2 years ago I never painted anything in my life (ok painted bedroom wall and  my nails maybe few times). A paintbrush was an enigmatic tool reserved for those special people who were born gifted to be able to produce images with that magic wand…

 

If you are one of those creative people blessed with madness of constant visualisation you know what I mean saying  that every day can bring an inspiration. I find seasons and natural changes in each month somehow worth remembering. Images that can hit your mind can be found everywhere from the park to bus station. It can be a found, random object (often called “rubbish or litter by some people;) but to you it has that colour, pattern, structure, reminds you of something…you name it. I decided to do this monthly, simple collection of my images and words that I find inspiring each month. Feel free to share or pin it. And with a hint of some humour I hope it will shake up your creativity a little bit. Happy creativity in November!

Have you ever created something so unfamiliar to you that wondered why did you do it? It has been happening to me for 6 moths during my art journaling in the biggest art journal format I had. I could not understand why constantly the kind of urban grunge theme was emerging. I don't like cities, its noisy environment and myself choose to live in a small town where its easy to have contact with nature. And here we go - urban style journal pages, like city buildings walls shouting with graffiti...why, why, why? 

Art journaling started and put on fire my journey into mixed media world and still is a part of my very regular creative practice. Art journals are secrets keepers, they go beyond words and meaning...

I believe when we start trusting out intuition through creative process and let art talks to us instead dictating pre-planned outcome we somehow reclaim ourselves, our soul and true self. Convention acquired through years and socialization and external expectations may be blocking that unique connection with true self.Shaking and twisting the conventional approach is like some form of release helping to see beyond the blocks. 

 

"Art will tell me..." - this what I trusted when first time faced this massive and scary blank canvas. As per Brenè Brown saying "daring greatly" is sometimes more than just being brave.
