A Tree In the Midst: Mixed Media Art Journal
In The Midst
Despite how busy life has been as of late I continuously find joy in the midst of these busy times through God’s many blessings. I am reminded of how healthy our family is when I see so many friends around us fighting for their lives as they battle cancer. My sweet babies are growing like crazy which is both bittersweet and a blessing. My hubby has been in his new job for a few months and spends more time in travel and comes home later, frequently missing family dinner. But how thankful we are that he has a job. We have had our fair share of trials over the past few years but despite it all, God has been good to us. And in the midst of it all, he never left us alone to fend for ourselves.
So, when I see the tree in the middle of the circle, I am reminded that there is still life somewhere in the midst of chaos. Life that brings joy.
Creating The Journal Cover
The base of this journal was a comic book. I covered it with a brown paper grocery bag. I started to use a medallion stencil on the cover but last minute decided to scrape off the texture paste leaving only the outline of the medallion. I used two colors of Infusions on the background and stamped a Unity stamp that has been embossed in gold. The tree is a die-cut that has been painted.
I am so glad that my Colors of India journal is finally complete! Bellow are links to the inside pages.
