Art journal peek: Take your pills

Anti depressants

Another page from my loose pages series. This one has a sadness to it, not sure if you can tell? Antidepressive pills along with depressing quotes…. The quotes by Pascal and Donne are in Swedish, and taken from some paper I got at university when I took Philosophy for one semester. I love this page because to me it expresses a lot of big feeelings. Sometimes I forgot how therapeutic journaling and collage can be. It is such a release to see what you feel (put down on paper like this) that this page makes me smile!

    Spännande! det börjar klia i mina fingrar, jag tycker också det är befriande att göra collage. Och fint & träffande citat du hittat!

    Hi Hanna,
    Very striking! And as you said depressing. I like your page, it makes me think thoughts that lasts for awhile. It’s some of the same feeling I get when I’m reading one of Piet Hein’s tiny poems called: Huskevers. That poem is quite different but still a bit similar.

      Laila, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about this journal page, it means a lot to me! Poems can be strong and hold a lot of meaning too, I agree. Making us stop and think for a while…

    It is a powerful page Hanna. When someone I knew died suddenly I spent a day art journalling, it was very absorbing and cathartic. I celebrated her life and felt I really found a way to deal with things that are hard to express when words are not enough.

      Sandie, yes art journaling can be very healing! No matter if you throw out “the bad” on a page or celebrate live and the good parts it’s healthy to “get it out”, examine it and use it. :-)
