Creative Every Day 2009

I want you all to know that I have really been Creative Every Day! It's just that things needed to be done in steps; things needed to dry; a journal needed to be bought; etc. So after a few days of arting, this is what I came up with. I joined a Yahoo Group called Soul Journal which I just happened to chance upon while blog surfing. This was like a gift from above! There are prompts there every week, if you need one, and now my Creative Every Day 2009 journal and Soul Journal are one book. I do have other journals that I will art in and post from time to time. But this is my year for healing and I do feel that this is the journal I will probably work in most often.

The latest prompt for the Soul Journal is Dream Weave. I chose a couple of my favorite water color mists and sprayed hot pressed water color paper. After weaving, gluing and trimming, I pasted it to the back inside cover of my journal. It's actually a pocket:
The pocket holds Dream Strips that I'll write on. These strips will be a great way for me to RELEASE (my Creative Every Day 2009 word...) those bad vibes and dream of a healthier and more creative way to live my life. Are you getting the inter-connectedness here???

Here is the first page of my RELEASE Soul Journal. It's a little cluttered, but boy, did I have a GrEaT time making it! I guess because I made it for ME!!!!!

I love what you're doing with journalling and I think it's meant to be since it's all so interrelated and the results are so full of beauty.

You know what I like about your "Release" year the most? That it is allowing me to see your soul more clearly. And that feels like such a gift to me, sweet friend! So even while you are releasing for yourself, you are still touching others - which is the best of both worlds, I think! :)

I love your self portrait too! I did one as well, although I printed the picture because I'm still afraid to do the drawing thing. Urgh. :)

May Fairy Wings Touch Your Soul This Weekend, Sweetling! Hugs, Tam
