Journalling for Healing

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.

14 Sept 2014

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.

When I started the Soul Journal Course with Sarah Whitmire, way back in 2008 I made some lovely pages which I have played with in Paint Shop Pro - one of my favourites is this one: This is in an A5 sketchbook (what Anna using two books at once?? - Never!!)  The original is on the left and is, or rather was, my profile bak in 2008! I had such fun once I scanned the page and hope to use these pieces again for future work.
