The inner child May 6, 2014

Who says adults can’t play? When i create in my art journal, I unleash the inner child in me. A 15 min a
day put aside for creativity is so cathartic and lasts a whole day. Go ahead and try it. Unleash that inner child in you through art!

Art Journaling at Starbucks May 3, 2014

Coffee shop art journaling is doable and therapeutic. All you need is your journal, some gelatos, sharpie pen, a little space and your cup of latte. I got inspired with this page from yesterday’s visit to the Dali Museum with my daughter. We both had a fabulous time admiring art. Some were a bit out there for my taste but the whole experience was enjoyable. I tried doing my most Picasso like art mixed with zentangles. The end piece was good enough for me. I’m sure I would add more to it later. Remember, in art journaling there aren’t any rules. Be creative and enjoy the process. Here’s how my page turned out. I hope you like it. Thanks for dropping by!

I love Coldplay and l listen to their songs a lot may it be in the car or working out. Here’s a journal page I made with “Fix You” lyrics around my hands. I have used gelatos on the background. My first time playing with them and found it so much fun! The heart flowers were my drawings on a scrapbook paper and glued onto the page. The hand imprints were impressions using acrylic paint. I enjoyed doing this page. Hope you like it. Thanks for dropping by!

I had fun with this one. I first painted the background blue. Made clouds using my new gelli plate. Cut up a pix of a lady from a mag and doodled dots on her dress. Used some stencils and made messy black marks on the page. Messy art is good :-). Why don’t you make a lovely day page? Thanks again for dropping by!

Here’s another fun doodle! I did not bring any of my acrylic paints to Miami. I only brought with me a notebook and sharpie and doodled away. This type of doodling has a name. its called Zentangles – didnt even know such word exists. There are lots of patterns on Pinterest. Fun stuff. Hope you’ll find it enjoyable. I find it relaxing! 🙂
