It’s been a challenge to make the time this week, but here I am on Thursday again looking at my pages, wondering if they are finished and also looking at the clock wondering if I can get this post done before school pick up!
This weeks prompts in the Get Messy art journal challenge were by Karen and they had us art journaling to music. Miss 15 came in to hear “Flower duet” from Leo Delibes’ opera Lakme playing, and asked what I was doing. I told her that I was doing my art journaling homework to which she replied that, that was pretty random and she wished that it was her homework. Yes it was random and that is one of the things I love about Get Messy, week to week is a surprise, where will the prompts take me ?And what will the tutorials be about? This week I’ve also been watching some things on Periscope but that’s a whole other story!
Finding time to art journal whilst listening to an aria on repeat proved a bit tricky, one moment I would be enjoying the music and getting a feel for putting colour on my page, the next I was being asked questions about things ( I can’t even remember what, but it was really not very serene!!!). So I put it aside until today and let some ideas grow till I could art journal with the house to myself.That seems to work so much better for me. I can draw, sketch and doodle amongst others but I seem to be able to get more creative flow happening when I am by myself. How about you?
I’ve also realised I need to streamline how I listen to music, at some stage I’d like to have my ipod sorted with some play lists, so I can just plug in and go. It makes sense, I clean the house to certain music and it would be nice to have a creative days play list. Or should I sign up to spotify??? For now though, I am going to keep it simple, finish this post and have a few minutes serenity in the beautiful sunshine that is beckoning me.
Thanks for stopping by.
