In art journaling there are no mistakes, but there are second chance pages I redo. I made this art journal page last month and it just didn’t seem right. I felt like something was missing, there was nothing to tie the page all together, it felt a bit hodge podge. I liked the background colours, the world and the face as individual components but the journaling got lost on the purple and the gold light lines didn’t turn out how I’d visualised it.
The redo consisted of covering the journaling which refocussed the page and I toned down the gold lines by adding a quote. The letters were cut from magazines my mum left with me when she visited in September and a few were from my scrapbooking stash. Now I like it. The quote is very meaningful to me personally. I think this year has been a year of refocussing, reorienting myself along my strengths and extricating myself from the things that take me off mission.
Yep, doing that. Cutting down my coffee intake, spring cleaning my art and craft stash, being more intentional to be one on one with each of my kids and my hubby regularly, tweaking where I serve at church, spending time building on friendships, pondering and praying over next steps… Good to know my purpose, great to keep checking in and seeing if I’m still on track. Next year will be a big year, Yay! Bring it on.
