Soul Journal - back to pages 5 and 6


These are the before and after pictures of my taped pages. I rubbed the the tape with sandpaper but unfortunately you can't see the metallic tape very well (it looks lovely and scratchy/shiny). Sarah told us to go back to these pages and work on them, also she suggested we write about our experiences of soul journalling so far. I decided to combine the two.
I will be writing more on my recently collaged papers (about what I've liked/not liked doing etc) but for now I've written my first thoughts..........how I've loved meeting all the other soul-journallers and sharing thoughts and learning from them.........how much I've enjoyed discovering new techniques from Sarah that I'll use in my future artwork......and I'm learning that its ok to make mistakes and just 'have a go' (and not be so self-critical...a huge problem with me).
I finally added a few pictures, some gems, silver pen, stamps, doodling and Glossy Accents.
I'm fairly happy with it.
Phew! I'm off for a cup of tea after all that!!
Love Linda xx
PS Hope this picture shows the shininess better!

That is the one thing I so enjoy about "playing" with art supplies is the things you come up with, some you like a whole lot, some not so much but it is still a journey!

Hey Linda. I like this! I didn't see the shine until I read your post, then it popped out in front of my eyes. These colors and the design are nice.

I hope you are doing well. I think of you often.

Your work is gorgeous. I absolutely love all of the elements - the colors, lines, type, all of it. I just posted my latest pages. They are the collage potpourri #3. I added some of my own elements to the list. :)
