The challenge over at Wednesday Stampers this week is hands. I found a lovely indian inspired hand stamp that I have rarely used before. For todays journal page I have surrounded a quick sketch with various painted papers, pastels and stamped images and drawn around my hand. The little quote at the top reads "manifest plainness, embrace simplicity, reduce selfishness, have few desires" by Lao Tzu (quite difficult in todays world I think). My yoga teacher often talks about clear awareness when the mind is clear of all the rubbishy thoughts that stress our lives..hence the title of this post.
My friend Louise is having an open evening for her exhibition Horses and Hounds tomorrow 5th May so if you live in the North West be sure to pop along...here is the poster for her exhibition.
