Photo cut out from a fashion magazine.
These are from a couple of weeks ago. Art journaling (something I haven't done in a long time). The goal was to create, without critiquing, since those two processes are meant to stay separate.
I started without a clear vision of what the final product should look like, and kept going, adding, smudging, layering, until it felt "done".
It feels really good to get back into hands-on creative work like this, especially with the mixed media. And it's refreshing to be free of worry about the final product, its meaning, conceptual elements, upcoming critique from teachers and peers, etc.

"Journaling always renews my pure love for everything and everyone. I feel as if it reminds my cells about who I really am and where I really came from. It reminds me to hang in there for this lifetime because soon enough I will be able to go back to my real home. It's my bliss." ~teesha moore
