This is my entry for the second day of Advent and Rebecca's Twelve Days of Mary. I am very fond of iconography and I picked this image up originally from a Christmas card, but used several tools in my art journal arsenal to create this page. It's far from perfect but then I'm very hard on myself when it comes to art. I did get to play with Derwent Inktense pencils, lots of stencils and ink, Portfolio oil pastels, stamps, Sharpie Post Paint pens, and a bunch of other pens. There is a bias in art journaling toward those teachers who think there "should" be writing as well as art on every page, but my journals are my journals and sometimes I just don't want to put any words. I just want to use the page for going within and then feeling what happens.
