Get Messy: An Art Journal Challenge 04

Happy Thursday! Time for a peak into my art journal, which is kind of all over the place this week, but in a good way… like me.

I’ve got this really cool image on the left, with an elaborate rainbow costume, that I wrote “stay true” on top of. And on the right I’ve got a snail mail theme going, demonstrating just how much I love mail art and letter writing.

I used some canceled vintage postage, old school rubber stamps, and one of the custom address stickers I used for the Ex Postal Facto event earlier this year. And I wrote in this multi-colored pencil that kind of rocks my world.

On the left I have excerpts from my personal manifesto, The Uncustomary Collective. It was cool to read through these words I wrote more than a year ago, when I was completely focused on street art. I found that the concepts can completely apply to my new path in life, though.

And on the right I went with a pink, blue, and yellow theme, and included a instant photo of a banner I have on my studio wall. Spread Love, you guys.

I also wrote some of the things that made me happy this week in my art journal. I have separate Happy Journal that I write in every night, but it was kind of cool to decorate the page a bit, instead of just writing plain words. I also included an instant photo of my new curtains which are making me so happy.

And on the right are some lyrics from one of my favorite songs right now, “Into The Wild” by LP. It’s a magical arrangement of acoustics, and I recommend it.
