April Art Journal Pages



Once in a while..
I ask myself some important questions..

Who am I now?
Where do I want to go?
What do I want to create?









I have found that reflection on these 3 questions
makes a huge difference
for me personally and my work..










I think they are my favorite journal prompts..









Thinking about walking into the future and
what I want...
personally and professionally..








feet came up for me a lot..
this month..







as did the circle..







finding myself in circular patterns..
and knowing I have the power to walk out
whenever I wish..




Ingredients: Paper ephemera, mono prints, wrapping paper, acrylic paint, handmade papers, pencil, colored pencil...





I have certainly changed a lot in the last 3 years..
in some ways quite radically..
but mostly I have found that I am returning
to that inner child..
the one who knew so much truth..

I want to be just like... 

her..

This is beautiful and I can relate to these feelings completely. And circles pop up in my work all the time. Loving your colors also.

When I was young, I didn't realise that life just keeps going and changing. That we keep changing and what we need changes. I have recently gone through seeing that what I need now is quite different from my habitual ways of living. It is such an exciting journey.

Wonderful art and thoughts. The thoughts are related to mine, but I couldn't express it in this wonderful way!
The spread is awesome.

Claire said...

Oh how I love all this - the powerful images, the inspiring questions! Just perfect for the New Moon today and my birthday on Friday - thank you :)

Dorthe said...

Beautifully expressed on your spread, dear Cat. As years move behind us, I think many of us, comes to rest more, in our own self, making new possibilities, new way of living ,giving and receiving . Accepting whom we are, and trying to live closer to our own dreams and thoughts, than when younger. A beautiful post and spread, with so much movement !!
Hugs, Dorthe

Beautiful pages, and beautiful insights as well. Insight= seeing into, as you have so clearly seen into yourself. Blessings to you on your journey, dear Cat!

Hi Susi, I am so glad our thinking is parallel and thank you for your kind comments! I so appreciate that! xo

Caterina Giglio said...

Hi Claire, I had not thought of them as powerful images, so thank you for that, just wanting to visualize where I am headed, and remembering how I felt at a much younger age. Thanks so much and hope you had a splendid birthday!! x

Caterina Giglio said...
