journal pages, October 2013

There is a candle in your heart,
ready to be kindled.

There is a void in your soul,
ready to be filled.

You feel it, don't you.

I spent the early afternoon finishing my journal page for this month's prompt, Struggle, over at A Year in the Life of an Art Journal.

Left Page
Various papers, my handwritten note, one of my linocut circle stamps, gesso and acrylics.

Right Page
Self-Portrait photograph, Rumi Quote, circles stamped using the bottom of a wine bottle, found clasp, and acylics.

I ended the afternoon with a ride to the park and and a run in the woods. I love riding and running in the crisp air. I'm enjoying Autumn in full color here and wishing everyone a good weekend.

also joining Sunday Sketches and Glue it Tuesday (see links below)

  13. These pages feel like heartbeat made visible! :o) Your way with color always impresses me,Juana--you have such a talent for pairings--color/pattern/materials! It is easy to gravitate to autumn colors just now. The leaves are going fast here. And last weekend we changed the clocks back. This week I pay special attentiong to the changing qualities of the light. It's nice to back in blogland and catching up with everyone. I hope to be around more when I can, now I'm doing better--I'm online a little less still these days. The less technology is not a bad things.. LOL! I posted for the first time in weeks--it felt good, sweet! HAPPY DAYS, my friend ((HUGS))
