Gone … or In My Art Journal Today


“Gone. the saddest word in the language. in any language.”

I read this quote on a pinterest board and it resonated with me. Thank you for your kind and sweet words a couple weeks ago in comments and emails- that was very touching and wonderful! Thank you!



I had a more vibrant but pretty ugly background which I totally covered with black acrylic pant and then lifted up some of it again to reveal the background here and there- I stamped and stenciled on top repeating some of the colors in the background and also added journaling to a mono printed water color paper sheet in black and white attached it on top.


Art Journaling is a great way to deal with the good and the bad – it is amazing how much comfort messy hands can bring :)

Here are some of the supplies I used


Have a wonderful day!

    Nat, she may be gone in body, but her spirit and love live on in you, sweet friend. It really is amazing how much comfort creating brings to the soul. As always, your work is stunning and this journal spread is particularly poignant. Love and hugs! xx

    The colors go with the feelings.
    Yes, working in one’s art journal can help deal with feelings for sure.

    Beautiful page, Nat! Lately I am so drawn to black backgrounds…wonder what that means (something ominous I’m sure!)

    It is an infinite word! Perhaps you could journal ” Gone but not forgotten”
