Illustration Class & Moleskine Journal

Hello Everyone!

Did I tell you before that one of my Yule presents was a 3 months ILLUSTRATION COURSE?
WOW WOW WOW!!!
I started on January 13 and fell in love with it. I am completely tabula rasa for what concerns illustration, drawing techniques etc., so I am enjoying every little bit that I learn..
These are some experiments we made during lessons #2 and #3:

And these are some journal pages I made in my Moleskine journal (another Yule present!)

Journal52 challenges. Themes: Pathways - Just Be - Silhouette

Have a great weekend!

2015

Hello Dear Souls!
The holidays are over and a new year has started. Sister and nephews came for a visit and now they are back to Canary Islands.
It's time for something new, isn't it?
This year I haven't chosen a WORD. Instead, I decided to follow the twirls and turns of life. I will confront with all the challenges and try to do my best.
Talking about news, I'm very happy to announce you that I have been gifted an AMAZING ILUSTRATION CLASS! It will be held in my area and I cannot wait to start! :) I want to THANK THE AWESOME SOUL WHO MADE THIS DREAM COME TRUE. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. :)
Last year I didn't make it with the Journal52 challenge. But I don't want to give up. As a new challenge has started, I'm positive that I will catch up with last year pages.
Moreover, I'll be still working with my fellow blogger Melania for the SCRAPPIN' SISTERS CHALLENGES. January challenge is MOON and it's open internationally.
Stay tuned for more upcoming news!
Have a great week.

Blog Hop around the World

Hello!!
Today it's my turn in the BLOG HOP AROUND THE WORLD, a weekly post where artists introduce other artists and share something about themselves.

I was invited by my blog friend Prerna Poojara
Prerna is an amazing intuitive painter and the founder of Buddhas of Compassion Project.
We met when she joined my ChakrART Free Workshop. I love her creativity and her inspiring art, so full of love and color!
Prerna's 108 Ganeshas Project

For this blog hop I have to share with you something about about my art.

1. What am I working on?
Lately I have drawn a cat face and I'm currently in the process of doodling one cat each day until Yule. I called it CATVENTURE. I find doodling very relaxing. It lets my mind rest in a trance-like state.

2. How does my work differ from others in its genre?
Well, I think that each one of us has a unique style. I am completely self taught for what concerns Art. I find inspiration in other artists' works but then I create my own personal pieces. I think that the "whimsyness" of my works is my own typical feature.
3. Why do I create what I do?
Because I have to. :)
I am very emotional and suffering from depression. Drawing, doodling, journaling etc. are the things that keep me happy and whole and don't let my mind break in pieces. Moreover, I do it because it gives me the chance of journeying inside myself.

4. How does my creating process work?
When I find myself in front of a white sheet I usually close my eyes and take some deep breaths. I never know what I'm going to create until I pick up my pencil. That's why I'm not very at ease when people ask me custom drawings. :) 

And now, don't forget to check out the following artists' blogs that will be on the hop on December 15! 

  Stacy is from Canada. I met her some years ago on Etsy and I soon fell in love with her joyful personality and her gorgeous crow paintings. I even own some of them! :) Like me she is a self taught artist and a survivor.

Melania is an Italian fabulous scrapper and mixed media enthusiast. She also runs a collaborative challenge blog called SCRAPPIN' SISTERS.
We met on Facebook last year when I joined her Italian Art Journaling group.
Melania is very creative and a volcano filled with ideas!
 
 I'm leaving you with a collage of my first 5 Catventures. :)
 Have a great week!!

Putting Things together...

...for 2015.
I think I will stick to my 2014 word: "CHANGE".
I'm jotting down some new ideas and projects.

Today I'm showing you what I have been doing this week:
STENCILS!
I have received an early Yule gift and I've already put it at work!
:)



Have a great weekend!

OK. It's been some time...

... since I last blogged.
Things have changed again!
I had to come back home, because my hubby's cardioversion didn't last much. Two weeks ago he had another one and now we are waiting for his checkup in 10 days.
So, back I am.

But I don't want to bother you with my troubles.
I decided that for 2015 I will only blog about ART.

^____^

I have been doodling a lot lately.
And I have also added some new items in my Etsy Shop (click pics for link).
Enjoy and have a great time! :)

New Tutorial for Scrappin' Sisters (Italian & English Versions) & Zentangle Ispired Art

Helloooo!!
This month I'm guest designer for the Italian artful blog called SCRAPPIN' SISTERS.
Each month we host a tutorial and a challenge. It is usually written in Italian, but anyone can join!

Do you remember my friend PRIMITIVE HARE's threadkeeper?
I created a sort of Fall "dreamcatcher".
The tutorial is in Italian and English!
Just click the Scrappin' Sisters link above.
And, YES, the purple background is my dining room wall! :)

I have also gone back at Zendoodling. Things are changing a bit here, but I don't want to talk about it yet.
So I'm working and doodling.
Here are a couple of reminders for my SELF.

Have a great week!

New Bunch of Patterns! 18th: Railwayz, 19th: Geerandola, 20th: Pin-Will, 21st: Drakon

My first week away from home has inspired me some new Tangle Patterns!
I have had a lot of time for thinking, reading and doodling.
I am trying to clean out my brain and move more positive energy.
For now I don't want to talk or write too much about my life journey.
So, you just sit down, relax and enjoy my drawings! :)





Have a great week!
