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!

Noticing how calm I feel after writing. I don’t understand why I resist in doing it. Today I wrote about causes and consequences. Each little thing we do in this world has a consequence.  It isn’t easy to accept it, but learning to accept and learn to let go is a must if we want to live in harmony with ourselves.

Have a lovely Sunday!

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.

Monday musings

Finally, I’m getting my journaling mojo back. Few scribbles here and there, but I’m writing much more now than I’d done in the last few months.

I’ve been journaling, almost every day, since 2013. This year I had my first long break of it, I can say a forced break. I’m so glad I hadn’t lost my journaling practice forever. It is part of my morning routine, and my day is always better when I put down a few or lots of words on the paper.

This is my tiny red Moleskine, 5 x 7 inches. I’m using it mainly for collage, and sometimes acrylic painting. The pages are thick enough so the painting doesn’t leak to the back page.

Today I added few magazine clips, words and the moon cycle to these pages. I’m pretty happy with the result.  The words and the moon cycle are from my Right Brain Planner kit.

Have a great week!

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?
