Wanderlust 2021, the mixed media art journal course, has come to an end. I have really enjoyed it and have learnt a lot. It has been a challenge, but one that I have thrown myself into and done the best I could. I now have a lovely full journal to look back on. I have signed up to Wanderlust 2022, so my journey will continue.

Wanderlust 2021 - weeks forty-five to fifty - Fables and Round up
The final theme was fables, where animals illustrate a moral or a story. This page illustrates my own artistic journey, anticlockwise, from the top left: a little kitten failing my A levels, retaking them and passing at evening classes, then twenty years later, going to do a Foundation in Art and Design course (with a photos of my felt behind the owl) and finally the tiger, more confident and ready for challenges.
The next fable theme was about creating a character (the example was a wolf in sheep's clothing)and using a phrase. I chose the golden goose which is about being thankful for what you have. While creating this page, I thought about the last line in the film 'Now, Voyager' so used that as my quote. "...Don't let's ask for the moon, we have the stars".
On to Wanderlust 2022!
