being clear of clutter...by aisling d'art ©2003 - 2006
"being clear of clutter..."
This is one of my favorite pages in the entire journal. I love this quote, and I love the visual effect and design of this painting. It's black gesso on the page, with white and copper stamp pad ink, using three different alphabets.
The quote is from Karen Kingston's book, Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui:
"Being clear of clutter is one of the greatest aids I know to discovering and manifesting the life you want."
