Never Happened

Hello my Friends!
Today I'd like to share with you my recent journal pages - a very simple, spontaneous, spur of the moment spread.
True raw emotional journaling, simply to let off steam.


I was acting really quick here - no fancy techniques -
- just one cut out photo, tiny tags that were lying there on my desk -
- color smudges with watercolor pencils and a very soft pencil + some Distress inks pads stamped directly onto the page.


Then some wild splashes with Indian ink and a touch of Honeycomb stamp here and there.
That's it. That was enough.


Do you do that too from time to time?
Do you draw/paint/journal/scrapbook without much thinking, just raw emotions, no need for perfection?
I hope you do. I strongly recommend it. ;)

Lots of hugs to you all

I do often do that - but usually it's when I am angry or hurt and my pages really show that - and they end up looking like a storm hit them - so I don't show them. It does, however, calm me down - so all is good. Your pages are really lovely and pretty colors. Thanks for sharing.

Will see you next Tuesday and Wednesday in Springfield, IL - I am so excited!

This is so beautiful. The simplicity and colours appeal greatly yet even in this simplicity there is great talent! TFS

Ha! Yes, I do paint without thinking... a lot... I don't know if I COULD think while I painted, even if I tried.

I like the "raw emotion." This is the kind of art that I love the most.

I often try NOT to do too much planing before a project...just create. See you Sunday at Artsy! Can't wait.

Powerful page in its simplicity.

It's beautiful! I wish I could journal like that. But I never like my own paintings and handwritten tekst. So I stick with layouts and canvasses or some tags here and there ;)
