ART JOURNAL YOUR ARCHETYPES by Gabrielle Javier-Cerulli—Book Giveaway October 11, 2016Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
I haven’t posted here for a good few months, but this, this, calls for a post…
ART JOURNAL YOUR ARCHETYPES – Mixed Media Techniques for Finding Yourself is a new book by Gabrielle Javier-Cerulli. I just found two copies of the beautiful book in my mail box and I am ready to give one away to one of you visiting here and leaving me your words in the comment box.
“In this unique book, you will learn processes for discovering your core archetypes and using that knowledge to create highly personal visual expressions, all the while embracing the personal revelations and creative breakthroughs that result”. -Gabrielle
About two years ago along with a few others I was honored to be asked to contribute to her book. After a long conversation with Gabrielle exploring my archetypes, I was to create a couple of journal spreads deriving from that newly received information about myself. That new wisdom of an unknown world to me before opened my expression to new directions and the making and preparing of these pages became most meaningful and joyous to me. I made them about two years ago and I am happy to get them both into light. Here they are…
In this book I write this about the archetypes that make me and the connection between journaling and these newly discovered archetypes:
“I make art in books. I notice that I consider my pages to be complete when at least one of my archetypes emerges from total anonymity to full visibility. Very often I find traces of all of them in one page. It makes complete sense to me now. The Visionary, Storyteller, Liberator, Creative, Warrior, Rebel, Pioneer, and Nature Woman in me all make appearances on my behalf when needed. In return I give them “voice” through my visual expression, and the connections that I allow myself to have with the world and all that binds us all.”
Thank you so much Gabrielle for introducing me to this fascinating new world and including me in it!
The book is available here!!
