Willowing again??? Yes! I'm just now finishing week 4 of Art, Heart & Healing. This is the last week where Tam shows us how to create our healing invitation angel. We are to be open to receive healing from our angel - or higher power - for whichever need we are choosing to target.
So while we create our angel, we invite all the healing blessings to come in and change our lives - to manifest our need of choice.
And here she is...
Here are a few photos of my process...
Of course, I have not finished my background and words yet but I wanted to share her with you all.
It was very difficult for me to do this in such a small format as my 16 page art journal is an 8x10. Tam had suggested a canvas of 12x16 I believe. This is why her head is slightly bigger than her body proportionately, I couldn't do the face any smaller. Yikes, I don't like working quite this tiny! My previous portraits were done in a 7x8 inch journal. There was no way I could manage a full figure in that one! Lol.
I used a little of the caran d'ache watercolor crayons along with fluid golden acrylics this time. I had some of their wonderful metallics to play with. Fun!
Of course I listened to dreamy christmas music the whole time and took little breaks to work on my cards. The studio has sure been humming with activity!
To free my spirit, I've been taking a daily drive with my pup in the countryside and enjoying a s/f mocha from Dutch Bros. We only have one large Starbucks in town but about 5 little Dutch Bros. all over the county and they make the BEST mochas and hot chocolate ever! I did do a tiny bit of xmas shopping too.
Music in the studio was Sarah McLachlan (again!) - "Wintersong", and Enya's - "And Winter Came".
So until next time, keep those creative fires stoked!
Yours forever in art, Jessica
