Art is one of my favorites it involves a lot of different art. Photography, Painting, Rock Painting etc. just to name a few. Art brings out the creative side of me. It helps me with depression and all of my anxieties. Not only does are have benefits but it helps you create something beautiful. Some people have an eye for design but even if your not good at art at least try your best. You will be surprised on what you created. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that your art is horrible or ugly or anything like that. Anyone can create something beautiful.
I have several family members that have done different types of art. I like to paint scrapbook draw and etc. I guess I get my creativity from my grandma she loved to paint especially statues. As for my great grandma she used to work with ceramics and paint them. My mom does more of interior design along with painting. She also makes diaper cakes and fruit tables. There are so many different types of art. I will list a few.
This is one of my photography pictures. I used to live in the country and my family had some wood burning the previous day. I decided to go on a nature walk on the acres that we had. This is one my favorites , I love the darkness on this picture, black is one of my favorite colors. I really love taking pictures of textures. Also I love taking pictures of nature shots. You never know what you run into because there is beauty in everything. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You can create anything and turn it into something beautiful. My advice to you is if your a photographer or thinking about doing photography take your camera everywhere because you never know what you will run into. Keep taking pictures of different things everyday.
Photography has helped me cope through some of my toughest times. It helped me through my depression and at the same time it helped me create something beautiful. There was a time i had did a photo shoot of about fifteen people. It was my first big photo shoot of that many people. I was really nervous right before the photo shoot. The moment I got behind the camera my anxiety went away. I focused on my models and just started shooting and that’s the only place where I wanted to be.
Here are a few pages from my art Journal. The thing that I like about my art Journal is that you can make it any way that you want. Its your own creation so you make it your own. My art journal I write very little and I put more artsy stuff. This art Journal is all about me, Its the things that make it me. I never knew I was creative until I saw the outcome of it. Working on my art Journal is art therapy for me. It helps me with my emotional healing.
There are times when I don’t want to talk and I’m keeping things bottled up inside, well this helps take everything out on art. Its like I am in a whole new world. I love the feeling that I get. It makes me feel calm like as if my thoughts were all wiped out and I started new. If I was angry its like if nothing happened. Its like if I have left the darkness and came into the light.
I don’t own the rights to this photo, I haven’t completed a scrapbook yet. This is what a scrapbook looks like. It basically is like a photo album with a bunch of decorative pages. You can buy all the scrapbooking stuff at either hobby lobby or michaels craft store. There is so much you can do with it. The first thing is to choose what kind of scrapbook you are going to work on.
I would choose to make one for my boyfriend because he has always been there for me. So then I would get some photos printed out. I usually get my photos printed at Walgreens because they always send me discounts on my prints in my email. So if you haven’t already sign up at their website. Now just be creative add glitter stickers embellishments and etc. You should use your imagination and be creative and have fun. There is no right or wrong answer. You are the artist and this is your project, just do your best and have fun.
I just love painting its my absolute favorite of all the artsy things to do. I just love the smell of the paint. I love all the bright colors. My favorite paints to use is acrylic. I don’t use anything else. I try to buy the cheapest brushes as for right now, later on I will buy something more expensive. The painting above is absolutely beautiful, no I did not create it. Other artists give me motivation so I can create my own. I love looking at other artists artistic work. I always make sure I stock up on paints brushes and canvases because I never know when I am going to create something amazing.
