A Reflective Glow.
First of all, congratulations to "A Vintage Journey" in celebrating 5 years of this wonderful challenge blog. Have really enjoyed dipping into the mix of fabulous creations from the team and seeing the myriad of entries that you have sparked.
I began to think about my own journey and wrote down my thoughts for the future onto this page before I added anything. I wrote about wishes for the future for members of my family and for myself.
The image of the sun emerging from the clouds jumped out at me from a magazine and I had to add this to my piece.
As I assembled my papers, stencils, stamps and words, I became reflective of my family from the past and decided to find a family photo that would fit around how I was feeling.
So, I squished and stamped and rubbed and flicked and aged and blended and scribbled down more thoughts and I came up with this!
The tree is stamped onto acetate . I have used fresco paints, lots of fragile papers, stabilo pencil, uniball pens , excerpts from books and alcohol inks.
This piece has left me feeling calm and satisfied. Can't beat a bit of reflective journalling to soothe the soul.
So, I am entering this into the the A Vintage Journey challenge for March 2019.
