Daily Art Devotions: Day 12 and 13

So…I’m playing catch up with #DailyArtDevotions 40-day #artjournal journey with Elizabeth Foley. I found out the reason I’ve not been feeling good is that I have strep. Normally, I would push through anyway, but not this time. I listened to my body which was clearly telling me to slow down, and I took a few days off from everything and laid on the couch binge-watching some old and new shows. I’m still not 100%, so I’m taking things slowly.

For Day 12, I made a collage that represented the many different lives I thought I would be living. As I was looking at pictures to cut out, many dream lives from different stages of my life came up for me. Some I’ve achieved even if for a brief moment, others I have learned to let go of.

Here are a few that came up for me. I’m sure there are many more.

It was fun thinking about all the dreams I have had for myself over the years.

For Day 13, I added wings with a stencil and gesso to a magazine ad that I thought was beautiful. I added a kind of golden energy around her and coming to her from above to serve as a reminder that I don’t have to do everything on my own. I also added some white dots to serve as magical stars. Both the gold spirals and magical stars were added with paint pens since it was a glossy ad that I used.
