Thankful for Art :)

As I mentioned before I am going to start participating in challenges
to help me get my art groove back lol

I made this #artjounal cover
using the theme: Put a Stencil On It

I used a few different basic shape stencils
to my prepped art journal cover
let it dry and stamp the words
Thankful for Art
which I am... :)
It gives me my sanity back lol

Thank you for visiting
Make art and stay sane lol

#WOYWW 399 Prepping #artjournal pages

Has been such a long time since I showed up here in WOYWW ...

I've been trying to make time to do a little art here and there 5 minutes at the time during the week
So far I managed to prep some art journal pages with gesso, let's see what I come up with
I think I am going to participate on some challenges and take some art classes online, maybe I'll start with some free ones lol
Can you recommend any that you know of?

Take care and make art to keep your sanity :)

Spread Your Wings Art Journal Page

I read in an article and I wish I remember which one
that yoga, art and meditation are great stress relievers.
So this is what I am trying to incorporate in my daily life.

Sometimes I don't know where to start
since my brain is all over the place,
the monkey mind like some people calls it;
so I decided to start by following a challenge:
Simon Says which comes out every Monday,
their theme for this week is 
Spread your Wings

I took a little bit of inspiration from the sample pictures they have :)

I have to admit, I felt a little rush making this page
since I only had half hour to do it
which defeats the purpose of making art to relieve stress lol
but I still feel good that I made some art :)

I know... I have to learn to slow down :)
Now I am curious... how do you do that?

Take care,
