I spent all morning and a little of this afternoon totally engrossed in drawing this mandala. Normally it'll take me a couple of days to finish one but I just couldn't seem to stop until I finished! Its actual size is 18cm in diameter.
Materials used: Pens - Berol fine line, staedtler black triplus colour, Tartan pink permanent & Marvy LePlume no.64 plum. I attached some acrylic gems using Golden gel medium. It was drawn onto heavy white card.
Also this morning, with the Creative Every Day theme of 'Air' in mind, I wrote this whimsical Haiku:
Bitter air biting
Asserting icy power
Wool scarf rescues me!
I played with this final line also coming up with even sillier versions like 'Saved by Super-Wool' and such like. I regularly use this 5-7-5 haiku format to record thoughts, moments and feelings. I'm obviously not sticking to strict Haiku rules but I find this short poetry a great way to focus on the present moment. My moleskine notebook is full of questionable haiku. Another method I use to focus on the now is taking photos. On a daily basis I like to write in my journal; an invaluable place for me to spill all my crazy thoughts.
How do you like to record moments, thoughts and feelings? What about when you're in a rush or on the move?
