Looking for Wisdom
Words of Wisdom arrived with winter, things were insanely busy with trying to sell our house and homeschooling and just family life.
I wasn't too concerned as I can usually create a reasonable spread in our allocated month fairly easily and incubation time always takes up the begining of the month for me.
I love the arrival of a new journal. I love the anticipation and excitement and I love that first perusal over a cuppa.
I tend to put it on the shelf then and let my ideas brew. Sometimes I will look through the journal a few times in this process until my idea starts to form.
Sometimes I dont get an idea at all!
I just start playing and let it happen.
And this page is one that evolved on the page, intuitively.
After 6 days sick in bed I was desperate to art despite have no wisdom on what I would create.
I just doodled all over the page with intense pencils then activated with watered down white and a tiny brayer. Looking at what came out made me think of pebbles on a beach and away I went.
