Goodmorning lovelies! I took the day off to join woyww… well, no – that’s too much honour but it is a fact that I took the day off today to spend time in my atelier. I hardly had any free days all summer, I worked while all my co-workers were on holiday, and I just needed some extra ‘me-time’ today… so yay, I’m in my pyjama’s typing this blogpost and after that I will dive into my paints and go loose/get lost in art!
I started yesterday evening already ’cause one of the art journal Facebook groups I am a member off had an ‘event’ which I joined. The result of yesterday’s evening is what you see on my desk this morning.
I don’t know how you call this in English but I’m sure some of you know these kind of ‘events’… the administrator of the group picks a ‘creative assignment card’ every 10 minutes and you work with the challenges.
There were 8 steps last night:
1. Use three shades of one colour on the background
2. Use strips of bookpaper
3. Paint with a brayer or palette knive
4. Glue snippets of coloured paper
5. Draw or write with your non-dominant hand
6. Make fingerprints using paint
7. Work with Woody’s or Neo-colors II
Here’s a Chronicles spread (week 35) I created last weekend
And now I’m going to pour me some more coffee, put on my old shirt and get creative… I hope you have a good day too. Do something you like, even if it’s only for a minute or so… look at the clouds, put some paint on a page and kiss your loved ones. See ya soon!
