I knew the northern lights would be bought in when I saw that Tam had called it star girl-there is something about them at the end of last year and this that sing to me. I added in the symbol from the warm up and a pocket on her dress filled with pencils.
Art wise I’ve learned a lot….I love smudging neocolour crayons with my fingers….it’s OK to use my much loved watercolours….that I prefer eyes that are flatter on the bottom…that posca pens are both awesome and arghhhhhhh…but mostly awesome.
On a deeper level I’m seeing things now I’ve finished that are important to me, but feel more important this year…..the purple and white….crown and 3rd eye…developing spiritually…conversations have just seemed to drift that way the last few days with a very old school friend and I arranging to meet and craft and during that conversation her wanting to try reiki (which I felt pulled to around 9 years ago and did training to master level).
The feathers….they are crows feathers….I see them everywhere at the moment. in 2015 and some of 2016 it was wood pigeons (symbol of creativity)…..and the triquetra….there’s something relevant about 3…..my birthday is on the 3rd but it may be moving life phase too…..there is a lot there still to discover.
But she is moving, she is doing….which is what I need this year. She reminds me to be present in every moment so that I can see and appreciate the abundance that surrounds me (that’s what I wrote on the pocket).
Whilst my inner critic has things they would change, don’t like from a technical point of view…they are also quieted by her..they too know she’s saying important stuff. Thanks Tamara Laporte for helping me do something that is so much more than a pretty picture, something that has me and meaning in it.
