Angels and the Eyes of Wisdom

Remember the art journal spread I shared last week?  It started like this:

On the left hand side of the spread, I started outlining some of the flowers from the April Stencil Club 9 x 12, and ... wouldn't you know it, an angel grew out of them.

 I began filling in the flowers with a mixture of paint and glazing medium...

And then worked on my angel...

I continued to work on her, adding some doodling to her halo.  The page sat like this for several days.  And then, one of my yoga teachers said something so beautiful in class:  "Through the eyes of wisdom, difficulties can become good fortune."  I added those words to the page, to remember.

Even though I designed the April Stencil Club Stencils with a "Feelin' Groovy" theme, I think they work nicely in more muted colors as well.  Do you agree?
