my ART Journal - Pocket of Mistake

Hello, I usually have my freedom once my daughter goes to sleep or when she is at school. However my morning is always busy doing things around the house, running errand or browsing some interesting things on the internet. That is why my hobby come to life when everything is quite and I am alone with all the time I have.

Tonight I crafted this. I don't know why I call it Bohemian Queen, it is just spark like that. It is quite an easy piece to do. Just a background done with ink spray, acrylic and some stencils as well as stamps. Then I prepare some nice collage, print it, cut it out and paste it to my journal.

When it is almost done, I make a mistake well a big mistake actually. It is quite hard to recover it as It takes almost a big space just next to my girl. I have no other choice but to cover it with something. It is very late and I start to be sleepy. I grab the next thing around me and paste it. Voila ... a pocket of Mistake I call it.

It is not fantastic, my recovery sounds more into emergency act instead of a work well done :-) To pick up my self from the mood swing I write the letter for me .... This will be an affirmation for me, why I should be able to allow mistake in my life. Don't get me wrong, I had done many many countless mistakes in my life ... what I am today is the result of the hard work I had put in to recover all those mistakes. Therefore accepting mistakes in my life and move on, is a part of my life ritual.

And I made a little video for this journal, some kind of another creative exploration, I hope you enjoy my video. 

and lastly as usual my final tweak using my digital touch up on this hand draw work, just to give my self a little bit push. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for reading my blog and a very good night for all those from Asia.
