I started picturing a wonderful time in my life, and really that is hard, there have been many times when I have felt I was at my best. And this could be a time that is real or a future time if you think the best is yet to come. I chose a past time in my life, but now that I write this maybe I will have to do another page focused on the future. After meditating on that thought for a few minutes, I picked up my journal and just started writing it all down, when it was, how I felt, what I was thinking, where I was, who I was with, all those details. Then I quickly, without thinking too much about it, I jotted down feeling words, in a list, HOW I FELT. (This past part was sort of like the workshop) And I chose one word to focus on in my art journal. That word for me was abundance. I jotted it down on a piece of paper and just kept it beside me as I worked, and kept looking back at it and feeling that feeling again.
I started, of course, picking out colors, just three or four that I really felt drawn to as I thought about abundance. I also tore pages out of a magazine that called to me. I just started working, adding, painting, pasting, highlighting, and finally added my work abundance to the page. To me it really feels like "abundance". ABUNDANCE!
