My Art Journal is packed and on her way to the UK!
She will be visiting 3 friends before
coming back across the Atlantic to begin her
travels in the states.
9 stops altogether.
I crafted this book entirely
from crap I already had,
so absolutely free
(and maybe even better for it)
imperfections being so...
Once a church hymnal, now a LOVE hymnal.
sewn together with printed papers, artists papers,
shitty drawing paper
tracing paper and pockets.
Exploring the feminine face of God
in shades of blue...
photo album pocket holds tiny sign in book and instructions.
This is the first page...nine female goddesses
As above...so below...
when you lift Mary...a mermaid is revealed
and a poem by Cummings
this Angel represents wisdom...
the text is from my grandmother's book,
a page she had folded down and marked with pencil.
I was just hitting my groove,
coulda worked on this book til it was filled,
but I am excited to see what my friends will add...
to my Symphony in Blue.
(did you notice the saint medals dangling and jingling?)
I hope I shared a smidgen joy
and maybe some inspiration.
