Mind map

Journal 52: when I grow up…

Well I am already pretty much grown up, so I decided I am going to make a mind map that reflects my present life, the things that I try to concentrate on, the things that I would like to do, the things that I would like to grow in:

mind map

The two most important parts of my life, upper: all about art and creation, lower: my private life, my family and my friends of course (sorry guys were running out of space).

Acrylics with markers.

Acrylics with markers and altered piece.

I think that says it all. I am linking this post to Inspire me Monday and to One little word challenge Calm, because if I have the right balance in my life I feel calm

About lerusho

I am obsessed with experimenting, using my fantasy and creating new and unique visions. The challenges are endless and that gives me real inspiration.

    I am a new follower and WOW just love these pages. I may have to use your inspiration to find my important priorities these days. I have grown up physically but fighting the mental side.

  2. Wonderful page. Is that a page or a cover? It looked like a one of those string closure ‘buttons’ on the left, but on closer examination it appears to be stacked washers. Very cool. Very, very cool, actually 🙂 Is the face a stencil? It appears that way, but not one that I’ve seen before. Do you create stencils yourself? Also love the puffy ‘paint’ below her. I have all of the Marvy Liquid Appliques and this looks somewhat like those.

      Thank you Patricia! It is a page not a cover, and you are right, that ‘button’ is stacked washers, I buy them in the hardware store and I alter them home. The hardware store owner looked strange at me at first time, but now he’s used to me even became helpful… the face is a stamp, even though I make my own stamps and stencils this one is from Stampendous and it’s called Glance. And those puffy paint lines are coming from a Marabu paint fine liner, it’s refillable so I love them and I can mix my own color combinations 😉
