Art Journal Every Day – Soul Armour

Hello! Hello! And Happy Friday to one and all!

Today I’d like to share an art journal page with you, that I made in response to a prompt from Sarah Whitmire’s ‘Soul Journal’ page which asked us to construct our ‘soul armour’. The idea is that we would create a suit of armour and incorporate things we need more of in order to protect ourselves, or the things we want to shield ourselves against.

And this is what came of it:

Creative tool- kit for this page: 1 black Sharpie, 1 black biro, green acrylic paint, grey acrylic paint, scraps of patterned paper (the inside of an envelope that once housed a bank statement, and a piece torn from a magazine page).

I also added a few quotes about strength and fear. These are:

  • Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure… than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.  (Theodore Roosevelt) AND
  • Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom. (Bertrand Russell)

I hope you’ve all had a great week, and I can’t wait to hop over to Julie’s blog and see what the rest of the AJED-ers have been up to these past few days…

P.S. All quotes came from
