I really wanted my first pages of my 2018 art journal to be very impactful and meaningful to me. My word of the year made itself very clear during the last few weeks of 2017. And that word is VOICE.
So, I took Jamie's words of "find your own journey" and created a page where the soundwaves of my voice is my journey to expressing my inner self. Also, I feel this page represents so many people in the world right now. My hope is that my voice will empower others to lift their voices high, to stand up for themselves and others, and to be a light in the world.
Week 2 was so much fun because it was led by an artist I have followed for some time now. Michelle Turbide helped us to find our touchstones and to paint intuitively.
"The Path" is my mixed media piece created on a 12x12" canvas. I enjoyed this process so much; that I have another canvas halfway done, and want to do this in a journal spread.
I hope you've enjoyed the art so far! I will be sharing my Wanderlust work every 2-3 weeks.
I have another project in the works, as well. As soon as I get far enough into it; I will be posting those photos.
