Our prompt last week on Joggles Art Journal Adventures was to use a word and also feature it's definition. As you can see I went with CALM in honour of my beloved Calm App, that provides daily 10 minute meditations as well as meditation specially geared towards a certain issue, such as anxiety, sleep, breathe and of course calm. It has beautiful music too.
To me an owl is the perfect embodiment of calmness. So he (or she) became the mainstay of my pages done in a 9 x 9" Bee Paper Mixed Media journal. I also wanted the spread to reflect calmness so stayed with a subtle, subdued colour scheme and only used one stencil to do the background. It's the large stencil from the March 2018 Stencilgirl Club. The only other addition was some paint splattering in white.
 I also found some very fitting postage stamps (all French) to tone in with the pages and showing calmness enhancing imagery.

I love the soft tones in your background. There is so much wonderful texture and fine detail that it reminds me that calm does not mean boring at all. Wonderful choice of images as well as the inclusion of the stamps. I find my eye travels slowly and smoothly around your page which reflects how well you have captured the essence of your word. Lovely spread, Frieda!
