Dream it, Draw it, Do it!

I’d like to give you an insight in a new journal that I started a couple of weeks ago. I feel that if I draw my dreams I start living them and that’s why I love art-journaling so much. Just draw it ūüôā All right, easier said than done so as less is more I’ve been using less colours and more black ink for these drawings, and guess what?! ¬†It makes things way less complicated; less options mean less thinking for me and I like the effect it has.




Have you ever experienced a case of LESS IS MORE when you were creating something? I’d love to hear from you! Please leave a comment below!

P.S. In case you want to know; this is a small journal from Talens, Art creations; 12cm x 12cm and it costs 2,50 euro. I bought it in San Sebasti√°n (Spain) but I’ve seen it in art shops in the Netherlands too. I’ve used an uni-ball micro pen and a micron 01 pen en a mini van gogh watercolour set.

    Mooi Lau, de uitvoering vraagt misschien om een sterker contrast. Zo vind ik het geel in de eerste krachtiger dan het groen in de tekeningen. Maar verder prachtig hoor, ik doe het je niet na!
