Gesso tinted with Distress ink. “in my mind there are mountains” – letters printed with “rusty hinge” Distress ink pad. Stamped images – deer and Celtic. Gel pen. Includes art from Lilian deMello called “Ghost Dance” in bottom left corner.
When do lines mean words, and when do they mean places? What if they are the same? Can words be maps? Can maps be words? Are wrinkles small mountains? Hide and reveal.
While cleaning out my craft room I rediscovered my list of intentions for 2016. I’d not done many of them – perhaps because I lost the intention list. Can’t get anywhere without a map. Some I had done, and was glad. Some I’d forgotten about, and have refocused my commitment. One thing on it was to make an art journal page at least once a week. I had some time off from work so I decided to catch up a bit.
