Spread 218 – Heart and Soul on Paper

Spread 218 – “Heart and Soul on a Page”

15 January 2017

“6.5 X 8” altered book

Nova color and PaperArtsy paint, black and white gesso, distress inks, matte medium, matte gel, vintage and personal papers.

I was fortunate enough to spend the weekend at an Orly Avineri art retreat with a group of wonderful artists. This spread is from Orly’s wonderful class. Gifts were given, feelings were re-awakened. So many feels. As someone said “we put our hearts and soul on paper”. I have not really art journaled in many months. I finally felt like myself, and was fully opened.  So grateful. Thank you Orly. With so much love and admiration.

    Love this Brian and I love you. Journaling is exactly that heart and soul on paper- and also what Orly said in April when we were together- it’s a short cut to our heart. Thank you for sharing- so happy to have our friendship.
