You Can Never Lose True North

Video of an art journal page that reminded me of a very important message

Art journaling has such power for me.  Why? Because sometimes it reminds me of important messages from time to time. And that is exactly what happened today.

Notice her chin.  There’s no paint there and that is rather unusual since this was a print from a fully loaded Gelli Plate.  And then I stamped right over it without even realizing there was a paintless spot.

What was her message?  Even if she takes one on the chin, she will be a survivor because she always knows where her True North is.

Here’s a video of how my Gelli printing turned into an art journal page.

    Fabulous page and lesson. She is one of my favorite stamps, because, well…I’m a Survivor, too. Hence, the last name Phoenix!

    Love how you got her to be right out in front surviving. Her chin is a great reminder of strength.

    This is one of my favorite pages I’ve seen you do! Strong image from a stamp yet it stops being someone else’s and becomes yours. This still have your love color but does not challenge the message of survivor. Well done. Truly well done.
