Get Messy Art Journal

Hello, lovelies. Happy Thursday! It’s time to check into my art journal. Feeling pretty bright and crazy this week, so my pages are reflecting it.

I keep a quote journal. I document famous things writers have said, powerful lyrics, and hilarious conversations. I’m also not above writing down things that I say myself. The Wes Anderson rainbow color palette is something I said a few months ago and I re-read it this week. Probably the best thing about keeping a quote journal is being able to go back through it.

Another entry in my quote journal was a text conversation between Janice and myself. I texted her “I’m so tired I’m drunk”, and she responded back immediately with “Turn it into chaos”. I fell in love with those words instantly.

I felt like this image with all the business represented chaos well.
