Nurturing Thursday #4

“Nothing makes the light, the wonder, the treasure stand out so well as darkness.”

If you followed my previous blog you know that my favourite book is Women who run with the wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  I keep it always close to me on my bedside table, or on my desk in my studio. When I need a word of comfort or inspiration I open this book to a random page and for sure I find what I’m looking for.

Hope you have a wonderful and inspired Thursday.

Sharing with Nurturing Thursday.

Share Your World::Oct 16, 2017

I’m joining Cee’s SYW challenge. Here are the questions:

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? 

Last year I went to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympics. I love the city and everything about it: the people, the weather, the food, the beaches, the mountains, the colours. It’s a place completely different from Canada, my country and I love it,  but I’d try Rio, not for long, maybe a year or so. I know there are lots of problems in there, like health care, violence, corruption…, but it would be fun to know more about the culture and the people in an exotic country. Here are few pics from my trip.

What color would you like your bedroom to be?

It would be light blue and it will have a large window, with white lace curtains,  overlooking the Atlantic ocean. I’ll keep the window open, so the ocean breeze will lightly move the curtains. I love the smell of the sea, salt and sand.

I made this journal page few weeks ago and looking back at my tiny art journal I saw this quote last week. A reminder that I need to take more risks, not be so much in the safe side.

Hope you enjoyed my ‘world’, please visit Cee’s blog for more adventures.

 

Journaling pages

 

I’m still working my way through art journaling. I don’t need much to express my feelings on journal pages; only few magazines pages, a glue, pen and markers or crayons.

I love to work on small notebooks, tiny ones like this pocket moleskine. Few minutes in my studio and a new page is born. I’ve been journaling for many years but I only discovered the pleasures of art journal few years ago. There are so many techniques and media to choose from, but I like it simple.

And you? How do you express your feelings through art?

Soul Work #2

I dove deep into my soul work this past week. The change of the season, the full moon, starting to blogging again…, so many things triggered my mood for journaling. I wrote lots of morning pages and some art pages as well, here are few of them. Hope they inspire you!
