Beauty is in the eye...

This is a recent art journal page - I had to use this amazing old photo I ran across...

I'm not going to blur out the journaling, because I know everyone feels this way now and says " All the ways that I feel NOT ENOUGH ~ not pretty enough, not thin enough, not young enough, not fit enough ~ I know it's COMPLETE BOLLOCKS but it still creeps up on me & whispers in my ear sometimes: just no."   Even as a fairly confident woman, I deal with those feelings once in a while.

There's a lot of pink shimmer on the page that doesn't scan well, and the "Beauty" title is done in sparkly black pen.  One of these days I'll figure out how to scan sparkle/reflections.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. what a brave and honest page this is~!

    i am amazed sometimes at how much self talk it takes to dislodge my own "NOT ENOUGH" feelings.
    it's a shame what we've been brainwashed to believe about our selves.
