Ain't I a Woman

Ain't I a Woman
Pearl of Great Price


Body Love Collage

This is an exercise in exploring using words in art.  Many of you know that I am on a weight loss journey and as I shed much emotional and psychological weight I realize that, for me, a part of the foundation has to be love...self love, God love, love of God and yes...BODY LOVE.  I am thinking on lovely things:  one: that I can NOT live by bread alone; two: my admonishment to love my neighbor as MYSELF.  So the word that is proceeding out of my the positive affirmation expressed in this collage.  Wish me well as I continue the process of learning how to hug myself.

Materials: magazine cutouts (ironically and purposefully the bg is pics of food)
tissue paper
white out
water color pencil
heart confetti
mat board
sharpie marker

  5. I love, love, love the strength and emotion in your collage. As a father of two teenage girls and an educator, I can relate to the subject. I was also a teenager many years ago and struggled with similar issues, I am so glad you've accepted God in your life to help you through your weight loss journey. Just remember that His love is unconditional. May the Lord give you the strength, courage and wisdom to achieve all your goals. Peace!

  6. This is a fabulous collage and so inspirational for a weight loss journey. I've been down that path many, many times and I've learned to embrace all the stops along the way. Thanks for sharing with us at Word Art Wednesday!
