Just a background


On my workdesk this Wednesday is this background that is a part of my "Inspired by famous paintings" series. You'll need to come back on Friday to see the whole thing. I'll give you a hint though. It's time for some Dali. :)

Connie over at Dirty Footprints Studio is making us tell our journaling secrets. :) So here we go! I don't like journaling. :) As long as I can remember I was afraid that someone is going to read my thoughts. That's why I censure myself every time I try to write something personal in a journal. That actually sucks big time cause I'm not letting my soul speak.

And some time ago I realized my journaling doesn't have to be seen. What I do is I write my thoughts down. It might be something that is bothering me or just some everyday stuff. Then I paint over it. Completely. That way I let my soul speak without fear of being read by someone. :) My heart is lighter because of it and the art part of art journaling somehow comes easier because it's no longer burdened by thoughts.

Now, go check on WOYWW to snoop around other people's desks. :) And if you want to win 25$ certificate to Skybluepink go check out this post to see where you need to go and what you need to do. :) Wow! I'm full of links today. :))

  8. That's interesting - a bit like writing a letter and throwing it in the bin, I suppose. I sometimes type a letter to someone in Word and hide it on my laptop for a couple of days before deleting it! :P

  12. No se veselim tega Dalija bom prišla nazaj na obisk....pisanje misli v dnevnik - ne vem, če te res skrbi, da jih bo kdo prebral mogoče je res boljše da jih skriješ, ampak ali ni bistvo tega da pišeš - rišeš "art" dnevnik da skozi sliko poveš svoje misli " naglas"

  17. Interesting desk! I don't journal either for the same reason. I also have books and books of scrapping etc that I wonder if people 'know' me and think badly when they see them. The older I get the less I care but I think that is why I don't journal. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #43

  28. Great post - look forward to seeing the drippy clock! How often do you end up covering journalling then? How fascinating!

  29. Hi Natasha, I'm sure you are not alone in being reticent in you journalling - I know I've always been, ever since my kid brothers took to reading my teenage diary. However, covering it up sounds a good idea. Love Dali's surrealist and bizarre style so had a peek at your next post - yep, you've got his style alright :) Elizabeth x #72
