Gaia Mother Earth in Louise journal

Gaia - From the Greek word "yaia", a parallel form of y2 (ge) meaning earth.

In Greek mythology, Gaia was the mother goddess who presided over the earth.

Divine Mother, holy one.
Bless us with your grace.

The warmth of a summers day, life-giving rain. 
The winds of change, the perfection of a snowflake. 

Divine Mother, bless us with your grace. 

Swirly background created with acrylic paint and fingers. I love finger painting. 

Then she started to emerge, I had originally thought about creating her with collage, however, once I had the paints out I decided to keep going. 

Now the tricky part, what to do on the other side of the spread.

Went for a mandala, so I had something to write around. 

Added a few butterflies and all done. 

It was an absolute pleasure to work in Louise's journal. 
I hope you like it.
