receive things and people, how I react to words and actions are colored by my childhood, and how I need to let go of so much of that that still affects me as an adult.
As I kept looking at the spread I felt the need to add more...again the first image is how it stands now. I really like the black, it makes the color and the white pop more. I do know I want to add more to the spread, just not so sure what. So, for now it rests.
