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!

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!

I had fun creating these mixed media Happy Hearts for an
Instagram Happy Hearts swap organized by my new friend Sandra Kaye,
an awesome mixed-media artist, quilter and art journaler.

I attended a fun Instagram Art Journal Party,
hosted by Christine Hiester of Bare Branch Blooming.
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.
