Week 2 - of Art Journal Journey


Posting my first two cards together...sorry the scan is a bit "light" - the colors are much more vibrant than this pic shows.... ANYWAY... the first prompt was "what are you proud of" - I listed a few things I accomplished the first week of this new year....getting involved in new art challenges among them!
This week's prompt is "what is powerful to you?" I immediately thought of a scrapbook LO I saw recently, with words listed - positive ones, and negative ones with a red strikethru....a visual reminder about the strength of words....and it has stayed with me.


My journaling on the back of the card reads:

"What is powerful to you?

WORDS. They have the power to heal or hurt...

to lift up or to tear down...

to embrace or to divide...

to teach or to torment.

Words are powerful.

Use them wisely."


It's a lesson I have yet to master---this prompt will help me be mindful of its importance to me.

EDIT: retitling this for you Aimee, sorry I confused you! Swirls!
