MY NEW INSPIRATION or #prompt60index with Daisy Yellow Art

After I started the #icad challenge with http://daisyyellowart.com in June/July this year, and even FINISHED it, I was hooked on creating art journal pages for the last weeks, nearly every day.

Lately I am stuck or out of sync with the project. Sitting in front of my art staff not knowing where to begin, what to do and all I would start ending up in a mess.

Today I read a new post on fb of Daisy Yellow Art about the prompt60index and I felt drawn to it immediately. 

I looked for a journal or pages I could use for this project and found an long kept manuscript book, where I jotted down and pasted notes in about writing. I completed a course in short story writing yeaaarrs ago and started to collect notes and ideas in this manuscript. As there are more than half of the pages blank, I will use this journal for this new challenge.

Below find a few pictures of this book as it is right now and I will keep you informed of all my progress to fill in the blank pages in it in time.

Please feel inspired to go to daisyyellowart.com and see what inspiration you can get out of this beautiful blog and group.

For now: be inspired, have fun and create on paper what’s deep inside you. It has a healing side as well.

Lots of love 

    
 

HOW TO CREATE AN ART JOURNAL PAGE or have fun

imageO
open any page in your art journal or use a loose blank page
add some circles of colour, I used ordinary watercolour, and clutch paper together, and more colour, clutch together again….
you can do that a few times with different colour until page looks good to you
hold page or book upright and add some blobs of colour to let it run down the page, turn upside down and do the same
this is how I create this page

image

cut items out of magazines or gift wrap

image

and glue onto page, I used home made modge podge [gel medium] but you can use any glue to your liking

image

add some stamps, I used a bought one, which I forgot to add into the pic, or use any object you can find to stamp onto page

image

stamp a frame around pages, you can use any medium, ink, water colour or any pens to do that, explore your own options, look what you have on hand or can find around the house, I use a piece of a mosaic sheet I could imagespare…image

cut out some quotes, phrases or words which compliment the right page and glue on the left page, you can also use word stamps, stickers or hand written wordsimage

now you can add more colour, stamps to the page

image

I used some templates, mine are cappuchino templates, and I used my finger to dab the paint on

imageimage

paint some more circles with brush, add some stamps with found objects, use whateveryou have on hand and as much as you feel your page needs

image

outline some items with different pens, white gelli pen, permanent black marker, golden gel pen, or use whatever you have

image

I also coloured over some paint with neo colour twisters
now you can leave the page as is or still add more
do whatever feels good to you

image

Have fun
Love and Light

ICAD or a challenge completed

This year I participated for the first time in the challenge ICAD of daisyyellowart.com
There are only two days left of the challenge and I am kind of sad, proud, and inspired altogether.
Sad that it is over soon, proud of myself that I have done it up to the end
and inspired to do more art journaling, icads or anything likewise on a daily base.
There have been so many beautiful, awesome and pretty cards. I have met so many lovely people, I received so many kind words, inspiring comments and even received an icad from one of the participants of America. I can only tink of one word precribing all of this.
WOW!!!
Wow to all of us.
It was a great time and I will be participating again next year for sure.

Below please find a few of my icads in the meantime.
As I am only working afternoons as from September, I will have lots of me time for a while and I will use it exclusively for me, my daly art journaling and for writing again, which I have negelected a bit in the past few month.

Thanks again to all of the icad group members. Well done to all of you and keep beingdaisyyellowart.com inspired.
I for sure will be…..

GRATITUDE JOURNALS or my way of spending a few hours in harmony

image

image

image

image

image These are 2 of my latest journals I created. I love to loose myself in creating with paper, when I need a few hours to calm down and forgetting….           

I would love to do the ICAD challenge, but need some inspiration and to start tutorials, step by step tutorials or just your ideas and creations tips and tricks. 

I did one card a few days ago, in the dark, before the TV. Theme was rainbows, but I find my card a bit dull. But it is a start, isn’t it? Please send me your ideas and creations . I need to be inspired and motivated.

Thank you so much.

Love and light

FOR MY FRIEND MARIANNE KEIL or please help and donate

This is Marianne Keil.

Shortly after this picture was taken in March 2014 at Erindi Game Reserve, where we have spent a lovely long weekend together, she was diagnosed with leukemia.

From one hour to the other she needed to be flown from Windhoek, Namibia to CapeTown for treatment.

As this wasn’t bad enough at all, while the doctors had to do a smaller operation while putting a stand for the chemo therapies, she observed severe burning wounds, as this was done by laser.

By now she had receive a bone marrow transplant from her brother and she is doing relatively well and will come home, if no other complications will occur, at the beginning of 2015.

Now the family is burdened with huge medical bills, as the medical aid has been depleted long ago.

To help her and her family to cope with the bills, the Cancer Association here in Namibia founded THE MARIANNE KEIL TRUST FUND. Several events have been held so far to raise money for the Fund. But there is still a huge hole to be covered.

I asked myself what I could do to help and raise money and I found a way.

As I am a Reiki healer, Reiki II, and have a website, blog and online shop, I just added A Marianne Keil Special to my online shop. Reiki Healing Information here.

If you want to help and add to the fund here is a way for people around the world to do it.

If you will buy the special for 10.00 dollars, you will receive a distance Reiki healing session for 15 minutes every week until 31.12.2014 via my Reiki Note book, where I already have a few names in and I am sending Reiki Healing to everybody who is written in the book at least every Monday for 15 minute and sometimes more, as I send Reiki to it immediately as soon as I add a new name

I feel this is a really wonderful idea. You will not only do a good deed, but you will even receive something if you donate to the Fund.

I will pay at least 50 % of all money collected through this Marianne Keil Special offer to the Fund and will keep you updated and I will post all transactions or cheques I will pay over to the Fund here on the blog.

Additionally I want to ask you to press it, re- blog and share this post to all your followers and friends.

I suppose there is not one of us out here in the blogging world who does not know a loved one who has or had cancer, or even died of it.  So please help me here, to be a great help to my friend and family by donating.

If you want to donate and receive the Reiki Treatment, please state your name and one word conditions for what you would like the treatment for, e.g. Marianne Keil, Cancer, or financial, or trauma….. and if you do not want to receive Reiki Healing, please also state it and I will contribute the whole amount to the fund.

For all other Reiki Healing sessions on my online shop and also for the one on ones here for Windhoek people, I will donate for all other Treatments bought and booked 50 % to the Marianne Keil Fund.

Want to do something special, a good deed for others and something special for yourself at the same time? Please buy and book a session with me now, as I only have limited appointments per week available.

Hurry up. Be special all around…..
