Week 3 of the One BADASS Art Journal workshop was called Explore, Dream, Discover with teacher Tracy Scott. You can still sign up to this workshop as you get lifetime access. Why not check out some of the other class bundles that is on offer. You can check them out HERE
For this painting I worked on black card and started out creating the flowers on the page. I love creating faces with a story and so this character came through to tell hers.
I called the page Escaping to the gardens of the mind. Working in an art journal can be very therapeutic and I find that the pages that I create usually have some bearing on either something I am working through or needing to put to rest.
An art journal can express many different sides to you, and those who have visited my blog from the 1st April to the 30 of April will see some of the different types of art journals that I have created in the blog series 30 Days of Journals that I am doing as part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.
When you want to escape to a place that is nurturing you don't always have to go far, turn to your journal. Sometimes I can be sitting for hours working on different pages in my journal, playing with color and different textures and expressing those things that I cannot yet put into words.
As I mentioned in last weeks post either side of the main page I will be painting corresponding images that pick up elements or sentiments of the main journal page.
Remember that the journal that you create or alter is entirely for your use, you decide how you want to use it and what you want to have in it, so dive in and have some fun.
I will be posting another page from my BADASS Art Journal next week Friday, but you will also see my A-Z challenge that is also being done in April, going to be quite a busy month, so do stop by, there will be something practically every day.
Stay blessed and be a blessing.
