OMG! Just realized that my last random page post was in May!

I joined a glue book party last night, here are my pages and the prompts. I haven’t done much art journaling recently, so this party came in hand to boost my creativity. Hope you are having a lovely Sunday and enjoy my pages.

Good morning! A new week ahead, lots of possibilities waiting for us. Hope you had a great weekend. I can say my weekend was an artsy one!

On Friday afternoon, after grocery shopping, I stopped by a craft store. It was a grey day and I needed something to brighten it.

I got these gorgeous washi tapes, I can’t resist them! I’ve many but I always need more!

Saturday evening I joined an Instagram Art Party – MarGlueBookParty, where we have prompts and make art pages using collage.

Prompt 1: Springtime

Can’t wait to smell the flowers in my garden

Prompt 2: Yellow butterfly

butterflies mean transformation and it can be reached by practicing yoga

Prompt 3: Let’s dance!

listening is what matters, no other sense is necessary when dancing

I love to see how I used yellow in all my pages. Yellow means happiness, and it was the colour stealing my attention that evening. A good sign for sure!

Sunday morning I woke up thinking about lightness, the feeling of it!

I thought the feeling of lightness should be as the scent of oranges on a hot summer day. I got out my sweet orange essential oil and smelled it! Yes, it’s lightness and freshness all together.

Take a flying leap at the sun.

Don’t let your thoughts weigh you down

Where focus goes, energy flows.

Being by myself, in solitude, a few minutes in the morning is necessary for setting up my mood for the day.

Yesterday, before getting up, I heard another snow storm was coming. Instead of stressing out and hurrying up to arrive at the work before the storm hits the city, I slowed down and spent some time journaling and doing some art.

I needed this time to focus on myself before opening the door to the chaos outdoors.

I followed my mantra: Stop; Breathe; Listen

In the end, I had a pleasant day and enjoyed the walk in the snow feeling the wind and the flakes touching my face.

Instead of complaining, I was grateful for that moment.

Have you stopped and thought what are you grateful for in this moment?

Have a great Thursday!

I’ve been art journaling since 2013, and now I think I’ve finally figured out my style for art journal pages. Here are a few things that I love to have on my pages:

  • Color – I prefer to use acrylic than water-color medium
  • Images – Mostly from magazines, but children books are a great asset as well
  • Words – A must!
  • Messy – Yes to freedom!

It’s funny, I always try to change things but always go back to what makes comfortable and my creativity can fly free.

And you? How is your creativity doing?
