Art Journaling

I know! I've been gone for a couple of weeks maybe, yeah! well! life happens! lol
Today I'm going to share some of my Art Journal pages I made a some time ago before opening this blog :)







As you can see some of them have writing from ideas that I get looking in the net or from a book, etc. My Art Journal is mostly like an Art Idea/Inspiration book, I collect everything that comes to my mind and I like to use in the future either for my crafts or my scrapbooking.

You should give yourself permission to do the same, I used to wonder why, what for, what good is it going to do.  Well, a lot, I have a peace of mind that all the ideas I like are in a place where I can go back and look anytime I want to. It also gives me joy to look back at them and know what I can do.
It also makes me happy and that's all it counts sometimes :)

So go ahead, doodle, draw, glue, color, paint, create in any way you want and pleases you, it's your art and your time after all :)

Frustation No!... Inspiration!!!

I've been missing doing art,
I just haven't put it in my priority list
sadly :(
 
But since I miss it so much,
while I was cleaning my daughter's bathroom
I found a MESS!!!

 
 
It could be really easy to get frustrated,
but what for?
I am alone in the house all morning
so I let it go, and keep on cleaning,
but... wait a minute!
 
the colors are beautiful!
so I decided to take a picture :D
 
and after cleaning the bathrooms, instead of sitting and taking a break
I decided to do some art
 
there is no best way to make circles than a toilet paper tube :)


 
 
I started with the lighter colors first,
then flip it around and do the rest of the colors
inspired by my daughter's mess :)


 
 
I am usually not impatient at all, but this time I really wanted to finish this page
so I took the same paper tube and rolled it on my page
risky!!!
but I wanted to absorb some of the paint to dry it faster :)


 
After it dried completely I started doodling on the corner
without knowing what was I going to do
 
I doodled a little frame,
so small that nothing would fit but the word "ME"
then that inspired me to try to draw myself
with a few words of encouragement :)

Crochet Purse

 
It feels so good to finish a project, I remember since I decided to join pinterest I promised myself to fill it with things that I want to make or learn how to make, I saw this purse and I fell in love with it,  I had to make it, if you click on the picture of the purse in my pinterest you'll get the instructions, very easy to follow and here it is.

Lovely isn't it :D

Finding Color Inspirations at the Thrift Store

There is a thrift store in Lake Worth where I used to live, that is just plain awesome, they are big and they have everything you can imagine, so everytime I need something and I don't mind it being used, that's where I go.

I found this plate here, I didn't buy it, I have no use for it



but it caught my attention, the colors are so pretty that I just had to take a picture and make this color palette


 
 

I hope it becomes useful for somebody, I know for sure I'll be using it :)
 
If you use it, please come back and let me know leaving a link to how you used it :)
 
Have fun!

Embroidery kit

I just happened to find this pencil case at a super discounted price


So I decided to make something very useful out of it,


a take along sewing/embroidery kit. Everything fits perfect inside of it, is just the right size for the needle book I am working on, and the right length for the embroidery floss :)

I love to recycle stuff this way :)



Thanks for stopping by :)
