Draw your future

Most of us have heard about the book Secret which talks about how by applying laws of attraction we can attract all that we want in life and help in manifesting our dreams and aspirations. A secret to lead a happy and successful life.

And this is something which we have been doing since our childhood just that we never knew the theory behind it until few years ago when Rhonda Bryne opened up this whole new world of possibilities for human being just by visualizing and thinking positive about everything that we have dreamed for.

Personally sometimes when i look back i guess few of the incidents in my life that had happened were in someway related to this theory. Few good ones and few bad ones. Bad ones cause yeah just like how one can attract positive vibes one can even attract negativity too. I didn’t know back then about this and some serious negative thinking that i did unknowingly came out true. (People like me learn from mistakes 🙂 😛 )

Well well well, this post is not about Secret but about one of my fav personalities Patti Dobrowolski. She is an international keynote speaker, comic performer and also the founder of Up Your Creative Genius, a consulting firm that uses visuals and creative processes to help companies and individuals around the world accelerate growth and change. Known for her high energy, quick wit and commitment to helping people and businesses achieve their goals, she lives in the rain forest of Seattle, Washington with her partner Julie, 3 dogs and 3 chickens.

So here i am sharing this video of hers from one of my fav Ted TalksVision boards, making to do lists, drawing my future has somehow affected me positively in the last one year 😀 So go ahead and watch the video and am sure by the time you finish it you would be excited to pick up a pen and a paper and DRAW YOUR FUTURE

P.S: People who love Writing Challenges check out the A to Z Challenge 2016. This would be my first time and really excited about it even more cause I am also a part of John Holton’s Team. Check out their site and fb page for further details.

#Zentangle – Post 01

Hello Potpourriers (is that even a word :)) How have you all been doing??

I am so not liking that i didn’t publish even a single post since i reached a +100 followers…how could i be so mean??? Hmmm well.. i am not i so love all my followers for their awesomeness!!. 

ZENTANGLE – This was something i came across accidentally on YouTube while looking out for some art tools. I have seen such a kind of art a lot many times but didn’t know it had its own name and fan following. So what exactly it is ?? Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns. It is a fascinating new art form that is fun and relaxing. It increases focus and creativity (i totally agree to that point). It’s like an advanced version of Mehendi designing or Mandala art form (not aware of its international names)

And so i started doing some research on it, beginners, types etc and then started learning them. In no time i realized how addicted i became to this. I would come back home from work, make myself a glass of tea and start learning the basic patterns and then try out some designs. I even ended up buying special Sakura Micro Pens for doing Zentangle. So introducing some of the Zentangle work i have done in the last ten days instead of blogging. Hope you all enjoy and give your honest opinion about it.

Image 02 – First Zentangle – This was the first one i tried. It was a random patterning design where in you draw many repetitive patterns to just form an overall abstract image. This does have few flaws but then i love it cause this was my first hand experience to draw Zentangles.

Image 03 – The Lady I started searching for designs that use Zentangle patterns and i mostly found images of girls. So i decided to use my beginners lessons to start doing a different design – a gal and a peacock. I never imagined it would turn out so beautifully.I like the peacock more 😛

Image 04 – The Gift – I started sharing my art with my close friends and one of them happen to request me to try this patterning on alphabets and since his birthday was approaching i thought of gifting him a Monogram of his name  – “R”. I am yet to frame it but this ones for now. I am gonna do one for my home also very soon for the alphabet S

Image 05 – The BRIDE – I love this one so much. I avoided to many patterns and kept it very basic and simple. I wanted to try on some colors over the patterns but the moment i finished coloring the red bow i thought my picture was completed.I am gonna frame this one and hang it on my wall. This is also currently my mobile wallpaper  🙂 🙂

P.S – This was my contribution in the #inktober month. Though it’s a thirty-day thing i thought i could customize it accordingly. 😛
