She makes her own bedspreads. She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
Proverbs 31:22 (NLT)
Today finds me in Proverbs 31. I knew immediately I was going for purple, my favorite color.
I began with a base of Inktense purple.
Then I waited and looked through magazines for inspiration, and this happened.
I don’t have a step-by-step, but here is today’s creative process described by one of my children who spends quite a bit of time with me.
Aighty, so my mom worked for three hours straight (no exaggeration and no bathroom breaks) on this one page, constantly saying, “Oh, this looks pretty good, but it looks like I could add something.” And she sat there flipping through all on-hand magazines with her bony tendrils trying to find the thing that the picture looked like it could use. Finally, she said, “This looks good.” AND THEN SHE SAID, “But wait…. it could use something….” Eventually she accepted the fact that it looked fine and she just went with what she had.
I guess time really does fly when you are absorbed in what you love to do, and I needed this creative space today. (And I am positive it wasn’t three STRAIGHT hours and that I took bathroom breaks.)
Here is the open journal. I find it interesting that purple is opposite mountains. Also, there is something added after the above page was finished. Because it could use something.
I really love this page. And here is a post about one of the Proverbs 31 women in my life. I love her a lot, too.
Now it is time to put this day to rest.
