Art and Soul Journal - "My Personal Lexicon"

These pages are inspired by a prompt from Kathryn Antyr.........."for our personal lexicons we will be collecting and recording our own visual and symbolic language"...... I made a list of my favourite images and materials which I aim to use in the coming year. I collected pictures, drew examples and stamped some onto pages which had previously been gessoed and painted with acrylics. My pages ended up rather similar to Kathryns.....I must admit I got rather carried away with her instructions!! (Don't think she'll mind though.)

I love your pages. Heee heee they do resemble mine. I'm so flattered that you liked my work so much. Sometimes it is nice to follow along and not have to make too many decisions. I'm glad I could offer you this type of play ~ it makes for a great distraction.

Again, SO much to see - I wish I could look at it in real life - what lovely images and colours. I can't read the writing tho but look foward to seeing the development and use of all this as time goes by.
