Here’s “the rest of the story” in my Exploring Magenta Weekend Journal:
“What is in comes out” right? Sometimes without us knowing it. That happened to me in the last journaling class. My artwork reflected my inward struggle and I didn’t know it until someone (two someones actually) pointed it out. I almost painted gesso over it and started over, and then I said to myself, “Wait a minute! Isn’t that what journaling is about? Getting what’s beneath the surface out, where it can be seen and then healed? So, I left it in and wrote about it in this journal.
The flowered strip page added in the center of the journal was done with a stencil, and then I added the doodles with a Pitt pen and white gel pen. Then color was added to the last page of the strip shown in the last two images below.
