Art Journal: Praying Mantis

Today’s Art Journal page was a bit of a creative outburst mixed with a bit of frustration that it wasnt turning out how I envisioned. Sometimes I push myself to be creative. And sometimes I’m just not feeling it. At those times, I’ve learnt its better to do something else like bake a cake or go for a walk. These Art Journal pages have been good for breaking down barriers of perfection and its nice to have it all on record.
What do you do to stay creative?xobec

Hellloooo! I hope you’ve all had an amazing week. Here is another page from my Art Journal. Do you remember this photo I took of a bumble bee? Its one of my all time favourites. So I mixed it up with some pretty washi tape and water colours. The colours in this page pretty much sum up how I feel about life at the moment, full of colour, happiness, different directions… Have a perfect weekend friends!xobec

Ooooooh I LOVE how today’s art journal turned out! I used a purple ink pen to outline the hand drawn part of the flowers then soon after I applied water colour paint. It blurred it in a way I haven’t experienced before. I need to think of something beautiful to make with all these art journal pages… at the moment they are floating around my desk! Have you got any ideas?xobec
