I hope everyone had a nice restful long labor day weekend. I am back in the studio today with a monthly art journal prompt page. This page was the main August 2018 Mission Inspiration page from the facebook Mission Inspiration group created by Mike Deakin Art. Even though it is an August page I wanted to post it in September because it is a special page for me. One of the prompts this month was the word fearless. That word resonated with me. September is Ovarian Cancer awareness month and if you have read my bio, you will know I had ovarian cancer in 2013 and was clear in 2014. I am coming up on my 5-year milestone February 2019 so whenever I see that word fearless it just tugs at me. I looked back thru my old photos and found one of me back when I was all done with treatments and I had super short hair. I loved that curly hair, so easy to maintain. I found a few photos from that time and decided it was time to incorporate them into some journal pages. Now the creepy wolf in the photo, that was from a museum and with fall approaching I thought it was a good mesh of the past and coming holiday seasons. What I love about these monthly prompts is no two journal pages will be the same. A word or color can take you on a path you didn’t expect and really get you out of your box. So, without further ado here is my August 2018 “Fearless” Mission Inspiration page.
