My First Mandala Ever!

My first mandala is a little wonky, even with the help of a compass.
I made this while taking Julie Gibbons' online course 5 Days of Mandala Magique.

Making mandalas is very meditative.
I photocopied this one several times and my 11 year old daughter colored them in various color schemes. Fun!

Women Writing for a Change | Art + Soul Series

I just completed a wonderful 6 session writing and art journaling series, facilitated by the very talented Jennifer Wolfe and Women Writing for a Change Jacksonville.

During the six weeks, we created five collages. 

We read poetry, created collages and wrote ~ sharing our words and images and thoughts within a safe circle of supportive women. 

Our theme for this Fall 2014 Art + Soul session was The Heroine's Journey: A Woman's Quest for Wholeness, by Maureen Murdock.

We created personal altars honoring our collages and our heroine's journey.

We incorporated personal items and objects gathered from nature.

I am looking forward to the Spring 2015 Art + Soul Series!

Gluebook Party ~ with Bare Branch Blooming

I attended a fun Instagram Art Journal Party, 

We worked on 5 different prompts, 30 minutes each.

Some of the pages are still works in progress, such as this one.
I'll add journaling later, or maybe a poem.

It was a great time! I hope to attend another Instagram art party in the future.
