ART JOURNAL PROMPT
Your Story is Your Power by Elle Luna and Susie Herrick
"This might be the most powerful practice that you can use in your internal world. It will reward you for life if you put the effort into it. As you gently bring self-awareness to your inner voices and fix stations, you will gain the capacity to fire, higher, or retrain those voices and fix stations."
Select background and forefront images. After reading the prompt you can select images or start with some free writing to tune into what's wanting to come up for you.
Collage background images to a journal page. Leave the forefront images for later.
Cover with tissue paper. I wrinkled an old clothing pattern tissue but you could use watered-down paint on top of your collaged images.
Add background details. I added a little more tissue paper along with stenciling and a painted border.
Add forefront images. I intuitively arranged the images that I felt had significant meaning for my page.
Add anything you feel is missing. Here I added the sun rays to the top of the page.
Spend some time contemplating the results of your page spread. This is another great time to do a little free journal writing. Be open to what comes up and trust that you are receiving important gifts from within and without.
