Hello! It´s been a while I know but I am ready to share new content that I hope it inspires you, this time with a new artjournal page that I created for the new year but it can be used for any ocassion though.
Before we get started I want to say a few things. As many of you, I´ve been in shock with what is happening in the world and secluded at home, first of course in wonder of what was going to happen and doing a lot of reflexion and learning from others what was going to be our new way of living.
Since all this started, two years have passed, I thought of coming back earlier but instead I decided I should take this time for myself and learn a few things I wanted since a long time before all this.
How many times do we say -I´ll do it later- and never take on it? The time never comes but the pandemic gave us that, among other things of course, a lot of time to recapitulate about what we have done and how our lives had been, at least to me, it is crucial that we ask this questions and take perspective and then try to make our lives better and use what ever time we have to improve our lives and maybe other´s as well.
Also, this was a perfect time to learn what we wanted, read those books that have been waiting in the pile, make those cookies you love, watch a lot of videos and Netflix and it was a good opportunity to use this to some kind of renovation.
I went back to my textile studies that I left aside a long time ago, I also kept on studying ilustration and painting of course, I also started making new fabric dolls and try to make them better and making better clothing and also took on embroidery, two years is a lot of time, I went out a few times to visit my family but that´s all and now ´ve learned that is crucial that we take our time more seriously and learn to use it better, sadly they don´t teach you that in school, one has to be alert and recognize what is missing in your life and apply it.
Let´s take on this new artjournal page!
Do you need help with some ideas? Here are a few:
What you dream about when you are awake or asleep or which are your favorite things in the world, name ten of your favorite words, what are your favorite meals or simply use it for what happened in your day. I used it for what I wanted for this year, some guidelines into what I will direct my energies and a few words I like, there is more than what I could fit in this page so maybe I´ll do a second page next!
Bring out your favorite colors!
Ok, here is a bit of how it started, a few colors splashed here and there, I knew I wanted some frames for different ideas so I started to paint boxes in different sizes and colors, I used every color I liked, no particular plans on this, just let it all flow... like one of my words in the page.
