My July Journal page


July was a busy month so I am a couple of weeks behind in finishing my July page. I finally finished it today! This month’s page has great meaning to me. It symbolizes the birth of my authentic self. She is peeking out from her protective cocoon/bud. The spirals surrounding her birth symbolize the cyclical nature of life and how we come back to a certain place or life lesson along our journey. Instead of being at the same exact place, however, we have moved up a turn in the spiral and, hopefully, have grown in our experience. The spirals are all shades, tints and tones of purple. Purple is for the wisdom and magic I seek in my life everyday.

    Karen, your journal page is gorgeous. I love spirals, and find myself incorporating them into all my work, whether it’s polymer clay, wirework, beading, or doodling ! Thanks also for sharing the story behind the spirals..
