a life's story collage #1


three years ago I had a serious breakdown and with the healing came this painting of the life I dream (it's in portuguese). never shared it with anyone but felt it fits on my life story so I decided to share it here. besides Journalism I also have a Reiki Master Degree and I used the symbols from PRISMology of Light Healing to empower my dreams (the drawings around the circle). it's no piece of art but came from my heart.

p.s. I will be doing another collage, more accordingly to the course challenge. can't wait to use Picnik. never did a collage online, usually I use magazines, scissors and glue! lol :)

Thanks so much for sharing this, Ana. I'm sorry you went through such a difficult time. Art can be very healing, can't it?

Your collage is beautiful, meaningful, and artistic. :)

thank you Vicki :) you always brighten up the day ;) never thought of it as artistic! I believe I'm going to learn so much about myself with you :) just to think of meaningful events in my life made me remember many things I love.

You are brave and this is seriously cool. Thank you for sharing. I am struggling with my collage. Plenty of themes, just no idea of how to put it together. I love your idea! Jenny (Raining Umbrellas)

Ana Eugenio said...

thanks Jenny :) I'm having the same "problem" with the collage for this week assignment, lol! never used Picnik or anything to edit photos, can't wait to try.

Ana, adorei. Para começar, adorei a honestidade desta colagem, é mesmo real como diz no canto e és tu. Acho tão bonito que pessoas que nunca conhecemos nos inspirem a abrirmo-nos como fizeste aqui. Obrigada.

Enquanto colagem em si, gosto bastante de como flui de umas unidades para as outras, tudo em simbiose e sem princípio ou fim. Excelente.

Um beijo. Que a vida te sorria agora.

To me, art is what comes right from the heart. And this collage does come from your heart. I am intrigued by this piece of art and by your personality. We seem to have a lot in common and that's one of the many things I like about Raining Umbrellas. It enables us to meet people from all over the world and get connected, in a very original way.
Dear Ana, I adore you for being so open and I wish you all the best. May your creativity and your art help you to find your way.

Wow! Very interesting and unique! I opted for a digital collage (will post it on my blog tomorrow when I have more time) but usually when I think of the word collage I think of scissors and magazine cuttings and glue! Love all the different typefaces used in the magazine cuttings. Also love the pink background - my favourite colour :)

I still haven't figure out how I'm going to do my life's collage for the course, Rachel. have so many ideas that I'm a bit lost. you leave me very curious about your work. used pink to symbolize love ;)
