Spread 178 – My Journals Are Not Pretty

10 July 2014

Acrylic Paint, Black Gesso, Matt Medium, Vintage and personal images.

These are my journals, they are not pretty. They hold my truths and my stories. I tell them until I don’t need to tell them any longer and they have no power.

    This is definitely not “not pretty”… (-;
    It’s a beautifully strong spread…
    fascinating to see how it all unfolds for you…
