Soul Journal pages 7 and 8


Here are the first 2 steps of our 'house' pages.
We had to draw our own house on the left and attach a brown paper bag - wonder whats going inside? Thats what I like about this; Sarah keeps us guessing and takes us back to pages when we think we have completed them! On the next page we had to draw any houses we liked.....well, I began drawing the lovely houses I remember seeing on the island of Symi. Only later did I regret the choice because I don't think they look right next to my house!! I think Sarah would say that doesn't matter - oh well, we'll see what we have to do to them next........
I forgot to mention, the second step was to stick bits of newsprint, tissue, patterned papers - anything we liked onto the houses. Wasn't sure how far to go with this, but I'll find out later today!
Rosie has emailed me and she wishes she was doing this journal along with me....that would have been nice. Hopefully this won't be the last journal challenge though!
Love Linda x

i like your houses very much and it sounds like they were special to you or it was a special time so each time you look at them you will have that memory.
