🌧 „it‘s a bad day, not a bad life“ 🌦 when was your last „bad“ day, and why? 🙁
Finally I started with Wanderlust lessons and finished my first spread about relationships. It took me a while, because of …. Well... life happened. I forgot that the combination of running a family, running a business and having to deal with chronic disease (ulcerative colitis) and struggling with planning/executive functions due to adhd is a bit of a challenge (ugh… understatement!) Oh… and yes, I was procrastinating… because of fear that I’m not good enough at art making. Afraid that I’m not a real artist (ooh, there I said it out loud, scary!) ⠀
I asked myself: why do I art journal in the first place? To express myself, to give expression to ALL of my thoughts & feelings. To get them out on paper, to organize and control the chaos in my head. To better understand life. To rediscover who I am. To heal my inner child. ⠀
All with the same reason: to still the mind, find inner peace and be safe with BEing myself. ⠀
So what did I need to get started? I had to let go of the outcome and focus on the process of creating and learning who I am, what the world is about and (re)discover the reason why I’m on earth. What my bigger mission is. ⠀
I also had to allow myself to use the lesson as a free guideline or firestarter to get to work in my journal and follow my own timing. ⠀
Now I’m on a roll.. 😉 This spread is about relationships I treasure the most ♥️

When I sketch digitally, I always feel like I’m betraying my art journal. But it’s so much more convenient to sketch on the iPad at the moment because I can do that in my bed. After studying I just don’t want to continue sitting on my desk to draw. 🙈
Good morning, night sketchbook I'm making some sketches like I draw what I'm thinking with some new tools and ideas but it's mostly intuitive drawing

Hi there! 🙋🏻♀️ I have a fun art journal page to share today; or rather the start of one. 😉 I’m working in the large journal from @dinawakley and chose one of the white pages. First, I added a layer of Gess-OH from @janedavenport . Then I went straight to paper with some Distressed Oxide inks from @tim_holtz . I just love the texture created 💜I then added stenciling with some stencils from Dina Wakley. I used paints from @finnabair_studio and Dina Wakley. I’ll be coming back to add some focal points later. Thanks for checking it out! Hope you have a wonderful day! Happy crafting!! 😊💜🎨💌

The write up says-
"... I'll never forget that this conversation occurred between us and there are easy ways to bring back summer in the snowstorm.
What I forgot to earmark in that promise was that, ice and apathy have ways of instantly repealing all truces and resolutions signed in sunnier moments."
Call me by your name by Andrè Aciman (2007)
So much has been going these past few weeks and life seems a little too difficult to just wade in. This few lines seemed fitting with these colours and these colours seemed to speak about things I don't have words for.

a cheetah print kinda day 🐆 ps almost every picture + scrap you see here are part of my patreon tiers! I’m hoping to launch it early this week. I have pages and pages of pictures, drawings, scrap papers, vintage book pages, etc! It’s a dream for journalers (myself included) ☁️
I am currently relearning Japanese and truly love the artistry of writing the characters. This little cat made its way onto one of my art journal pages, surrounded by its hiragana translation, ねこ. #artoftheday#artjournalpages#cat#neko https://ift.tt/377hkuq pic.twitter.com/yTYIbTwAPZ
My completed or almost completed journals for 2019. 23 in total, some large and thick and some pocket-sized. This was the year of depth. The year of searching and heritage and connection to myself. I’m late with my tally but I find this reflection important in order to be kinder to myself and to show the inner critic objective truths.
“Unearthed fragments” As I clean my studio, I find myself struggling not to just sit with this beauty and visit with it again and again. It’s all about the layers and details. Who needs a clean studio. Lol ❤️
