Karma Trauma Art Journal Page

I have been thinking about karma lately. Partly because of my sister, partly because of aspects of my own personality. Apparently there are two kinds of karma, one that you can overcome and one that you just have to live with.

But my interest isn't in dissecting karmic philosophy, it is really just about the question: what can we change, and what do we just have to live with?

I like the way these pages look really cheerful with the sunny colours and the ducky and star stencils, but then the subject is quite heavy.

Love your pages!

Annnnd ... while we "can't" always change the things we perceive outside of our sphere of influence, we can always (a word I rarely use) change our attitudes, behaviors, choices and actions to/around them.

Peace. Hugs too. :)

The pages are nice. We can not change things but the way we perceive them can make a difference.

The choice of fire red/oranges colors indicate the heavy message in your words. Karma is an interesting way of thinking and your sacred marks are your voice and vehicle for true healing. Be at peace little sister...the white light is surrounding your heart. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

love the pages, and I was just thinking about this same thing today, so weird! Thanks for the post, I'm going to work on getting better karma (cause I do believe we can change, we can do better, so we can make better karma:)
have a great week!

I to like the bait and switch type of drawing one into a nest... and then showing the claws (sort of). Great work! -Jayne

everything changes, so karma's not constant or definite either.

Zom, I have to apologize, because it feels like forever since I've visited your lovely blog. Nothing personal--I barely have time to keep up with my own blog. But in the small time that I have been absent I can see such a change and a shift that has occurred in your art journal. More brighter--Creative Juicy if you may. Everything seems washed and soaking in color. I love it! And I love you, and promise to be around more....coming here is not only fun to visit with you my friend, but I always leave more inspired--more jazzed about art journaling then ever!! Thank you!

Hope all is well down under!

Peace & Love.
