A first

Another artist made a post with a link to Eric Scott, who has a website and other outlets about his visual journaling.  For some reason, his recent posts made me interested in doing this.

His blog is part of the Journal Fodder Junkies website.  He has videos, on-line classes or workshops, and a lot of info on his blog.  His most recent project is what he calls a “prayer journal”, though he stated he’s not religious.  So it will contain inspirational quotes and thoughts.  He is doing a several post series on the blog.

I decided to travel along with him.  My visual journal may be much like his, not so many prayers but I’ve been collecting quotes.  My first group are about Art.

But the very first entry will be a prayer…my favorite from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer.  I’ve done the layout and used some fiber paste with stencils to make a relief moon and stars since this particular one is from Evening Prayer.  This is a technique I learned from Janice Berkebile in her Mixed Media Play Day at Daniel Smith.

I’m using a Stillman and Birn Zeta.

    Looking forward to seeing where this adventure takes you! I did a ton of art journaling years ago. Just a few weeks ago I got rid of boxes and boxes of papers that I used to use for collage in those journals! If you shop at Tinkertopia, you might find it! 😉
