Creative Art Journal Week #2



The prompt for this week is "what is powerful to you".
For me, the most powerful thing is witnessing the magical moment when a woman transforms into a mother just after giving birth.
It happens in a split second and I believe that the universe shifts just a little.That is one reason why I find it so rewarding to be a doula.
I used a magazine image of a pregnant woman. I stamped the image and flower with the word 'Life" and I inked the card in red to represent the "Red Tent" where women used to gather in ancient times to share their wisdom and knowledge.
