This week I was asked if I would give permission to publish a link to my work about self-love. This art is from a class I took a couple of years back from Effy Wild . The article will be published at https://www.betterhelp.com/advice/ and I will keep everyone updated as to when the actual article goes live :-) I am so happy that I can help someone or ones out there in the world!
Book of Days is a year long art journal class which is run by Effy Wild Here is my week one spread in which I lay out my goals/words for the year. These are mindfulness, compassion, and loving kindness, all of which are very important in Buddhism as well as to me. These words are a reminder to me and I hope that I practice mindfulness, compassion, and loving kindness throughout 2018.
For 2018, I have decided to make my own art journal with my favorite paper-Strathmore 400 series paper- and bind the pages using embroidery thread. I love the Dylusions journals but found that it gets so fat that I can't use the last third of the pages because it won't lay flat anymore. We will see how this goes. I have used this type of art journal before and loved it. However, it took a while to assemble with all of the sewing. Effy Wild has an excellent tutorial if you are interested in binding your own journals :-) https://vimeo.com/56572967
