this is by FAR the most popular Revlie Art Journal ordered to date. is it because there is a sweet swear-word on the cover :P?
"today i shall not give a fuck". or maybe it's the compete sentiment around it....
whatever it is, it is my favorite also. because i made the original for one of my sweet friends who was very sick at the time. she's up & running again luckely and knowing that my drawing brought a smile to her face, keeps me wanting make more designs <3.
you can get this cute as fuck art journal in my Etsyshopor if you are Dutch or Belgian, shop in my other shop.
now go on. there's still a lot of non fucks to be given for today <3.
i seriously love ICY weather. guess i am "cryophilic" -> preferring or thriving at low temperatures". it's no secret i can do absolute NOTHING when the temperature is above 25 degrees (celcius). i seriously hate hot weather. my brain just doesn't function anymore, so does my body. i can only sit, sweat and be irritated. yes. charming huh?! so the weather these days here have been so good to me. cold, sunny, fresh and icy. although my muscles hurt more than ever, i do FEEL better with these temperatures.
it's like, you really have to go through darkness to appreciate the light so much. even though life can be such a bitch, there will always be light in unexpected places. find those places. find that light.
are you artjournaling everyday already? why not? give it a go!
"GROW through what you go through". and oh yes, every obstacle you have to overcome, every person that pushes your buttons like BIG TIME, every situation that get's your heart racing, you have to deal with and you GROW so much by going through ordeals.
guess i'm just simply addicted to drawing girls, watercolors & doodling flowers. you're welcome 😜💗
"OWL" always love you :) it's ok to not love every single page or painting you create. sometimes they turn up amazing. sometimes they are amazingly beautiful IN YOUR MIND and do not resemble the image you have of that in real life. it's just the way it is. MOVE ON. don't feel "see, i'm a bad artist". because you are not. not every piece of art can be a masterpiece of art. sometimes you just have to give yourself permission to play and don't be so hard on yourself. nobody needs perfection. seriously. just GO AND PLAY.
yellow, i simply scribbled down what things i thought of when i said "yellow!". * spongebob (yes i know :O) * my favorite crochethook * the happy color * the minions! * the wall of my favorite studio (in our old home) * ice cream * Sanne's favorite color! * the color of the moon * banana's! (said in the voice of the minions!) * little chicks * the sun * the stars * positivity * yellow masking tape :)
so don't get trapped in the "i need to think of something really really good for every single prompt". no. you simply don't. just CREATE something :)
SMILE "Being happy is the greatest form of succes"
that is so true for me! and i notice if that is on my mind when i start my day, everything else seems to fall in place. just remember that you do have control about how you want to feel and act like it!
this page was kinda hard to photograph. in real life it's more gorgeous :). used just watercolors & a white posca pen.
"if you are feeling blue, try painting yourself a different color"
if you are feeling blue, it really helps to sometimes think of happy colors. happy situations. things you are thankful for. if you are thankful and grateful you don't have to feel blue. i'm not saying that feeling blue is a bad thing or you should never feel that way. but if you are struggling, you might be surprised looking at bright colorful art journal pages will make you feel better. i'm just saying what's working for me. COLOR. <3.
