Start of a new journal

Well I started my new journal, I debated and finally thought that continuing can only help me to develop so on I go! I worked a prompt from Art techniques yahoo group for "My Eyes", I started this while on holiday but now have added to it with gel pens, and i am very pleased with the result.
Next was Kathryn's Instant gratification prompt for the new Soul journal yahoo group. All you had to do was find a pic from a magazine that spoke to you, and then make a heading relating, draw contour lines and fill in with writting on the topic. This was really fun! The mask was a mega find!
I chose to write about how we all hide behind a mask, a facade.
Parting shot here is my catalogue in the garden. I chose 2 IKEA catalogues as they have such lovely colours and patterns! Can't wait to see what goes on with this next. See Maggie's blog for details.

Love the mask page - you did a great job with that. I look forward to seeing what you do with the disintegrating Ikea catalogues! Don't forget to slash them!

Hi Carol,
You have a wonderful blog, and I do love your journal pages...especially the eye and the mask pages! It's interesting to think about what we tend to hide, from others and ourselves!
Glad to be on this Soul Journey with you!
Blessings!
Bev

These are great! I love your creativity and artistic touches -- perhaps these will help get me back on track with my behind-projects (think arches!)
