Book of Days Update: Week 38

Ok, I am in a Book of Days mood this week. I finished Week 38 yesterday:

Used acrylics and hot glue gun stencil for background, star stencils and heart mask (which I cut from paper) in the foreground. I colored the stars with Sakura Glaze pen in yellow, added black lines with Edding black paint marker and Uni-Ball Eye black pen, and white details with Edding white paint marker and Rotring 0.5 pen with acrylic ink.

It was quick and easy. I think I will try to do one more today! Have a good Wednesday you all!

Book of Days Update: Week 40

Finally, I felt inspired to dive into Book of Days. I missed most of the course, but that’s ok. I will catch up eventually, I think 🙂

This is Week 40. Done with acrylics, sakura glaze pen in black, Faber Castell Pitt markers in red and yellow, Edding paint marker in black and white acrylic ink in my Rotring 0.5 pen. The little bubbles in the leaves is stencil by Tim Holtz and the big bubbles around is stencil by me 🙂

I really enjoyed this and I can see that there are more lessons of this type in BOD, so off I go to start another one! Have a nice Tuesday!

Think, she says to herself, but do not overthink stuff. Collage, acrylic, modelling paste, watercolor on hot pressed watercolor paper.

Ornaments in my Art Journal

This is a new thing. I always loved ornaments of all sorts and some months ago I bought a book called The World of Ornament. For me, it’s pure magic to browse through the book. I could do it for hours. I used some ideas to do several stencils that I cut recently. If you remember, I was kind of out of inspiration lately and art making was really slow and painful. One day this week I was just doing a simple colorful background in my journal and suddenly I was struck with an idea: why not try something ornamental on top?! This is the result:

I am really happy with how it looks. I am also happy because I used my water based markers and got some beautiful bleeding when mixed with white paint. Pure bliss… This was finished yesterday and today I already started a new one 🙂 Good bye art block! I know what to do now and I am again looking forward to sitting at my painting desk in the morning.

I can trust…

It’s a big thing for me to trust people… no matter that I understand  how important it is for a relationship… I seem to ruin them all with lack of trust. I am trying… more nervous doodles for today and more affirmation. I can trust… all is under control…

Beautiful sunny day… do people trust me?
