Art Journal Journey

Somehow I missed last month's Art Journal Journey, and this month I'm just squeaking in at the last minute, what with the move and everything. But here it is, just in time - living beings.

The circles on this page set the words from the hymn going in my head - creator of the rolling spheres, ineffably sublime. Then my thoughts went to something I read about stars singing (they vibrate at a particular frequency that corresponds to musical notes), although they cannot be heard in the vacuum of space.

And hence this page, with its many living beings in the widest sense.

And to join in with Carolyn Dube's play date week, this page also has some spray paint play on it - the mauve circles at the top right and the yellow ones at the bottom right are made using both sides of a stencil. I sprayed the mauve ink through and then used the excess on the stencil to 'stamp' at the bottom.


  1. Beautiful spread Tracy, I love your circles, the way you arrange them on the spread, you really make them dimensional!
