RED


A couple weeks back, one of the Artistic Alchemy workshop assignments were to find out own colors. Well today I realized that RED is really my color for anxiety, stress, sadness, whatever.

Today the color red spoke to me, after the day I have had. Here's an emotional page.

Its always hard to share these.......I will probably go take a nap when this is done. Its hard to be honest sometimes, and believe me, I wish every day was happy but today has not been a good one, at least this afternoon. Then again, I realize realistically, we all have hard days, thats the brutal truth. Knowing that makes it easier to share these sorts of pages. Oh well, it did help to work through it and I am thankful to be able to pour my feelings out onto my journal pages.

I feel very emotional myself looking at this piece. It has a "gripping" feel to it. Thank you for sharing it...even though it comes from a difficult place. Thinking of you....

Sorry you had a difficult day, Kristy...but it is wonderful to have an artistic outlet for such days. This is an excellent piece...I won't try to read into it. Hope this coming week is better.

This is a really neat way to express yourself. I love it. I still am trying to figure out how you make these. By the way.. I love your new haircut. I wish that I could pull that off.

Kristy, this is incredibly beautiful!! I have to agree that it is very tough to open up oneself and to share such intimate details. I admire you for doing so and urge you to continue to share what you feel.
