#MiniMoleyMonday – Week #11

#MiniMoleyMonday is a feature here on my blog wherein I plan to share the images and videos I create for #MiniMoleyDaily. Here is an info page and archive of images for #MiniMoleyDaily, in case you want to get all caught up. This page includes the full YouTube playlist of #MiniMoleyDaily spreads! Yay!

Last Week In #MiniMoleyDaily

This was an insane week, and I was very pressed for time, so I did what I always do when I’m behind on things! I printed and glued! The MiniMoley is lovely for life documentation. Think “Project Life” but without all the stuff to buy. I just print out images, slap them in, add sentiments, and voila!

I did have some trouble with my prints, however, so I started using Krylon Workable Fixative to seal the prints before working with them. There is something about the UHU glue stick that seems to react badly with my printer inks, but the light spray of Krylon worked wonders.

The first two spreads this week were painty, and the second in the week’s collection is easily my favourite.

Onward to this week’s edition of #MiniMoleyMonday!

By the way!

I built myself a beautiful tarot journal, and created a tutorial for Pull.Pen.Paint in which I walk you through the process of finding your soul card and painting yourself as said soul card. It was a pleasure to create this class, and you can find more info here. Please note that this lesson goes live this week, but that’s the least of it! This class is so packed full of information on the art of using Tarot as a mirror, as a jumping off point for painting, as a soul friend…

I hope you’ll join me.

Last Week In #MiniMoleyDaily

I’m behind one day in my #MiniMoleyDaily this week, but that’s easy enough to catch up on. I will be doing that today by combining Sunday & Monday in one spread.

Last week’s adventures in mini-journaling were awesome. I brought a lot of the techniques I use in a typical journal spread into the mini without any difficulty. I was especially moved by the spread I created for Friday, and the up-swelling of self-empathy it created in me. The song, “Sweet Lorraine” by Patty Griffin, felt perfect for it. I’ve included this week’s entire playlist in this post, but I also singled that video out in case you were pressed for time.

In case you missed it!

This lovely mini workshop consists of two parts – a full length mixed media art tutorial & a style development interview. This class will walk you through the creation of a focal image surrounded by Klimt style doodles. There is a healing component wherein we will explore the importance of showing our true colours so that our tribe can find us.

There are six parts to this class, but it is easy enough to completely over the course of one weekend.

Originally filmed for Ever After 2016, it has been moved into my private teaching platform for your enjoyment! Unlimited access and downloadable content is included, and if you need feedback, all you need do is email me. $29

Last Week In #MiniMoleyDaily

Last week was all about feeling spring happening in my bones. My palette reflected that. My symbols reflected that. I did a spread for each day of the week until the weekend, when an impromptu trip away required that I do a two-for-one for Saturday & Sunday.

On A Personal Note

I had a rotten cold last week, so I skipped Friday Five. All I really had to say was “Vicks, Neo-Citran, Kleenex, Lip balm, soup, etc…” so I figured I’d spare you the whining. :) It will return this coming Friday, with my gratitude for your patience.

I have a lesson in Life Book 2017 that just went live! It is an exploration of artistic lineage, represented by a patchwork tree. I also have a playsheet on the subject of befriending your inner critic (whose job it is to protect us, even though it never really feels that way!). It isn’t too late to sign up, and I’d love to see you there!

Last Week In #MiniMoleyDaily

I created almost daily this week in MMD, which was awesome, because there was no need to play catch up. I am especially inspired by two things right now: music, and watercolours. Music always plays a role in the videos I create for MMD, but this week I create a two page spread for Friday & Saturday using my new love, watercolours!

Just a quick FYI: This isn’t a challenge. There are no prompts, though some folks are finding and using some that work for them. My intention is to be as free as possible in this practice, so being constrained by prompts or themes isn’t necessarily going to work for me, but I invite you to find what works for you. If you want to hang out with an amazing group of likeminded journal artists, please join us in the Facebook Group.

Last Week In #MiniMoleyDaily

Last in MiniMoleyDaily was an exercise in playing catch up. My life is always pretty busy, but I’ve added a romance to the pot, and while it is delicious and creates all sorts of lovely journal fodder, it is also requiring of me that I make time and space. I’ll rally, I promise, but for now, I’m struggling a bit to maintain all the practices I want to practice.

The MiniMoley has given me all sorts of space for the real stuff that’s happening in my life. It’s a place to play that doesn’t ask anything of me except that I show up. Technique, supplies, appropriateness for public viewing – none of that matters. I just show up, smash myself into the pages, and get on with my day.

The Mini’s have been getting created in spurts of creation, usually midweek and on the weekend, but I am working on finding a sweet spot – a golden hour each day, and I’m starting to think that might happen just before bed. It feels like a good time to think about the day, what happened, what I felt & experienced, and then create spreads that reflect that. I’ll let you know how my practice evolves over time.
