New Birch Moon dreamboard

I love beginnings - the surge of energy, the planning, the potential - so the first New Moon of a new year is always a favourite time :)

It's all change with my dreamboards - I am now combining New and Full Moons in my New Moon A3 journal having filled my trusty Full Moon journal to bursting...

So each dreamboard will be on one A3 page. I already like it as there's no curly spine to interrupt the flow of images :)

Top left is a page from last year's wall calendar from Rima Staines 'Queen of Winter' (2014) on which I've written words that Birch (Beith) inspires:

beginnings, renewal, inception, purity, healing, feminine energy, slender but hardy, graceful, silvery white, birch broom, clear, cleanse

Underneath is actually the front cover to the calendar - a gorgeous linoprint of a star-clad angel/goddess measuring out time with a compass over the Wheel of the Year...

Top right is an image of Holda (a favourite goddess!!) leading the lost children through the snow...

The rest of the page is full of images from an old, falling apart book (I'm afraid I can't remember what it was called). On the cup of coffee painting in the centre I've placed a sticker saying, 'Do What You Love' and a puff sticker on the cup itself that reads 'moments'.

I love all these images and how the page moves from dark at the bottom to light at the top... January's days are lengthening, but it's a v-e-r-y slow process...
