Yesterday, I got a package from my sweet, incredibly talented friend e.b..
That kind of package makes me so excited because Elizabeth gets me very well, and knows what kind of treasures make my heart glow bright.
Inside was this bundle of hand made love with e.b. all over it !
Included in these “kimcushions” were little bits of stuff I recognize, even some fabric remnants I had shared with her,
and best of all,
the loving handy work by my favorite magic maker.
It felt like a big cozy hug from my friend.
A cool thing happened right after I took this pic of myself feeling the love.
My phone rang and it was Elizabeth ! She is in Nebraska taking care of her dad after his knee replacement surgery, and she was missing me just as much as I am missing her.
Our conversation was like another great hug.
I am so very grateful for our heart connection.
Another little bit of synchronicity happened as I was writing this post.
Yesterday right before I received my package from e.b., I was working in my 6X6'” journal with a new stencil I ordered from MaryBeth Shaw’s awesome company, Stencil Girl Products.
When I went to check the name of the stencil this morning so I could include it here, I discovered that it is called : “Connections”.
This is very fitting, and it is also the name of this two page spread I did in my journal.
I used this great stencil designer by artist Wendy Aikins as a background on my pages,
spraying with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sunflower and Oriental Poppy.
Then, out came the Faber Castell pens and some major doodling happened,
picking up some of the designs I have been using on my Rock Beings.
I guess I am creating my own new language of symbols. Again, making connections throughout my artwork.
I used Twinkling H2O’s to add in my color. The paper in my journal is too porous to do blending with my pens but the H2O’s are watercolors with great pigment so they blended well.
Connections – Art Journal Pages – 2/4/13
So I think this is the theme for the week.
a cool one to explore.
What connections are you discovering and celebrating, Beautiful Ones ?
Big, big Love to you !
