What feeds my soul

I came across this quote the other day, "She dances to the songs in her head, speaks with the rhythm of her heart, and loves from the depths of her Soul", and knew I just had to do an art journal page.

I decided to try my hand at collage this time around, something I have been wanting to do ever since I came across Teesha Moore's website. I decided to use images of things that feed my soul.

Drawing faces is something that i am really loving these days. So I started out with a copy of 2 whimsical faces that I drew.

I then flipped threw magazines and tore out pages of other items I am drawn to. Things like books, good food, nature, art, colorful things, and travel to name just a few. Next step was my background. I used a wash of several acrylic paint colors.

I then started playing around with my collage. Rearing and gluing down bits as I went.

Finally I added some doodling, shading, and my words. I am submitting this to the Inspirational Journal Challenge Show it with Words. Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to do what feeds your soul.

  1. This is the best piece I have seen you make. i should say pieces as they really do seem to come from You. Teesha is a great source and spring board for moving into a new direction and stretching yourself.
