Hi there!  Just sharing a few images of what I have been working on during my morning art journaling time.  What have you been working on in your studio?

If you are enjoying the way I photograph my artwork take a look at “How to Create Flatlay Photos for Instagram” as my gift to you!

I would like to invite you to hang out with us in the “Clarity Thru Color” Facebook Group.  It is a private group of supportive creatives where I offer podcasts on techniques and Q & A’s.

 

Happy creating!

Robyn

365 Days In The Life Of A Journal – Tutorial

As I awaken this morning I found myself basking in a smile of creativity, I could sense the space in my physical being that holds my creative energy and essence, it also became clear to me from and experiential place that everything we want comes from this place…more on this in another post…

Today, I wanted to begin sharing some of the processes behind the painted pages in my Journal Flips..

Have a creatively inspired day, in every step you take…Enjoy!

“Day 5 – Stimulating Ideas”

I’m a huge fan of Black & White abstract art…when I see it my mind immediately begins to whirl and I seem to go into a trance, imagining all sorts of things that the lines, curves, strokes, dots etc. release…


I’ve spent some time studying this and found that when our brain develops at infancy Black & White simple shapes play a large role in the brains development…This is why so many baby toys have B&W lines or polka dots on them….

In this journal entry I painted on paper using sumi ink, then I cut the art into 4’s and then reassembled it…


I took the opportunity to stimulate my creative thinking while being willing to look differently at what I had just created…then be willing to cut it up… and try something different!

 

I feel that we have to be willing to do the same with our lives…we’ve created them…there moving in a particular direction…

Do you like what you’re experiencing everyday?  If you are…ask yourself “how can I make it even better?”…then be willing to make some changes, alter things a bit..


And if you’re not crazy about what you experience everyday…you want different results…be willing to start cutting away, re-arranging and adding new experiences that are more in line with where you want to go…your goals and dreams…


I believe that we don’t make mistakes in our lives because every road we turn down creates an experience we can grow from…however I believe we can arrive at a point that we can say, “well I have had enough of that experience, I don’t feel it serves me anymore”…and then make changes… and this includes our education and Degrees earned, our job or career, our marriages or life partners…if it ain’t working fix it!


Don’t be afraid move onward and upward!


Look at the Black & White of your life today…see what you discover!

“Gallery Walls”

I’m a big fan of “Gallery Walls”…

I love the eclectic nature of the art…

The Boho feel…

The idea that art has been individually selected and collected over time…

Gallery Walls suggest that art has been found in small out of the way places…

Flea Markets, side street Art Galleries, Family Attics or Basements, friends gifting the art they created…

It’s so warm and personal and very expressive…

Looking at a Gallery Wall, you get an immediate sense of the person who’s wall it is…

Whatever you create, paintings, drawings, sculptures, quotes, writings, it all can become part of a Gallery Wall…share your work with others…start by creating a Gallery Wall of your work to keep you inspired!
