I can tell by the way I am struggling to create my pieces of art that I still need work. I can journal all my emotions, however, translating that onto my art journal page has become somewhat of a challenge. Which is the reason I am trying to art journal one page a week. I want to see and share my progression with you. This last weekend I was inspired to create my Root Chakra page on a 11 x 14 canvas that I picked up at Big Lots. I was unable to start it until Saturday afternoon. Then it progressed. I'm still working on it but here is the start.
I used acrylic paints for the background. Red, White, and Black. I was inspired by the idea of dualism and looking beyond it, which inspired the black and white background. I believe in order to balance this chakra I must go beyond this state of thinking.
I then used a CD to create a circle. I added paint to it, put it on the canvas and rotated it to create a circle. I then spray painted, in silver, 7 little circles, added a flower with a heart shaped brad. The buttons were added last. So far, I'm loving it.
Used some rubber bands and mini clothes pins and laid them down as stencils a la Traci Bautista and spray inked them in red and added the word RED. I then took some bleach and a stamp. I dipped my stamp in a bleach soaked face towel and stamped the canvas wherever I felt it was needed. It looks more prominent on the light side. I like how it looks textured and not recognizable.

Wishing you lots of healing and exploring!
