The adventure of the Elements Art Journaling class has ended with "spirit" so I thought it would be a great word to explore this week. What has spirit meant to me on this journey? It means finding yourself no matter what. As you can see she's hidden but emerging in full color all at once. I have so enjoyed this rediscovery of my artistic self.
