My journal play in Jenny's
'The Bee's Knees'
began with pulling out my acrylic paints stashed in the campervan and taking over mama's studio.
As I joyfully used every colour in the box my head was pondering how this could somehow relate to Jenny's theme. Minor detail I assured mum and reluctantly set it aside to dry.
Next stage was pulling at all together into some cohesive page. Out came black and white. I used posca paint pens and signo gel pens. I love this kind of journal play and find it medative, even over the riotous colour play. Its just like life really, it can be pretty chaotic and we need to find our pace or space to rise above it and make the best of it all.
Overnight in the campervan I was pondering symbiosis and thinking about this journal swap, and our beautiful supportive art group and how good it is to be part of a community. The next morning the joural beckoned and it came to me that ants live symbiotically and have done for ever. They work together cohesively and have amazing beneficial relationships with various plants and other insects. So my page then became an ant colony abd I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
