All things Book of shadows (part 3 art)

(if you missed it. part 1 and part 2 you can find them at those links)

Art speaks to the soul like nothing else. it moves us, it makes us think, it soothes us. For me I also feel that art can speak in ways words cannot. While I love art and I wish (oh how I wish) I could draw or paint, sadly I can’t. I will keep trying but even before I can watercolor a beautiful landscape I can make my kind of art. My kind of art of course trends to collage and art journaling. I find images to use pretty much every where. I rip up old magazines saving any picture that speaks to me. I save images I have found online and I keep a whole pin board of art. I also keep images on my seasonal boards and on my Witchy board. Just recently I started keeping an art journal board and I am going to share some of what I have found with you here.

First this pretty book from this websiteAs much as I love I nice tea wash (I mean come on is there a way I don’t like tea?) This makes such a pretty back round and makes a typed pages that much more special. Of course I’m not the only Witch who thought this would make a beautiful book.

Check out her whole post for more pictures, while your there follow her blog because it is pretty awesome and she makes lots of cool pagan crafts.
Next up is this fun blog that shows you how to prep a book if you are going to use it for art journal. Magically speaking I would make sure the original book is about something you are OK with. Words have power, even words hidden under layers.
I also found this site with 7 links to get you started  with art journaling. Which I liked as something simple instead of getting overwhelmed with all the options out there.
I will leave you with two videos. the first one Shows a massive amount of different techniques and the second one is so beautiful I just had to share them both!

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
