Lately I' ve been experiencing a strong and permanent urge to create. I feel compelled to do something creative everyday, whether it' s making something from scratch with my hands, playing with make up, writing, painting... I am trying to committ and find at least a moment everyday I can devote to art in any form. What you see in these pictures is what happens if you leave me with a free day, some brushes, lots of make-up and false eyelashes. You can click on the pictures to see their larger versions.

I felt like trying to paint on my face this creative spark that has been blessing me lately. I tried to give shape and colour to this inner life and dance, so vivid and magnetic, I just surrendered to that part of myself who' s always wild, alive and free, I just let her move the brush and pick the colours and the textures. I really loved the final result and I loved taking all the make-up off as a reminder that a spark is an ephemeral thing to be nurtured and kept alive every day with love and committment.

Here are some things you can do to keep being creative:
  • Play with make-up, of course.
  • Paint with and on whatever you have at home.
  • Get a book of mandala shapes to colour.
  • Create a new recipe with whatever lies in your fridge.
  • Take a tour on Pinterest to get inspired.
  • Schedule your days so you have at least a moment every day you can devote to some creative project.
  • Watch some DIY videos on You Tube.
  • Decorate any item with your favourite nail polish.
  • Pick a nice exhibition to visit during the weekend.
  • Find a nice e-course to learn something new.

Love the Mad Hatter's eyebrows! XD
I like (and already do) all of your bullets in your creativity list... basically anything can inspire creativity, shredding paper too (let's unleash our inner cats, everybody!), I mean, creativity is everywhere to be found :)
