Creative Nights

I have been loitering among various art journalling and creativity-inspiring blogs lately (linked at the bottom of this post), and it has really helped get my creativity flowing. It’s not that I haven’t been able to create things using various mediums – I’ve just been a bit blocked in terms of themes, or subject matter.

I haven’t been blogging much lately because of the sheer amount of paint, gesso, journals, glue, needle & thread, crayons, pencils, etc that have been cluttering my life. I’ve been creating works in my art journal from various meditations, visual & reflective exercises, and passages from books I’ve been reading.

I may post some pictures of the art that has been occupying my time recently, with the link to my FB page 🙂
