You know I am all into art journaling… and if you are too, I’m sure you have been to Tammy Garcia’s weblog Daisy Yellow before. Tammy invited me to write a guest post for her DPP (daily paper prompt) series and because I am not only into art journaling, but also into music ánd a fan of Tammy – I came up with a wonderful prompt! Well, at least I find it a wonderful prompt!
Hop on over to the Daily Paper Prompt Posts at Daisy Yellow to see my guest prompt and join the daily fun – Oh, and when you visit Daily Yellow, I advise you look a bit further than just the prompt I came up with and take a look at all the colourful gorgeousness and major inspiration Daily Yellow brings!
The Daily Paper Prompt I came up with is about getting inspired by the rhythm of music. I took photos during my creating process that make a little tutorial. Are you in for that? Come on in then…
Wednesday… WOYWW day… and I owe all woyww-participants an apology – I did not visit one of your blogs last week! I planned to blog-hop but the weather got very nice during the week, warm even and because of that temperatures raise real high in the office space. There are more ‘machines’ in that room and it gets really hot as they all work like little heaters! So I turned off my computer as soon as the necessarily work was done. I know a lot of you woyww-hoppers are from the UK – and you must have had the same weather on your isle – so I hope you understand and forgive me. I try to do better this week – I promise!
It’s still freezing in the Netherlands and yes, our drainpipe is still frozen.
I haven’t done the laundry all week (don’t worry, I have plenty of clothes
to wear – not being able to choose the faves from my closet forced me to
make long forgotten picks from my wardrobe. I could even be seen in tights
with a flutter skirt and a woolen cardigan!)
Luckily, the weather forecast predicts warmer temperatures. YEAY!
I know, most of the Dutchies are disappointed that the ‘Elfstedentocht’
(see this post) won’t be held, but I’m not one of them. If it were up to me
it would be raining hot water as soon as possible, preferably right now!
Today is but the same as yesterday… sun, blue sky and freezing.
I wrote this haiku…
Autumn has really set in.
This morning, mist hung over the houses and the sounds coming from
the city sounded muted… In Zeeland, there also is the distance sound
of the fog-horn on mornings like this – that was the only thing missing here.
I like the early morning mist that holds a promise of a beautiful day.
I mean that kind of mist where you can almost feel the sun shine behind.
Mist that dissolves when the sun climbs the sky… and yes, bright light
shines through my window right now.
So let’s make this a beautiful day, starting with a beautiful photo and haiku
Hello Friday, hello sweet ones!
How was your week?
I have been in a creative flow the last couple of days, and man it feels good!
At some point, I was working on 5 pieces at once… not that I can show you all
five pages – some aren’t finished yet – but I do have some things to show.
It’s the second day of my favourite month: September.
I love the smell of Autumn in the air.
I love the sun standing low at the horizon, making long shadows.
I love the quietness of this month.
September always makes me a bit melancholic too.
Somewhat like in the song ‘September morning’ by Neil Diamond.
I’m far from being a fan, but I keep that one CD especially for that song,
and I only play it in September. Once.
(After all, I can’t have melancholy developing into a depression.)
Goodafternoon … WEDNESDAY!
I know, I know.. you probably were wondering where the Tuesday post went…
Sorry, no time yesterday. I had a lot on my mind. Nice things though (see post
on top of my blog and my website)
But here I am, to show you the latest art journal pages
(yep, I also was creative in between… I had sort of an energy rush, YAY!)
