Art Journaling 102: Spotlight on Judy Wise’s Blog

We Love

Create an art journal page inspired by the title “My Journey”. Relate it to the theme of the month (i.e. My Vision for 2012 – January: Health). Link Up Here.

This is part of my journey with Fibromyalgia, a degenerative muscle syndrome. You go from “start” aka “normal” or life free of pain to “Fibromyalgia Island” where you feel alone with the diagnosis. There is the “Land of Tears and Aches”, where you hurt from head to toe and just cry. Thank goodness those days for me were in the mid-90′s, long behind me.  Then we move onto the FMS Association, “land of respite” – where I found a welcome place to be, support, and a lot of information at meetings that I went to. Moving on, we travel to “Utopia of Dreams”: getting my lifelong insomnia under control with medication was a huge factor in helping my FMS symptoms. Next, we visit “Bones Beach”: a good chiropractor – essential to me. Then we travel through the feared “Injury Prone Zone” as my body is sensitive to slights, twists, and strains. This leads us to the place of “Biologic Restorative”: I found a really great physical therapist this year. (We’ve worked on everything from my shoulders and neck  all the way to my feet and everything in between). A journey to “Endocrinology Shores” was unexpected with a diagnosis of hypothyroidism, which with research I’ve discovered is also linked to fibromyalgia or vice-versa, so I’ve consulted an endocrinologist. And we end at “Rheumatology Jungle” – as it was recommended that I see a rheumatologist for FMS so I have an appointment next month.

Instructions: For the page, I downloaded the globe from Free U.S. and World Free Royalty Free Maps You Can Download and Use For Your Projects. I erased the white background in Elements, and underlayed the patterned and solid papers. Then I added my own text and embellishments.

 Poem by Emily Dickinson:
Yesterday is History,
‘Tis so far away
Yesterday is Poetry
‘Tis Philosophy
Yesterday is mystery
Where it is Today
While we shrewdly speculate
Flutter both away

I found this poem by Emily Dickinson that deals with the subject of Yesterday and Today. I believe the last two lines “While we shrewdly speculate/Flutter both away” is the lesson to be learnt that life is meant to be lived in the moment, also known as “Carpe Diem!”  I translated this into my page with the colors and word art that I selected. This is an all digi page that I wanted to make it look as if it were hybrid.
