20 minutes art journaling – Girl with Lotus Flower

I thought this time would be nice to try to tweak the face proportions and create something obviously exaggerated, but that stays in the whimsical genre. I did a very quick sketch with a black watercolor pencil, with my mindset to elongate the face shape so that she looks way looonger than she is, with big eyes and lips to emphasize the dramatic effect.

Soul Art Day 2018 detail

Soul Art Day 2018 – May 23

Today is International Soul Art Day and all artists, healers, creators of any kind, and visionaries are called to create art today more than any other day. It’s perfect occasion to let go fear of creating art and try something new if you like.   Just like I did: I’m not familiar with collage art. Not long ago, I’ve seen some kind of collage art on Pinterest and decided to give it a try: it’s not my style at all and I’m wondering what journal would …

Si pentru ca iubesc calendarul meu de perete cu flori japoneze, am ales ca aveasta pagina sa fi inspirata de ilustratia din calendar a lunii martie, o ramura cu flori de gutui inflorite. I had …

Drawing Fuchsia Flowers in my art journal - by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro >>> Mixed Media and Art Journaling

Fuchsia in Bloom

With about 110 recognized species, Fuchsia flower looks like a ballerina with many legs. It’s gracious and delicate, hanging upside down with its gorgeous coloring. This flower does not serve as wonderful painting and drawing inspiration, but it’s also a bliss for the eyes. So why not draw and paint it in my art journal?  Exista aproximativ 110 specii recunoscute, floarea de fucsia arata ca o balerina cu mai multe picioare. Este gratioasa si delicata, atarnand cu capul in jos cu coloritul sau uimitor. Aceatsa floare …
