Just some color!

I woke up early and decided that today was the day that I wasn't going to create a project.  Told myself that I was going to read and rest and do nothing else.
Yeap, didn't go as planned. Here I am, three projects later, sharing one of them.
I had fun creating this simple but colorful mixed media tag!
Mediums used were Graphite, Pigma pens, Prisma coloring pencils and Distress Ink.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 30: I did it!!!!

Wow, 30 days of blogging!!!
I can't believe I did it, I blogged for 30 days...
Now I am asking myself why didn't I do this before, will I keep this ritual of pouring my day to day on a blog post and sharing it with the World?
Why not?
I have learned that I'm blogging for myself. I vent, I tell stories, I simply say: today I am tired to write; yet I am putting all this on a place where everyone who wants to, can read it.
Some will agree, others will disagree with my writing; but that is who I am at that moment, just plain, simple, open... Me.
Thanks Effy and all the amazing people who took from their time and left a comment or sent a private message. Each word is and will be treasured forever.
Hugs, hugs, and more hugs!
Here is the painting I have been working on for the past days. Still not finished but a part of me that is so important and private. I open up to you and hope that you feel my presence through this creation.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 29: Resting...

A new day and I am feeling better.
No painting or drawing today, but lots of fun...resting.
Sometimes we forget that resting is part of the self care package. I tend to think I can do thi sand that and then I can probably do something more.
Must learn to stop and rest.
Might be a hard lesson to learn and practice, but I really need this.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 28: Stop!

Today I had a little scare, my body decided to play a little game called high blood pressure and it wasn't fun.
I really take good care of my body, it is just that things happen and I tend to close up and the stress is just to much.
New meds and some recommendations from my doctor are part of my new self-care routine.
I will rest now, but wanted to share a little page I made with a digital image:
More details HERE!
Are you taking good care of your body? Please take a moment and think about it.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 27: Patience...

I've learned the hard way that patience is something that you need to survive in this world.
I am usually reminding myself about this, the reason being: I am the most impatient person anyone could imagine.
Here is the trick, I have to deal a lot with people that don't have my same priorities, how strange is that? So they take things a little differently than I do. I need something, I go for it, now; then there are this other people, who think that they have all the time of the World to get that thing that they need so much.
Can you see how much I need patience and how difficult it is some time to keep the cool and let those around me do things at their own speed.
Uh... I feel better!
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 26: ATC Fun!

How did your Monday go?
Mine was filled with lots of work, but I made time to play with paper and made two ATC'c.
Love the background, it was really simple to create: Copics and alcohol.
It was so much fun, I can wait to try this on an art journal page.

What did you create today?
Did you have lots of fun?
The hing is you can create a simple project each day, doesn't have to be big or complicated, it just needs to be something that you love!
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 25: Color, Paint and Fun!

At  last I had time to paint during the weekend and it was so much fun.
I really need to create something, all the time. When I am unable to create I just feel like I am missing something.
Well today was the day, and I have paint all over me... I am dancing the happy dance!
I finished one of my art journal pages with some doodles and worked on my Book Of Days (BOD).
While painting in BOD, it felt so freeing not to have a specific theme, no image in my head, just wanted to see color, lots of colors, whatever happened on that page was fine with me.
At the end I loved it and will add some journaling later, what I will be writing is kind of private...
First stop is my finished art journal page, you might remember it from Day 8, of the Blog-a-thon
 This is my new page
Do you like them?
I sure do love them both, can't wait to start writing on this last page.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 24: Too Happy to Blog!

Is it possible to be to happy to blog?
I just had an amazing day with my family and didn't blog about it.
Lots of talking, shopping, hugging and eating was done during the day and I just kept thinking, they are leaving tomorrow (today).
I am going to be with them during the morning and then they go back to College.
That's all for now, will get back with you all later.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

My family is together and I m so happy.
I have missed my kids so much. I don't tell them, so they don't feel sad for me, but boy do I miss them.
We already had dinner and family time at the table, lots of conversation and laughing.
They return to College on Sunday, but good news is that I get to share some time with them during next weekend when I visit my parents.
Time to say good bye, have a wonderful night!
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 21: Owning my space...

I woke up so sick today.
My back in so much pain, my body just couldn't move, my head about to explode...
Seriously, I was very sick; hum... then again you have to finish reading this post to find out what made me so sick.
Even thought I was feeling so bad I went to work.
While I was seating at my desk, asking myself: Why am I so sick all of the sudden?
Lately I've been feeling great; so feeling this bad took me completely by surprise.
As I thought and tried to find out the mystery of this pain, I got the idea that maybe rearranging my computer and desk would help me feel better.
I know it seams like a stupid thing to do when you are feeling such terrible back pain, but there I was planning where to put things.
Guess what?
I began to feel better, I saw things differently, not just because they were placed in different places that usual, but because I did this in order to get control of my space.
I need to own my space and I want to have things where I feel comfortable, where I can reach easily for them, not where someone else thought they should be.
Those people don't work here, but I do!
Are you getting the owning my space concept?
All of the sudden I could see art on the walls and over the desk, I am owning my space.
Yes, I began talking about pain,but here is the thing, it is easy to say: "Wow, I really feel bad today!"; and stay in bed all day long.
Reality is, that sometimes I don't want to accept my reality: I love my work, but I don't love where I work, at least not all the time...
Feeling sick is the perfect excuse for not going to the office, but it doesn't solve the fact that sometimes I don't feel comfortable there.
Working into making that space mine, gives me that feeling of ownership and when you own something you have to be present, and protect it and take care of it and just LOVE it.
Today the transformation began, I feel happy in my space and that is the most important thing.
Oh, I forgot to tell you that my back doesn't hurt. I've been doing lots of things in my work and now in my creative space and my body is just doing great.
Yay Me!
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 20: Sick...

It has been a long and exhausting day at work.
Must admit that I thought that I was coming home to do some art, but now I just feel sick.
I need to rest, the last two nights I haven't sleep well and of course my body know it.
So my plan for the night transformed from creating art to creating sweet dreams and allowing my body to rest and regain strength.
A little meditation, before going to bed.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 19: Playing with colors...

I survived!!!
What a day, I am so tired and so stressed out. I like my work so much and then there are those days, when I finish the day just by faith, totally exhausted... today was one of those days.
I really needed to create something, needed to see paint on my hands and I had so much fun putting this background together.
It took me about 40 minutes and I am so happy with the result. The first layer is watercolors, then Golden fluid acrylics and for the last layer I used India ink.
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 18: Dreams...

During the past days I've been  thinking a lot about my dreams and why has it been so difficult to reach them.
Most of those dreams where hidden somewhere in my heart and during this self exploration, they have returned to me.
Looking back at myself as a child, and then during my teenage years I can feel how those dreams were replaced with new ones, like finishing a degree and family.
It was not an easy process, it took time and many conversations with my parents, family and teachers. I am sure they meant well, but now, I can see that young woman telling herself, those dreams are not as important as graduating and taking care of your family.
I am thankful for my education and of course my family is my priority, but some how, I feel that I didn't have to put everything that I dreamed behind, hiding it in my inner most sacred place, never to be found.
I could have realized many of those dreams and do all the things that I was doing, I just needed to be creative with my time.
Reality is, I can't go back in time, but I can work with those dreams today, and tomorrow and the next day. See, that's the beauty of dreams, you can work with them when you want to, it will never be late.
Here is an art Journal page in my Book Of Days, that I made several months ago but never dared touch, it is so beautiful. But Today as I looked at it, I just felt that there was no use in having a blank art journal, I need to fill those pages with my story, my dreams and my life whether I am happy or sad.
My feet are featured, they are tired, but this time nothing will stop me from following my dreams.
So dare to dream and do it!
I would like to share this project in the following places:
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 17: My intentions... part two!

I am covered in paint, gel medium and spray paints. What an amazing day!!!!
My day began with a wonderful meditation and mantra chanting, I was ready to create...
My first task was to add some details to the painting that I had started some days ago. I even used my fingers to spread the colors and I am loving that it has taken it's own life.
Then I did some reading about the Goddesses, the book is called Ancient Secrets of the Goddesses, by Velva Dawn Silver-Hughes.
I am loving this book, each reading brings a special energy that transforms and helps me deal with my divine feminine, in order to reach balance.
I was inspired and took some time to rethink where I am and what am I doing as an artist.
Many thing came to mind, but the one that keep repeating was the fact that I am doing too much and have the feeling that I am loosing myself.
I decided to start Book of Days again, a fresh start, with new eyes, open heart and no fears this time.
I'm sharing my first Book of  Mirrors spread for this new start:
Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 16: Is it really Friday?

Yay... it is Friday!!!
I have been so tired lately, maybe it is just lots of work or maybe it is lots of soul searching and learning to be me.
Plain and simply Me!
As I write I'm hearing beautiful Reiki music and am trying to let go of all that weight that we accumulate during the week.
Myrrh incense is filling my senses and I begin to feel so relax.
I will continue to work with my inner self and get back to everyone tomorrow.

Big hug and lots of positive energy!

Day 15: I am in love...

Yesterday I told you that I was going to play with my new Golden paints and I had so much fun.
The texture is so wonderful and the richness of the colors is just amazing.
Created a beautiful background and added my face and will continue to work with it later in the night.
Here are some pictures of my work:

I am in love with my new paints!!!!
Big hug and lots of positive energy!
