Happy new year everyone. After gracefully living the rough yet beautiful year 2015, I'm stepping into 2016 with plans of creating more and living more. Create was my word for 2015 and I think I did justice with it and fell in love with this word, still carrying this love with me in 2016. So for the sake of creating more art and wrecking more journals, I'm vvv happy to announce that me & one of my very good creative friend Hawwa are bringing y'all a creative thing, #OhJournalEtc
#OhJournalEtc is a creative art journalling prompts project. In collaboration with Hawwa, each month we are going to post four art journalling prompts on our blogs, and each week we are going to complete one of those ourselves and share them on our instagram accounts (with a monthly wrap-up post for each of the four prompts and our own art on our blogs, new prompts for next month will be announced in the wrap up post). We want to make art and inspire and we want you to do the same, so we're inviting you to join us. You can complete as many pages as you want based on the prompts we post and share them with hashtag #ohjournaletc on instagram for everyone to see your art.
The name comes from our instagram handles. Ohareeba & hawwaetc and we both do art journalling so we're mixing our love for creating art together.
The four prompts for the month of January are:
For the first week, the prompt is 2016. Turn your vision and imagination and hopes for 2016 into art and make your art journal even more glorious.
Paint and draw with the feel and use of blue color. Use albums and quotes that make you feel the blues, ADD TROYE SIVAN'S BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN YOUR JOURNAL IF YOU LOVE HIM. The winter blues can make a lot of good art journal pages too.
Keep your culture close and religion closer, this is how I live my life. Show off your culture with some art. We'd love to see what your traditions and cultural art look like.
4. "Art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something." (Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell)
THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL QUOTE EVER, THX RAINBOW. Make art on art and be art.
You don't have to make perfect perfect perfect journal pages, you just have to pour your imagination on your art journal. We only want to preach art, make it and inspire everyone to do so too. I hope you'll join & create something beautiful with us. Because remember, art isn't supposed to look nice; it's suppose to make you feel something. SO COME JOIN US AND MAKE ART & SHARE IT TO THE WORLD & MAKE IT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.
