Journal 52 : Week 4

Journal 52 is a weekly prompt from Effy Wild that I'm creating on a deck of jumbo playing cards. Each card will include stitch, a found word, and be inspired by the project I've been working on that week or what's lying leftover on my work table. See the original post HERE.
#4 : Attend. Inspired by my Pohutukuawa in my Year of Rumi spread (see previous post), some yummy new art supplies, and Effy's PDF about paying attention to the things that matter to me. Art is helping me navigate some difficult territory this month. I find that the process of art journaling engages my brain in a way that takes me out of my day and provides stress relief, new discoveries, escape, and joy. The trick (for me) is to just start with no expectations - to just try and enjoy the process for its own sake, and suddenly I'm in the zone. The card already had gesso applied before a layer of new lovely Magical colour sprinkled with salt for texture whilst still wet
Machine stitched flower and hand stitched beads. I definitely needed the extra card glued on the back to cover up the stitching this week ♥

  1. Magnificent work with those tiny beads! So glad to see that you're creating to heart's content, Lynette! I fell off the wagon as I felt I needed a little break. I can see I have a lot to catch up on - I only glimpsed at some of your projects on social media. Hope, you're well, thinking of you even though I haven't been around much xx

    1. Thanks Zuszsa. I am losing myself in creative projects. Glad you've had a break. I often have low productivity in winter too. I feel very lucky to have this joy in my life.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I will always respond to you so check back here in a couple of days.
