I made this weeks pages in a crazy flurry. Sometimes I'm just hit with ideas and inspiration and need to get it all out.
This is why I work in multiple journals at once!
- acrylic & collage
Hello and welcome to the inside of my mind.
Fated to pretend
- collage & pen
This song is one my mum always says reminds her of me (apart from the bit about heroin)
I like the thought of being fated to pretend.... and play..... and create!
How your brain works
This was a comment that Vanessa left on my last get messy post. It's also something that is said to me quite frequently (I have a weird brain, an interesting view on things etc) It's a comment that always leaves me happy and feeling unique and individual. I cut the letters out from magazine as a nod to Vanessa's style.
- ink & collage
This song by Beyonce has been in head for weeks now. I think this particular line really strikes a chord with me as well. When I started creating for myself again, through get messy, I felt like I had found myself. I felt alive and true. I think it's a great quote to remember that to be your best self - you have to treat yourself to the things that bring you joy - or else you'll loose it all
Pieces of Me
- collage & acrylic
Yes, I referenced Ashlee Simpson! Anyone else a fan of her reality TV show? No? I was stuck for some reason this week on the theme of yourself as an entity. After putting this page together I also felt it went well with the quote "she loved mysterious so much, she became one"
- collage & felt tip
When I am art journalling I either sit in perfect, blissful silence or watch trash TV. When I creating this week, I was watching pretty little liars and this quote is from a song featured on the show. I like documenting intense, dark feelings, even though they aren't necessarily my own.
I think that what humans are capable of is fascinating.
This has been my favourite week of the season of words so far, I hoped you enjoyed looking at all my pages (!) and make sure to check out the other creatives in the group via the get messy blog!
