Dawn & Lynn Shoot

I had a wonderful opportunity to document two strong and beautiful women and their friendship a couple of weeks back. I'm happy to have permission to post a few pictures!

My newest addition, note the plucked out eyelashes, the stains on her face, the missing arm and the wire around her neck, she's charming!

I am off to do a photo shoot in a couple of ours, okay 2.75 hours in case anyone is counting. I'm so excited, as I pack up clothing and props in case they want to play :) I have guns and doll heads and skulls and pearls and black velvet and real vintage fur as well as a big old fake fur coat... I have the lights - I even packed up fruit as an offering. I feel super charged and wish we could get going earlier. then this afternoon Damian is getting his hair cut so it's a full and busy and exciting day!

vision and belief

So today I got a last minute phone call giving me an opportunity to create a vision board, of course I grabbed the chance and rushed over to Dayna's studio to play! What I was met with was an opportunity to get deeper in touch with what I want out of life (with some guidance from Destree on a process aimed to help discover what that is). I gravitated towards prosperity, art, reclaiming my beauty and loving relationships. When I got home I grabbed a white gel pen and was going to start drawing some spirals, doodles, scribbles... but instead I decided to write my central word in all of the blank spaces between the images and words... Believe. I believe in myself, I believe in something greater than myself, I believe in my power to manifest my desires into the physical universe. Now I just need to seal it and find a place to hang it... somewhere that I can see it and remind myself that I have a right to desire these things.

Final Edit

adding on to the original. I like the juxtaposition between the darkness and the cartoonish elements of the collage with the different textures. I think it's done now.

princess, prayers, satietry, masks & heros...

Pages 5, 6: I really love this spread, Satiety and prayers for love...

Pages 4, 5: We need a Hero... This is not my favorite spread although I love all the pictures... the papers are a departure for me and I'm not crazy about the handwriting at the top. I do like the gold sheen and the 3D elements. Looks better in real life.

first pages!

Hidden amongst the first page is the quote "Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue, realize the strength, move on." Henry Rollins. I came across a scrap of paper I had jotted that on this morning!

Journal Making Journey!

Spent a wonderful day making a new handbound journal for visual journaling with my ever inspiring friend Dayna of Alley Art Studio, and my lovely and talented friend Destree, I will be taking Dayna's class to make another journal later in the month, but grabbed the opportunity to make another one as I've been whizzing through my pages and anticipate that The Walking in this World class will help keep me inspired as will our Orange Dream Monkeys gathering once a month at the Alley Art Studio. There was much laughter and creativity flowing and it was great to spend the day amongst good friends and covered in paint and inks - what I love best! It was a long, full, fulfilling day and I should be contemplating sleep so I'll keep this short. I'll blog my completed pages (1 1/2 page spreads) separately. The New Year is off to a great start!
