Soul Journaling Day 5

Today's soul Journal project was a two part er...

First Sarah had us:

I want you to do a light wash of a darker color of Acrylic paint over both pages. To do a wash just add water to your paints. I have done mine here in dark brown (AKA Raw Umber) but you may want to use dark purple, black, dark blue, etc.

I thought about doing the dark brown because Sarah's turned out so lovely but I am more partial to green so I selected a Deep Forest Green.

I did learn a hard lesson though. My color wash leaked through to some of my other pages because I have a "holy" journal. it got all over my Soul Armor page. I am okay with it...Athena is just a little bit green it made her look like moss has been growing on her for a bit. It did however mess up the flowers I had printed out on the photo paper. I think I can fix it but i am going to wait until it is all dry.

Here are my pages color washed before I dabbed them with a dry paper towel. See below for a photo of them dabbed.

Our Second task was to rip out magazine pages with the following images on the. we were not suppose to be concerned with size, just as long as we liked something about the image.

1.A smile
2.Something beautiful
3. a chair
4. something red
5. something blue
6. something comfortable
7. something exotic
8. a leaf
9. a color you love
10. a pattern
11. a flower
12. a bird
13. something you want
14. something you own
15. the letter R
16 something that smells good
17. something that tastes good
18. A circle
19. the letter A
20. An eye that’s the same color as yours
21. a hand
22. the letter T
23. a butterfly
24. a number

I think I found everything but the butterfly which i replaced with a dragon fly...kinda the same thing...I can't wait to see what we are doing with these images.

Some of my torn pages can be seen behind my color washed journal pages. can you guess what goes with what???

I love your color choice. I went with aqua although I loved Sarah's brown also. Love your smile picture I see in the background for tomorrow.
