Art Journal 2014. 15

"Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find"
~from the song Unwritten. Natasha Bedingfield

Estas semanas la inspiración no ha estado en su periodo de máxima creación, tal vez la aparente calma que estoy viviendo sea la causa. A excepción de la falta de ideas, esta tranquilidad no me molesta, a veces es bueno no tener la vida y el corazón en constante alboroto :)

Para mi página de Art Journal de la semana me inspire en algunas frases de la canción que me gusta mucho:


Para el fondo decidí probar las tintas distress (spiced marmalade y mustard seed) directamente sobre el papel, sin utilizar gesso...  Lo bonito de estas tintas es la facilidad con que se mezclan y permiten hacer degradados.  Los pájaros y la frase fueron cortados con la cameo en papel canson y pintados igualmente con distress (shaded lilac y picked raspberry)


Para finalizar coloque washi tape y algunas de mis frases favoritas de la canción.


Y para que la escuchen completa (y si quieren canten a todo pulmón como lo hago yo cada vez que la oigo), aquí les dejo el video y la letra de la canción:  Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield


I am unwritten
Can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning
The pen's in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you, only you can let it in
No one else, no one else can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

I break tradition
Sometimes my tries are outside the lines
We've been conditioned
To not make mistakes, but I can't live that way, no

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you, only you can let it in
No one else, no one else can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you, only you can let it in
No one else, no one else can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you, only you can let it in
No one else, no one else can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
