I doubt I'll see the Full Moon tonight - thick grey cloud, wind and rain *sigh* But I can still feel its energy, and I trust Summer will eventually arrive :)
AND Collage no. 2 of my new project (no. 1 in post below).
I'm using this journal - the A4 size - found at the back of my art cupboard :)
The large image is from an old diary - I never throw anything away! I've written some words on the woman's arms from the poem (upper right, source unknown).
I will sing. I will listen and embrace.
I will sit with ease and purpose.
The other words are clipped from magazine adverts. I buy out-of-date glossy mags from a local market stall (3 for £2), so I'm happy to chop them up :) Other folk I know ask their dentist/doctor/hairdresser for any old magazines to cut up and collage.
Upper left is an image from a old children's book of Bible stories, upper right is a page from an old Toast catalogue on which I've stuck words and an image. Sadly, I don't remember where the wonderful hot-air balloon pilot came from, but I think she's stunning!
Lower left is an image from Vintage Life magazine and lower right is clipped from an old Susan Seddon Boulet diary with the image 'Hatching' (1984) and the quote:
The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.
Ursula K. LeGuin
I must say I am SO enjoying these daily collages - and of course my beloved Moonboards! They inspire me and so far I'm finding it easy to tap into my creativity... We'll see how long it lasts, but I rather like the 'not knowing what comes next' on the next page of My Story :D
There's a new button on my sidebar - thank you Elizabeth for telling me about Enchant Your Everyday! It's FREE and starts on the Summer Solstice (21 June).
