When I got home from kendal I managed a short time in the attic making a journal page - its my entry to the first Wanderlust challenge - wow you should see the work that was submitted - the standard was incredible - now I have no illusions that my piece is any good or going to win - but I did enjoy the process. The idea was to think about something that has frightened you but has actually set you free... when I lost Shaun I was absolutely terrified of being on my own - but now I find it quite liberating - don't get me wrong - I would share my life with Shaun again in the blink of an eye - but I guess my piece is about trying to find the positives in loss - if there are any and if that makes sense! I'm gibbering i think.
I heard this song on the way back from Kendal and it seemed to fit ...
From darkness of loss ....
into the light of positivity and the good in life.
I used the Kim Costello Paperbabe templates to help do the figure ... not perfect but I like it.
We were also supposed to reflect on a lesson on composition to make this piece - I have tried to apply the rule of thirds plus a none central focus point plus added darkness in a balanced way. Well I think so anyway!!! Lol!! Probably got all that wrong!! Nevermind!
I can't believe its February tomorrow - how did that happen???
