I haven't been here for a week or so, I had a feeling I wouldn't while doing my last post as I had had a very strange week & was left feeling a little fragile...so I did as many of my blogging buddies have told me in the past and took a little time for me. I haven't done *too* much art
|though obviously I've still done a little (a FULL week plus without paint??? = Torture!!) |
This is just a quick acrylic slap-dash with a little black pen on top for definition
but instead I've been spending time returning to the *regular* kind of journaling (that old school version - written). The last entry my diary below had gotten was three years ago, and a completely different person began writing in it again.
|The artwork on the diary reads 'The Soul Would Have No Rainbow if the Eyes had no Tears'|
However, following my belief that you should always create a positive out of a negative, I took that huge amount of feeling and made the most personal video I have ever created. It contains a tutorial for creating an art journal page with techniques that help get out your feelings, in the hopes it will be of use to others.
And an update on that emotion is I'm feeling fresher, brighter and happier. I think I have understood (once again) that everything happens for a reason, and even the bad things are there to prompt you on, make you strive harder and be a better person/woman/daughter/friend/artist etc.
So now the all the 'life stuff' is outta the way onto the fun bit...picking giveaway winners for these random little packets lol
