The second prompt for Journal with Mindfulness 2016 is What is your favorite color, what does it make you think of and how does it make you feel?
Yellow is my favorite color. It makes me feel energetic and ready to take on the day. I like to grow flowers. In the Spring I always plant sunflower seeds. It is a joy to look at them when they come into bloom in late August. It is as if the sunflowers captured all those rays of light over the warm summer months.
Below are my journal pages featuring sunflowers.
For my first step I glued pages of old books to the journal pages. I painted the page and used a wipe to remove some of the paint from the images that were already in place. I used a Tim Holtz stencil to add some interest to the page. I then painted the sunflowers over the background. Finishing the pages with a few more stenciled images.
