January and February Journal Pages

January and February, where did they go? I decided to take the year long journal challenge posted by Stampington on Instagram. I miss working in my journals, other things seem to call me away these days so I figured what better way to keep me on track other than a challenge to create a page a month. 
 
 January's challenge is to create a page celebrating new beginnings. I chose to create a page representing the coming of Spring which brings beauty, new birth, and the hope of new beginnings.

 The wording which extends to two pages reads:       "Seeking everyday Beauty"  
"Happy little birds were singing all around of speckled eggs the birdie sings, and nests among the trees; The Sailor sings of ropes and things, in ships among the seas."
 Every story has an ending ~ every ending is a new beginning

 February prompt was to use RED, PINK and WHITE

 "I need this moment to be mine, so I will know if I am brave enough to be alone."

The paper quote was gifted to me by a friend and is from Virginia Woolf, The Lighthouse. 
"For now she need not think of anybody. She could be herself, by herself. And that was what she often felt the need of - to think, well not even to think. To be silent, to be alone. All the being and the doing, expansive, glittering, vocal, evaporated; and one shrunk, with a sense of solemnity, to be oneself, a wedge-shaped cope of darkness, something invisible to others... and this self having shed its attachments was free for the strangest adventures."

 There is not greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you~

 Now on to March which will bring wind and new adventures and a new journal prompt to "doodle".

  Wishing you JOY today!

  1. Wonderful pages! I just always love to see your art. It puts a happy smile on my face... especially your quote "I need this moment to be mine, so I will know if I am brave enough to be alone." That's what journaling is all about to me. Being artistic is brave!
