When there is no inspiration for art...

It is canada day again! Rain in the mid morning was not that annoying. Actually it was just fun to watch and listen the sound of rain.There is something in the sound of rain. It was just a pleasant rain. Not angry rain. 
The rain didn't make me interested in making more art. So, in the afternoon, I decided to just use some paint. It wasn't big fun. Yet, I created a background page on the journal.

The left page seems like a background right? The right one looks like a kid played with paint. It tells you about my dry mood to do art.
Then, the odd thing from my mystery box was asking me to make some texture. Since the lavender paint is not making any ideas, I choose pink and an index card. 
Now, that is something nice.It can be used later. 
 Now, I have this idea to make a greeting card. So, picked up a blank card and added some sort of paper edging. Then I dipped the  brush in black acrylic paint to write.
That is not finished yet. I left the card for drying. It needs some glitter and some color, don't you think?

 Happy Canada Day!

Share for fun

New page on Mixedmedia Art Journal

 My art journal is really an ordinary book. It has ruled pages too. 
That is the one I started experimenting with. It still has pages. 
My birthday was last week. I don't have great party or celebration for that. 
But, my daughter usually give gifts on my birthday. 
This year, I decided to make a page to remember about her gifts to me.

She gave me an origami swan. Inside it she wrote how I support her more than her friends. Wow! It was lovely!! 
She made a beaded necklace for the swan too. Along with it, she gave me chocolate with I love Mom on it. 
She know, I am a chocolate lover. 

I added little paint to the swan. The background with yellow, pink and orange is a piece of kitchen towel, I used to wipe my brush.
I made few multimedia background using facial tissue paper after viewing a video on youtube. It was shared on the G+. I will try to find the link again to put it here.

 The chocolate wrappers were beautiful. She bought it from GoDiva. Don't you love the polka dots?
My sweet girl knows mummy's likes. 
I used glue stick to glue them down. 
Now let us see the completed look:It is still drying only. You can see the cardboard I put beneath the page to protect my next page.

The Altered Book Art Journal

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

The book is still getting more embellishments.
Remember this post? I covered it with cloth on the front cover.
Now I added a patterned paper on the back. Then Modpodged a handmade doily on it. 

I am going to keep this journal to explore and find myself. 
Since the front cover has a butterfly, I added a flower also. May be I will add some more to colour to it since the fabric is dark brown...
A little more color is not going to hurt... I think. I need to think about it. 
So for now, 

 I started the journaling with these...

Anyway, it is the beginning.... Now, one page at a time... I promise to keep recording everything in this blog too.
