Wrecking Sisters....



I was offered an invitation this week that I just could not resist. Grammy asked me if I would like to do a bit of Journal wrecking with them. Jamie had finished her group and these wonderful women wanted to continue wrecking together. I have watched with fascination this summer as all of you have offered up bits and pieces of these fascinating journeys. So..I decided to give it a rip and join in the growing and creating.

Now be patient with me..I am new at this. I have not done a mix of collage with my artwork before..so this one..I am getting my toes wet so to speak. More words next time I think..yes??? Thank you Grammy for having me!! I am delighted!



As to the meaning here? I do work for sale..lots of work. It is my joy and bliss. The chance to do work for my own soul..double bliss!!! So I am jumping in and diving deep to find the me in the work. What my soul wants to doodle and why it does. So..here she is a mermaid..the ocean calls me always. Invites me to delve into the deep of me. We shall see what treasures I collect there. Namaste, Sarah

I am most particularly entranced by the dolphin's sweet expression...

Sarah,
I don't know why there was a problem - probably a Blogger glitch. No restrictions on my side. I would be so honoured if you would try again.
And thank you for your kind comments!

Pondering and planning an embellished quilt of a mermaid has been in my heart for MONTHS, Sarah! LOVE your sketch and what a lovely way to start your journal! I agree the dolphins expression is sweet but the mermaid strikes me as wondering. TERRIFIC!

Oh, I got my package and LOVVEEEEEEEE the drawing! I'm taking it to the frame shop ASAP! It will live either in my quilting room or in my cubicle at work!! Thank you, also, for the cute little dog and pumpkin card! You are so darn creative, girl!! :-) Polly

Sarah, This is beautiful. I love the details. You are so creative. You never know what direction an art journal will lead but it is very rewarding to let you inner child create explore.
Namaste,
Grammy

You should delve more into the deep you. This is beautiful! Make something for you once in a while and you may find a lot of other things that you would like to do to sell.

Blessings,
Christine
