Elements class wk 02

Hello again ;0) I have been in bed all week so sorry I haven't been round much (I have ME and Fibromyalgia) it can knock me completely off my feet some times. Any way it's nice to be back and I have been able to do some crafting today, so I thought I would share ;0). I am really enjoying the class that the lovely Effy is doing over in wild precious ning group there is always a link to this group on my side bar as I love 52 Pages and other groups I like to join each week ;0)

There is an exercise before you do the journalling and let me tell you is was very worth doing. You don't have to go deep by doing the exercises you can just do the journalling part but I am so glad I am participating in the whole of the course, it's so positive. Now I went a little deep in my journal spread this week, as this was all about earth and your body. I used all the memorials of those who have died (news paper) as back ground paper, as my feeling is that all our bodies go back to the earth in one way or another. I then added colour washes and brayered with a bit of gesso. After that creating lots of texture and layers (more earth).

I took a photo of my naked self  and painted away. Then with the exercise I had completed I inked some of the words I came up with for the earth that I felt my body also related to. There is still time to join in  (15/07/11) is the closing date to enrol,  you do get to keep some great PDFs and down load all the videos to keep so you can do this when you can fit it in and the discussions excetera will always be available ;0) I will share each week what I have been doing so you can at least get a taste of the elements class. Love Dawn xx
