Day 4 - Goddess Journal

A while back I bought an engagement calendar from the year 2000 that featured the Return Of Goddess.  I picked it up with the intention of using it to craft, but then decided to turn it into an art journal.  A Goddess art journal.  Dedicated to the Goddess within me.  Another item I'm using is a vocabulary card set that I picked up at a second hand store which includes words and the definitions. I will pick a card and journal that card.  Today's word was antithetical, and Webster's says, "the rhetorical contrast of ideas by means of parallel arrangements of words, clauses or sentences".  I find this fascinating since this is a Goddess journal and all of that energy is above the dualistic thinking, more along the lines of paradoxical.  So here is the first page in my new Goddess journal, and also day 4 of 31.

I started the background with Prisma Art Stix and colored the background in half.  Then drew some circles.  I then found some words from magazines and glued them down with Elmers glue.  I  added some butterflies to signify the transformation and finally, I used a stencil and filled it with Liquitex white gesso.  

 Added some ink around the edges and the gesso'd circles.

Finished in with some words, white color pencil, and some black ink.  




Have a wonderful evening!!
