Additionally, this is supposed to be just a personal thing I am doing for my own artistic development. It seems sort of invasive (and stifling to the creative process) to be taking process pictures and thinking about sharing it with the world.
I am quite satisfied with the way this journal turned out. I feel it has a lushness and depth that is visually gratifying. It inspires me to do more.....

Here is a link back to the beginning when I added the first two coats of paint: http://cynthia-stcharles.blogspot.com/2015/10/visual-journal-series-for-2015.html
This link shows how it looked after the first layer of block printing was added:
Here it is after I have added more printing, collage, sketching / doodling / outlining with markers and pens, watercolor painting, and some stream of consciousness journal writing. Then, I added Thermofax screen prints and colored those in with watercolor paints.

"There are receptors to these molecules in your immune system,
in your gut and in your heart. So when you say, 'I have a gut feeling' or 'my heart is sad'
or 'I am bursting with joy', you're not speaking metaphorically.
You're speaking literally."

We were so excited about our water taxi excursion across Kachemak Bay! We loaded our kayak, groceries, sleeping bags, etc. on the taxi. Destination - Otter Cove Lodge across the bay. We had a reservation at the rustic lodge.

Our second day was warm and sunny. There was a lot of melting going on and as we walked the glacial moraine, we heard a lot of big splashes back in the area of the ice caves we had previously explored.
