I am a great believer in sharing my creative process!  That is how Drawn Together was created in the first place- through journals and blogposts.

As I build the journal series, I will be sharing my notes and process here and welcome your feedback and your photos!

Your contribution is invaluable and may find its way to my book! Contact me at Email.

Part 5: REFLECTION: ANTICIPATION, PROCESS and AFTERMATH

So a major life change has occurred.  Now what?  As we reflect on this aftermath, we must acknowledge how we anticipated it.

I’d like you to write about the words:

ANTICIPATION, PROCESS and AFTERMATH.

What do these words mean to you?

Using dry pastel- color each line.

Rub it down.

Spray it with hairspray.

Now cut strips.

Weave them together.

We anticipate events.  As we process them, whether we do it well or badly, elegantly or clumsily, the experiences weave a tapestry that colors our personality.  It’s a strong, beautiful un-anticipated, splendidly imperfect design.

Write about how anticipation can cause fear.  Is it self-sabotage or is it part of the process?

Draw how it feels.

 Write about what we leave behind after anticipation and process.  Then draw on that poetry.
