Soul Journal Blog Party!!

Thank you Kathryn for hosting such fun!!
Not far from where I live there melts a barn. It is slowly being reclaimed by the earth and, to me, it is more lovely now then it was in it's 'hay' day. So, for you, I have a simple journey of the barn. The power went out several times while I working on the second image. Let's just say, I was very spooked. I hope you enjoy...











I have so many more photos that I took, but alas, my time is tight and that is all I could work on. Below are some journal pages. I don't have many to share right now, as I am just starting my Soul Journal process. (on day 4) The photos of the girls above are from Lewis Carroll. Yes, the Alice and Wonderland author. He was a fantastic photographer as well. The dancing devils in the first barn image are also his work. They were drawn for the original Alice story.







The image below is one of my journal pages (center) imposed over a photo of one of the doors from the barn. The entire wall the door sits in is now resting at about a 45% angle to the ground. I will be posting the Lewis Carroll images to The Vintage Moth once time allows today.




Thank you for stopping by! I'll be over to visit this evening!

xoxo~

Wow the barn images are really spooky. It's funny that as you are trying to create this post that the power kept going out.

I love your journal pages too.

Wonderful work! great concept and photos..really like your journal page also. I never would have thought of a falling down barn as "melting" very creative!!

Quite spooky!
Old fashioned childrens photos are always a little scary.

Your poem is perfect for the day.

Your Journal pages are so interesting. I'll be back to look them over again.
