I spent the weekend creating... and going on a shopping spree for art supplies! Needless to say, I am one happy girl.
My mind has been on creative overdrive the past month. I have played with several new mediums as well as dabbled with Zentangle and keeping a sketch book.
I am happier than I have been in a long time. A couple weeks ago, I purchased an Art Journal, Ranger Ink - Dylusions Creative Journal. This has been one of the most inspiring and soul nurturing projects. There are no rules. Every art journal is unique to it's creator... and I LOVE it.
Today I want to share the first page I ever did in my journal...
Here are some highlights of the first page: "Pieces"
The quote that inspired this page is:
"You don't know this new me. I put back my pieces differently."
This is a perfect quote for me. I have been broken and I am putting myself back together. Differently, but me. A beautiful, crazy, mess!
A blank page. Just waiting to have the inspiration and ideas come to life on it.
Covered in Gesso & Liquitex Ink.
The completed page was perfect. There are personal details on it, so I am not going to share the whole completed page. ...but it is a journal, free for me to express me, my feelings, and my life.
If you get into Art Journaling, remember: THERE ARE NO RULES! Play, enjoy, experiment. This is your creative expression and it is perfectly unique to you.
Until next time... Happy Creating!
