Abstract marks on packaging paper

The easiest and least expensive way to make an art journal is by using packaging paper you have around the house. You’ve seen already my mini packaging paper journal I posted on the blog last year. I still have plenty of pages to fill in and so many ideas!  Cel mai usor si economic mod de  crea un art jurnal este folosind hartie de impachetat pe care probabil o aveti prin casa. Ati vazut deja mini-jurnalul facut in hartie de impachetat pe care l-am postat anul trecut. …

Soft pastels portrait on packaging paper art journal

Remember my brown packaging paper art journal? It’s time to draw again and fill in the pages! It’s been a while since I haven’t used my soft pastels, and today I grab them and drew this face: Va mai amintiti de jurnalul din hartie de imapchetat?

If you’ve been an outside person during the summer and autumn, then chances are to enjoy this month as any other month in the calendar. Se spune ca noiembrie este o luna trista si depresiva, dar nu trebuie sa fie asa daca nu vrei. Daca ai cutreierat pe afara pe timpul verii si al toamnei, atunci ai mari sanse sa te bucuri …

Whimsical portraiture on bag paper - autumn inspiration by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro

Watercolor Woman Portrait on wrapping paper

One of these days, when the sun seemed to warm the earth even more beautiful than he does in the spring, I went for a walk in the park. I took with me my art journal made from wrapping paper that I wrote about in here. I said to myself to take advantage of this wonderful day and draw directly in nature. But I didn’t drew leaves and other natural Autumnal wonders, but a portrait that I may say it came out pretty good. Intr-una din zilele …
