He-art Journal Week 1

Well, I'm doing the TGF He-art Journal Class. The Week 1 assignment was to use a wings theme. It was to be a two page spread. Anna Beth also decided to play along. Here is what we did:

Anna's Cover and her hand sketched pages:

This was her first time stamping. She chose images that reflected her different moods. 

She worked on her little fairy and her bird for quite a while. Shushing me often because I'd break her concentration...LOL! I'd hoped she'd color it a bit but this is her journal and this is how she wanted it. {Smiling}

Here is what I put together:

My cover was so much fun. to create. Love the way it came out.

I used a variety of images, medias and let myself go a bit here. I didn't want it to feel too planned. This is about my heart, so of course there is meaning and symbolism here. I left the journaling off the page, too personal to share. I will share one thing...the music notes represent the song(s) of my heart.

Well, we'll be back to share the Week 2 pages. They are to be based on a Sun, Sand, Beach theme this time. Hmmm? I've got a jar with the white sands of Marco Island that just may get a little lighter this week...just a current idea.

Keep those hands busy!
