Sustainable Souls-September & October

I’m a little behind once again on my posts for our year long Sustainable Souls project, but I wanted to share with you my journal spreads for September and October.

September’s theme was all about Fossil Fuels, how they are used and how they can be disruptive to the environment. Fossil energy sources, including oil, coal and natural gas, are non-renewable resources that formed when prehistoric plants and animals died and were gradually buried by layers of rock.

When I thought about fossil fuels, I immediately thought about those working in coal mines. Since my art tends toward a more vintage flair, I wanted to incorporate that into the theme. Here is my take on the month’s theme:

October’s theme was Deforestation and environmental degradation. Deforestation affects all of us. The forests produce vital oxygen and provide homes for people and wildlife. Many of the world’s most threatened and endangered animals live in forests, and 1.6 billion people rely on benefits forests offer, including food, fresh water, clothing, traditional medicine and shelter. My journal spread for this theme incorporates children, who will be affected by our actions today.
