This Is It and All At Sea

I am finding that my art journalling is greatly influenced by what I am reading. It's a kind of way of putting things into my own words and pictures to help me to understand and digest them.

At the moment, I am reading Jon Kabat-Zinn's "Wherever You Go, There You Are" and have been inspired to put together these two spreads. The first is in my re-purposed Eagle annual:

all at sea full spread

all at sea left hand side

all at sea right hand side

These pages were put together in several layers, including watercolour paints, dip-dyed kitchen rolls, marker pens, collage, stamps and crayons.

The second spread is in my regular art journal and uses gesso coloured with chalk pastels, then a layer of acrylic paints spread around with baby wipes together with collage elements, stickers and writing.

  1. Love your pages. I struggle to be in the now, as I think many of us do. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh I do love you Mrs! How poetic you are :-)

  3. Both of these spreads are great. I really like the softness of the second one. It goes perfectly with your words.

  4. Beautiful work Viv - these journals are amazing!

  5. Love what you are doing with the Eagle Annual.


I love comments! Please don't be shy :-)
