3 years-ish from blank, white book to this:
I started 6 journals at one time almost 3 years ago & the Red one is finished first.
Inside, front cover:
“So go on and cry me a river
Don’t say this will haunt you forever
It never did, it never will”
– Alter Bridge
“I’ve got a hole in me now
Yeah, I got a scar I can talk about.”
– Matchbox Twenty
“The youth can walk faster, but it is the elder that knows the road.”
– African proverb
4th page: I will never forget the Hot & Juicy Sauce.
“Write hard and clear about what hurts.”
– Earnest Hemmingway
“It takes a long time to become young.”
When I upgraded my paints, I was in awe of the colors and my first attempt at using glazing fluid
“But everyone you know, is trying to smooth it over
Everyone needs a floor they can fall through”
Just words I saw somewhere…
“I think I want to paint you
And then I want to hang you
In my bedroom over my head”
– Rob Thomas
“If you want more love, why don’t you say so.”
– John Mayer
I’ve shown this page here before, and it still cracks me up…
This is all I have to say about that.
Some days, Pinterest is about as deep as I can handle…
This is a repeat as well, but I show every page when I finish a journal.
Ya’ll might note that there are no words on this spread.
It doesn’t need any. I love this page…
“Words, they’ll try to shake you, don’t let them break you or stop your world from turning. When words keep you from feeling good, use them as firewood, and let ’em burn.”
“You wreck me, Baby”
– Tom Petty
“The center of your heart is where life begins; the most beautiful place on earth.”
Page 20: About my friends!
About that loser that tried to leave me in the mountains…
Ok…about his dog…
“What we learned here is love tastes bitter when it’s gone.
– Matchbox Twenty
“Arrange whatever pieces come your way.”
– Virginia Woolf
Page 24: More Pinterest
“Some words. The way they look at you.”
“Love with every stranger; the stranger the better.”
“He’s yelling about my tattoos. We all live with the scars we choose. They may hurt like hell but they all make us stronger.”
“Let go of the judge within and be surrounded by positive, supportive people. Be gentle on yourself and others. Give. Never hold back.
– Nancy Davis Bilbro
“I know you’ll never love me but maybe you’ll stay for a while.”
– Henry Rollins
Inside, back cover:
The book cover is sealed down as it is so old it was crumbly.
This was fun!
Now there’s more time to work on the other 5 Art Journals:
