Looking straight to the future

Welcome, dear soul! It’s already February and we are starting a new month with much excitement and lots of creative ideas for my art journals. There is no chance of getting bored when it comes to art journals, because every time you turn the page, something totally new emerges and you got yourself with a new face, or a new abstract or whatever you’re into drawing and/or painting. 

This Month you’ll gonna see me working in my junk journal where I will create two beautiful faces, some watercolor buildings, two faces in colored pencils {coming back to colored pencils feels so great, remembering the January 2015 30 portraits project}, and one face drawn directly with a purple pen! 

The face you’re about to see today got me thinking on the future. You never know what the future will bring, and even if you could somehow find out, wouldn’t that be too boring and predicting to know ahead? Living life one bit every day is more interesting than knowing what exactly will happen tomorrow or two months from now. 


Bine ai venit, draga suflet creator! Este deja februarie si incepem o noua luna cu mult extuziasm si multe idei creative pentru art jurnalele mele. Nici o sansa sa te plictisesti cand vine vorba de art journaling, pentru ca de fiecare data cand intorci pagina, ceva complet nou se naste si te-ai ales cu o noua fata, o noua pagina abstracta sau orice mai vrei tu sa desenezi si/sau pictezi.

In acesta luna ma veti vedea lucrand in junk jurnalul meu unde voi crea doua fete frumoasa, voi picta niste cladiri in acuarela, doua fete in creioane colorate {este minunat sa te intorci la creioane colorate, aduceti-va aminte de proiectul lunii ianuarie 2015, 30 de portrete in 30 de zile},  si o fata desenata direct cu un pix cu mina mov!

Fata de astazi m-a dus cu gandul in viitor. Nu stii niciodata ce-ti rezerva viitorul, si chiar daca ai putea sa afli cumva, n-ar fi prea plictisitor si predictibil sa stii dinainte ce-o sa se intample?! Sa traiesti viata cate o bucatica in fiecare zi este mult mai interesant decat sa stii exact ce-o sa se intample maine sau peste doua luni.

This was again painted in charcoal pencil and acrylics with white gesso. I really started to love this style and eventually it kind of reminds me how easy it can be to draw a face if you just get started. 😉 Keep adding pages in your art journal!

Aceasta fata a fost iar pictata cu ajutorul unui creion carbune si acrilice cu gesso alb. A inceput sa-mi placa cu adevarat acest stil si-mi aduce aminte cumva de cat de usor este pana la urma sa desenezi daca te apuci sa o faci 😉 Continua sa adaugi pagini noi in art jurnalul tau!

I wanted to draw a flower in her hair, but the result seems more like everything else but a flower. So you can “see” what you want to see, it may be a hair jewelry or a headband? Yeah, definitely a headband! Only that you don’t wear a headband with the embellishment in the middle of the forehead, LOL!

Am vrut sa desenez o floare in parul ei, dar rezultatul numai a floare nu aduce. Asa ca puteti “vedea” ce vreti fiecare sa vedeti, ar putea fi o bijuterie in par sau o bentita? Aham, sigur e o bentita! Doar ca nu porti bentita cu decoratiunea pusa in mijlocul fruntii, heh!

Voi ce-ati mai desenat?

Pe curand,

  1. Imi place la nebunie fata asta! O sa incerc sa desenez si eu asa, as vrea sa-mi iasa si mie, insa nu stiu ce-o sa iasa. … ; ma gandesc sa ma apuc si eu de art journaling, e prima oara cand aud de asa ceva si pare interesant ca activitate de relaxare; trebuie sa-mi cumpar un jurnal ca nu am nimic la indemana si niste culori…

    1. Multumesc! In primul rand trebuie sa incerci sa desenezi ca…tine! Evident ca nu ai de unde sa stii ce-o sa iasa, dar poti incerca, nu? Despre art journaling am scris si aici si aici, este o activitate foarte placuta care nu are reguli. Poti folosi ce-ti trece prin minte intr-un art journal. La inceput mi s-a parut fara noima, dar apoi am fost prinsa in frumusetea si unicitatea acestei activitati.
      Multumesc pentru vizita si comentarii!
