Week in A Life Art Journal Day 6 (Parenthood)

This week, inspired by Ali Edwards' Week in a Life project, I'm featuring pages from my Art Journal which reflect typical, daily activities.  They are examples of using an art journal as a visual diary. This page reflects on a conversation I had with a friend about the very difficult time they are having with their child.  Background is paint on textured gesso. Image is a picture of a stairway I took (Notre Dame Cathedral). Embellishments are the negatives from where I cut stamped hearts from painted paper (placed on tags and old library file cards).  Top texture is gesso.

Another lovely page - that Art Journal must be bursting with lovely things now! I recognise the hearts and golden themes, from your Raising a Daughter page... nice to continue an idea and develop it further.
Parenting is indeed a journey of the heart; and a learning experience for all concerned!
