Art Journaling ~ The Girl on the Wall

This girl on the wall seems so calm and serene and to the contrary, my life feels like it’s going a zillion miles an hour right now.  May we all have the Courage to be Ourselves no matter what challenges we face.

    Love this page Marjie – the quote n image really struck a nerve with me – a very emotive piece of art .

  2. The black border really makes the pressure visible. The expression on the dear one’s face shows the struggle of keeping true to the self. Very clever use of light and dark and space to give strength to the message. Looking at this I have learned something and felt joy. Thanks for posting it.

  3. A wonderful quote and a great page.
