Now that I have a new home for the 100 Mandalas Challenge, I will be reclaiming this blog for posting about my creative and artful life.
A year ago, I started this journal before launching the 100 Mandalas Challenge.
I was looking for a place to gather courage to spread my wings.
I had been playing small for years. While I had been very creative here on my blog, I desired something more. I decided to create this journal to help me discern my creative career path.
To create this journal, I took a pad of watercolor paper and painted the cover.
I wanted a cover that would inspire me to return to this journal to fill it's pages. I wanted a beautiful place to return whenever I needed to remember who I am. I wanted to create a place that would give me pep talks and inspiration any time I was feeling vulnerable.
When I rediscovered in my stash of supplies these large gold wings, I knew I had the perfect subject for this journal. They not only fit perfectly on the front and back covers, but they were a good symbol of my need to spread my wings. Working with acrylics, I painted clouds on the background and using black paint, I distressed the wings.
While I'm known by many for my love for mandalas, I'm passionate about mixed media, collage, and art journaling.
It feels like the right time to open this journal and share it with you. I'm not sure how frequently I'll post here. When I do, you will be in for a treat. Each page of this journal is filled with beauty and words of inspiration.
