#30dayjournal - Day 17

#30dayjournal Challenge Week 3

As I have progressed with this challenge (which I am now utterly behind on!).  I feel that these prompts have really helped me to identify and develop the visual language that I want to express as the Vaudeville Hippie aesthetic.  Now I am not sure whether this is because I am more regularly creating pages, and therefore I am becoming more confident with my journal page making, or if these prompts have tapped into the necessary part of my subconscious to allow me to express my ideas.  I think only time will tell.

#30dayjournal – Day 17: When Sparks Fly

The page above ‘When Sparks Fly’ was a real turning point in my #30dayjournal challenge journey, because the the prompt asked ‘who rekindles my creative spark?’.  As mentioned in the #30dayjournal Challenge Week 1 post, I have been really inspired by the journal pages of Ingrid Dijkers, Teesha Moore and since then I have also fallen in love with Jenndalyn‘s pages, who I discovered on Pinterest. What most inspires me about all three of these artists is their use of pattern, and I therefore used pattern as my starting point. The pink background was most definitely influenced by Teesha Moore’s vibrant use of colour.

#30dayjournal – Day 21: – Find your Higher Purpose

My favourite page has most definitely has to be this one above; ‘Find Your Higher Purpose’.   I wanted to explore the journaling process, to help with the development of my cloth doll making.  This page really reflects where I am at and where I would like to explore next.  I have always been fascinated by the concept of ‘Goddess’ and the feminine devine.  This is a topic which I have come back to over the years and this is probably why I am so drawn to Tribal Fusion Belly and Hoop Dance, which both seem to fit effortlessly into this area too.

With Spring just around the corner, I really like the idea of embodying the story of Spring into my next cloth doll.  I will be sharing this new journey on this blog.
