Lately I have been inspired about popular things.. and normal things that for me can be so common.. but looking in a different perspective they are awesome! How we get used to amazing things of our quotidian life's!
I went to a street market that happens once a week at my street and thought about making pictures of the fruits fair... the vision of the fair from above too make have some ideas of paintings....
Body Art is something Ive always liked and working with henna is one of my favorite body painting styles... But well Ive just started again this year, to try it on myself again. I havent done this for a while, and yesterday it was just snapping in my mind: make a henna tattoo, make a henna tattoo... its not finished yet. but here r some pics of my hand.
All u need for making Henna Art, is henna powder +water, a little bit of a sugar mixture and u can put some lemon into it.. mixing it all together and U can start to paint on urself. Im painting with a tiny brush for watercolours :D so u dont need any expensive stuffs, just a bit creativity.. and patience.. it has to stay for some hours (2h-6h) so it will remain for some weeks (depends as well how much ur taking a shower and washing ur hands ;) )...
make a henna day, its always relaxing and creative.. as soon as I make new henna tattoo I will post it.. it was a spontaneous idea.. :D
We r inspired by almost everything, but my generation is mostly inspired by movies or music. It is just common, because its an important topic of the 21th century. I love to watch movies, it doesnt matter if its old like "Casablanca" or some new movies, like "Confession of a Shopaholic". I just enjoy movies from all over the world, but I must say, my favorite movies r french!
Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain ("The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain") is one of these. Every 2 months Im making an Amélie-Day.
And this is my TO-DO-List on one of those Amélie-days:
write a (handwritten) letter
solve a riddle
drink Red wine and eat soft cheese(yummiii)
make a masked passport picture
throw stones into a river
write a poem
eat jelly strawberries from ur fingers (ah u know ;))
