So when will I choose a winner?

The giveaway will happen two weeks from today on  Friday August 29.  So enter and pass it on. Then check back here to see if you've won.

Now its time for some art, I am linking to Paint Party Friday, so here is some painting in my journal.

This is a 2 page spread in my journal for the Spectrum course.  The lesson was from the Desire month and focus was on the Sacred Feminine.  Each month in Spectrum we work with a different word and have several women giving classes.  Its been a wonderful course.

I started out by writing on the page my intentions, then slopping paint on top.  On the right side I focused on feminine symbols.  The noni, the chalice, moon and spiral amongst them. I chose the colors specifically for my intention. Purple for imagination, blue for trust, red for energy, passion, ambition and determination, and green for balance and growth. The dots represent the breath, that giver of life.  I've been using the oil based Sharpie for the white dots and it works pretty good.  It doesn't smell or anything like that. I know I am always looking for the perfect white pen. Often what others use just doesn't work for me. I found my gelly roll white pen worked over this paint too. I never seem to know if my pen is going to work on not. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't so its a long time before I toss them.

On the left side page was more a ghost image of the intense colors on the right. I immediately saw this Goddess figure in the background so I drew her with a scarlet-lime pen and colored in her hair with Pitt artist pens. I added more symbology with markers.


  1. What a great giveaway! many of my journal entries come about from quotes I have read and want to preserve.
