my heart is heavy - art journal page

I did this page last week after a rather tough weekend.......lots going on and all I can say is that I am so glad that I discovered art journaling.  It has really been my life-saver!  Having a place to creatively express my feelings has helped me in so many ways!  Even if I don't write anything down, my emotions still seem to come out and my brain is able to work through things as I rub paint around with my fingers and decide what layer to put on next.
 As you can tell, I was in a very sad and dreary place as I worked on this one....
 The heart is cut from a baby wipe that was used to wipe paint off of other projects. 
Lots of layers of acrylic paint, liquid acrylic paints dripping from the top of the page, stencils and a lace doily with color washes.....

Being a parent is the hardest job ever and there isn't anything worse than to know that your child is suffering.....thank goodness I have a place to let my own feelings out so that I can be there 100% for my child.  

I hope you all have some time to be creative this week.....the days are getting shorter, the air is getting that wonderful, crisp feeling to it and Autumn is almost here!

Take care and God Bless!
