There is something so romantically delicious about a garden. As blossoming wisteria cascades eagerly around my arbor columns like fairies bursting with a great story to share, I become one with nature's song. She is my quiet, shady retreat where the life force of the soul meets the creativity of the mind. I have had many a conversation with the summer breezes in this sacred place and listened to her secrets being whispered upon the wings of hummingbirds. Here among the vibrant blooms, I have made friends with uncertainty and embraced possibility and in the fullness of my appreciation for the vitality my garden breathes into me each and every day, I offer up my gratitude for the sweetness of all her gentle gifts.
I was going to do a tutorial on the making of this journal page but half way through I forgot to make scans. *sigh* I guess that what happens when you become so involved in creativity. Here is Doll No. 4 and she is ready to make her way to the beautiful state of Connecticut.
For this page I wanted to do a garden theme because I love the peacefulness of a beautiful garden, especially the garden of my dreams which still lives in my dreams until it manifests as reality. Using journals as a visual aid can help you manifest dreams more quickly and so I have captured the essence of how a garden looks and feels to me. I hope you enjoy.
