"For The Record" - Inspired By A Song

Hello Everyone!

I had quite a bit of work to do lately, but now I am back!
The theme for April of the Art Journal Journey is "For The Record" - Inspired by a Song.......and let me tell you how much I love this theme, but I always have to watch out that I don't just start copying the lyrics because I love the song so much.....enough talking / writing....
Here  is my work so far:
I started with the song "Bachelorette" by Björk - this song has been one of my favorites for ages and I still think it is so powerful and intense!

And then this beautiful song by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds came into my mind: "Into my Arms"
So I ended up doing this one:
On the right side some circles were shining through from the other page I did for a friend of mine I can't show you yet - so I thought: This is the right place for the dear required in the Mix it Monthly Challenge theme!

And at the end of the evening I started this one: Placebo - "36 Degrees"
I hope you enjoyed my page and please leave a comment! And check out the songs, that inspired me!
Yours Anie

Hello and Happy New Year -

the theme of ART JOURNAL JOURNEY was WINTERWONDERLAND,

but since we usually had around 10-15°c  - I didn't really get a Winter Wonderland feeling this winter!
My page turned out green and is about hope and spring....
I guess I missed the theme, but I hope you still enjoy my page:


 ....and then we found a winter wonderland in the mountains....



 The kids made this wonderful ice lamp which has a candle inside and they also made some dirt and snow muffins ;)

what wings are for.......

Hello,

after a long period of not publishing anything at all (due to work) I am finally back.
I am happy to be back....

A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!

And I have some work for you to see....Mix it Monthly
When I showed this journal page to my friend she answered:

What wings are for....to dream - to fly - to soar - to explore:


I hope you enjoyed my pages! Please leave a comment :)

time and boredom / zeit und langeweile

Hello everyone,

the Art Journal Journey's theme TIME made me think about my boredom diary I used to have, so I got it back out an thought about time again.

When I think about time these days I usually think about not having enough of it. Not enough time to paint, create and whatever else keeps popping up in my head.

But there were other times in my life. Obviously in 2003 I was so bored, I started my boredom diary:




Maybe someday - when the time is right - I will make a big collage out of it!
Hope you didn't get bored ;)

Flowers II

And here as promised more Flowers for the Mix it Monthly Challenge




 For this first one I used a background that I prepared with blue lino ink. I used some handmade paper to create the flowers and later on I stamped and drew over the page at bit. It is still quite reduced, but I do like it like that.

And then I did this page when I was drawing with my little daughter....





Take a look at what my little daughter did, after she made me give her a journal just like mine :)

Thank you very much for stopping by and please leave a comment!

Flowers I

Hello there,

I can't believe I haven't been writing since May!!!! My life was quite busy lately - I went to Greece with my students and once our school year was over, went on a vacation with my family. With kids at home and my husband working there really wasn't much time to draw. But now I am back.

I actually did two water color paintings on my birthday:

I really wanted to do some flowers for:

Mix it Monthly:   August / September Mixed Media Flowers

 but then I saw a swan on my paper....


I also did some zentangle flowers, which my 7 year-old daughter wanted to color....




And I made a sheep for my son:
and a cat for my daughter!



and those for my mother in law.....
so I wasn't too lazy after all.

Have a nice week and more flowers soon!
