Whilst I am off work on sick leave - I have just started a free journalling course Art, Heart & Healing run by Tamara Laporte, before I embark on her course Life Book 2015 (obviously in 2015) - I wanted to get a feel for the way Tamara works - see her website here - it is lovely.
So far I have worked in two books (at once) - an A5 sketchbook - the one which I started some time ago and showed you work in the last posts (its also the one which has my blog border designs in) and an A4 old work diary - where I glued and painted the pages to cover up the old notes. Both books were started some years ago one in 2007 and the other in 2009 - but I have not done much in either.
Here are the first two pieces - my first faces.... we started by writing stuff and then covering it up - this is a very useful exercise - letting go. The first is the big journal and then the small

Sadly I did not start the project back in July as I had wanted because I have not been well, however I have done one layout - on 4 September - it is quite large as the book is A4 size.

So maybe its time to blog about my journalling over the years and for the future. I hope to start a new journal exercise starting 1 July with a group of internet friends (This did not happen as I have been unwell !). For the moment I will let you know I have tried journalling in various forms over the years - some OK, some a bit less than average!! The header is one fun page from a 'Soul Journal' I tried some years ago - did not get too far with that but enjoyed some of the pages I had done - I will show you a few here over time. The side backgrounds are also another page from the same Soul Journal - it is me - or at least an outline of my head from a photo.
