the mind becomes calm and tranquil...


Had a bit of a creative block this morning so just decided to mess around with paints on my journal pages..have made a little video too to go with getting past the white blank page syndrome! Had a look at Milliande's 2010 art journal prompts and for day 3 you had to put a circle on the page. As I was doing the backgrounds I was thinking of circles and the page just lent itself to a simple yoga pose against a warm orange sun. In yoga we often use the colours orange, sky blue then violet purple to represent various parts of the body so wanted to incorporate these colours around the circle.

I love this, it reminds me of my mum, who used to do a lot of yoga when I was little

That one came out really good, Lorraine. Nice inspiration, the yoga pose.

Your art journal page is gorgeous! I use silhouettes too sometimes on my pages, the effect of the yoga pose against the circle/sun is stunning!
