noticing # 48

Noticing how much I like to rip pages of magazines, it’s calming! I made these 4 pages during the weekend using the prompts from @createwithmethursdays, an Instagram challenge on Thursdays. I had a busy Thursday and didn’t have time to join the challenge, so I saved the prompts (Green, Love, Hope, and Faith) for the weekend.

Have a great week! Hoping for some sunshine here!

a peek inside my tiny red Moleskine. the prompt for this spread is i lovewithout any doubt i love freedom: freedom to go and come back, freedom to wear what i fancy, freedom of speech and creativity. sadly many women don’t have a tiny bit of this freedom.

and you? what do you love?

art pages

i joined an art party last evening on IG. it was lots of fun to get together with people around the world and create few pages. if you wish, you can check it using #septglueparty18. I used my tiny red moleskine for my pages.  i really enjoy tiny art!

first prompt: which color describes you? – the first color to come to my mind is yellow. my older son was close by and i asked him the question, he said yellow!!! wow, this made me happy 🙂

fourth prompt: a quote from jack kerouac “life must be rich and full of loving, it’s no good otherwise, no good at all, for anyone.” of course, if you know me, you know that self-love is on the top of my priority list.

June moments

Can you believe today is the last day of June and the half-year is gone by?

Being at home has proportioned me with tiny pleasures that before were reserved only for the weekends.

ENJOYING – I’m spending lots of time in my backyard. I enjoy looking at the flowers and the insects that visit them, like butterflies and dragonflies. Lots of birds visiting my yard as well. We have a birdbath and I love watching them playing in the water.

 

 

CREATING – My creativity is low right now, I’m not sure what is going on, but I don’t have any enthusiasm to be in my art room. I managed to make a notebook and few art cards this month.

 

BAKING – I’m testing new recipes for both baking and cooking. Up to know they have been a success, like this apple cake.

READING – I’m reading a lot, all kinds of books. The library in my city has a great collection of books: old and new. I like to read 2 books at the same time, one fiction and another one non-fiction or poetry.

 

 

FOCUSING – On tiny things. Observing details that generally we are too busy to see and be grateful that I have the opportunity to be a witness of the magical nature around me.

 

 

Wishing you a lovely July!

My Art Journaling Practice

Hello,

It is a lovely evening here in my part of the world. I can see the trees, they have a luscious green, and listen to the birds while I write this post. It has rained for the major part of the day, the plants needed it, we had few days of heat and dryness this weak. I like to listen to the sound of the rain, it’s calming, and the smell of the earth after the rain is refreshing.

I shared with you my journaling practice last week, you can find it here. This week I want to share with you few pages of my art journaling practice. Sometimes it is easy to express ourselves through images and only a few words, or no words at all.

Art Fun

I joined an art party on Instagram during the weekend,  #jangluebookparty18.

This month the party was hosted by @the.butterfly.artist and @the_intrepid_goddess.

They provided 4 prompts and we made art pages with them, basically collage, since the party lasts 2 hours.  It’s such fun, we have one party in the first Saturday of every month.  I hosted one last year, and I’ll host another one in April. We have people from all over the world and prizes too. If you are interested in join them please let me know and I’ll send a message with the details close by. Here are my pages.
