The Documented Life Project 2015. We are staying with our theme of translucent papers. The art challenge is: tissue paper and the journalling prompt: The Disappearing Trick. Although these challenges are set every week and I do try and follow in their path this is still my art journal and I also want to keep the pages personal to me in my journalling. So I always investigate the prompt and see whether it can lead me to where I would want to go. In the case of this prompt it took me to a quotation by Dejan Stojanovic : "Will the day tell its secret before it disappears, becomes timeless night". This quotation then led to the creation of these pages, with the figure representing the day.

The universe seems to be speaking to me!
