Stillness

Heather's traveling journal had the challenging theme of "stillness." Peace, quiet, being still, etc. I was fortunate to find a discarded photo on the giveaway table at work that showed stillness perfectly--a lone fisherman in a tiny boat, surrounded by clouds, mist, mountains and trees. The gray and blue tones of the photo also spoke to me, so I used these on the journal spread. I sponged blue and gray paint on the pages and overstamped them with a skeleton leaf image. I cut up the photo and used it on the left-hand page as a set of ATCs (artist trading cards) to which I added ephemera and one line on each from a poem I found on the Internet. I found another poem by Ian Taylor on the Net and used that on the right hand page. The bird and border stamps are from a collection by Nan Johnson. I wouldn't mind finding a quiet mountain place to rest and reflect. Life is pretty hectic nowadays! I hope you all enjoy this offering. More art soon. . .

What a pleasure to read your process for my pages, Else. It is simply gorgeous and I am honoured that this artwork is in my journal.
