Hi there peeps! How are things in your neck of the woods? We have continued to enjoy gorgeous summer like weather later than I can ever remember-awesome! It's about to change quickly though but I'm ready for it.
Halloween is fast approaching so I have another tag to share:
Products: manila tag (Ranger); patterned paper (Me and My Big Ideas); Versafine Onyx Black ink; Tim Holtz paper Dolls; Spooky tag and enamel dot (Recollections); Spiders/web stickers (the Paper Studio); bird stickers (Nicole). Joining Moo Mania and More (Halloween); Tag Tuesday (Halloween/Autumn); and the Simon Monday Challenge (Monochrome).
I have one last meal to share from our last visit to Cape May. We always have one nice dinner at The Merion Inn - a really lovely place we have been going to for a number of years now. The ambiance is lovely as is the piano entertainment, and the food is always excellent!
T Stands For Tuesday gang it'll just be tea :)
And I have a special journal page to share. First I wish to thank Susi for sharing her beautiful page along with the link for the free workshop provided by Laly Mille ( merci beaucoup Laly!). Unfortunately it was offered only for the week and is no longer available but it was a nice introduction representing the artist, her style, and her spirituality combined. And it couldn't have come to me at a more perfect time.
I was not in a good place last Friday and decided to go for a long walk to clear my mind. I came back and went online and went to Susi's latest post. I went to the link she provided and that was it. I began to listen to Laly. I prepared myself by putting a combination of essential oils in my diffuser (Sage-for cleansing, Cypress - for opening, and Lemongrass- for inspiring). Then I chose two cards from my Law Of Attraction deck to inspire me:
I went through the breathing, meditating and visualizing guided by Laly and I was completely in the zone. Immediately after watching the art instruction video (Your True North Star) I went up to my room to create my page.
This doesn't look anything like Laly's example even though it began that way. Somehow my piece took on a life of its own, the layers of writing and collage papers pretty much got covered up with paint layers and became Impressionistic. I wasn't able to capture the glitter on my north star in my photo but it's there. I love that every time I look at this page it will take me to my calming center, AND my true north star. Sharing with Art Journal Journey (Landscapes of the Soul hosted this month by Elke), and Paint Party Friday. Wishing you a connection to YOUR true north star.
" Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
we have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!"
