Intentions: Layered Journal Page 1


Despite the distractions of snow and schoolwork, I'm making good progress with my layered journal. I'm using the first page as a place to set intentions. The yoga pose is half moon, one I am having difficulty doing without wobbling, and which I am working on improving. I'm thinking about twilight (no, not the vampire books) with this page, and how my memories of evening are related to waking up and feeling alive, not winding down, which connects to the idea of becoming more awake in all aspects of life. I wish the colors would photograph more accurately, because the blues are much more ethereal in person. And, sadly, you can't see the glitter. The margins are filled with words and ideas that relate to what I want to accomplish by creating this journal, and I left space at the top to add in additional thoughts.

I don't think you can ever fully catch the beauty of such a complicated thing like a journal page. I do find my scanner does a better job than my cheap camera though. Loving your work!

It's so cool how you did it as a negative, lovely.

So what's after the first page?

I've started working on the other pages, and mostly have been adding layers of paint and words. I am focusing them on defining a few ideas, such as "what does it mean to be fully present in life?" and "what and where is my imagination?" I'll post some details a little later on, when they have a few more layers...

I love altered books and journals. They are so much fun to make and to look back on.
