Journaling on Chronic Pain Information




I picked up some new watercolors and went to work on two new journal pages. I was originally looking for a watercolor brush that had water in it and ended up instead buying some watercolor paints. I experimented with the backgrounds and then simply drew lines over top and flowers then journaled the pages in. I tried to use a technique I saw in the book "Journal Spilling" of using gel pens and watercolor resist but it didn't really show up. So I went over those lines with black (as my usual seems to be)...

My hubby found this wonderful video series on dealing with chronic pain, as most of you know I have fibromyalgia and have been experiencing chronic pain for awhile now. I can't remember having a pain free day in a long time (well actually Arizona was pretty painfree laying in the sun). Anyway, this time I'm not talking about Arizona (my favorite place of all time)...! This series is put on by the Calgary Health Region and explains in detail how our bodies process pain and send out pain signals from our brains... it is very informative and helpful if you have been experiencing Chronic Pain. I was rather pleased with the information I was able to extract from it and have already used many of their helpful hints to alleve some pain.

Maybe you too can find it helpful. Click on Calgary Health Region for further information.

I hope you all have a fabulous week. Happy Creating Everyone!
