Our art journaling workshop instructor, Diane Segal, gave us a dreamcatcher prompt. My first attempt was a total disaster. So much so that I ripped off all of the collage elements and redid the page once I got back to my studio. I’m happy with the results now. It speaks to my desire to learn as much as I possibly can about the spiritual perspectives of other cultures.
The Hand of Hamsa dates back thousands of years and was a sign used by those who were superstitiuos and wanted protection against any negative energies. Over the years the symbol became an icon of protection.
My art journal now has this symbol of protection on the front cover thanks to my teacher Diane Kotlow Segal and her wonderful art journaling workshops.
