Yellow Journal

Posted on Updated on

Another one finished!

Like the Red journal, I started this nearly 3 years ago. It started its life as a blank, white-paged book but now…

Front cover:

“I wanna know where does love go to die…”

– P!nk

“You have to leak sometimes or you will explode.”

– Anjo. (my best friend)

This spread commemorates the day I took Nephew the 2nd to the annual Pirate Festival in Vallejo on Father’s day weekend.

Look like a mermaid, swear like a sailor.

“It’s such a waste to grow up lonely”

– John Mayer

When the game is over, the king and the pawn go in the same box

Some things I find on Pinterest but I don’t know who created it. I don’t know who wrote/said this.

“I am not afraid, I was born to do this.”

– Joan of Arc

“Whoever said that love was sweet drank a little too much whiskey baby.”

– P!nk

“Scar tissue that I wish you saw.”

– Red Hot Chili Peppers

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

– Maya Angelou

I’ve posted this before, but when one gets the opportunity to quote Wayne Campbell…

“In another life, darling, I’d do anything to be with you.”

– James Blunt

I’d heard about using other fibers in one’s art. This is my attempt at incorporating a used dryer sheet. Meh.

Don’t worry if you make waves simply by being yourself. The moon does it all the time.

– Pinterest

“You’re not crazy for leaving, just crazy for staying so long.”

– Daughtry

“I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
‘Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
What line do we stand upon, ’cause from here it looks the same
And only scars remain”
-Ed Sheeran

You tried to drown my heart even after you had seen me swim.

Let your freak flag fly

“My heart is lost; the beasts have eaten it.”

-Charles Baudelaire

“I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story. I will.”

– Amy Schumer

I’ve been hurt so bad and I still love so hard. I admire my heart for that.

– Pinterest

“Some women fear the fire. Some women simply become it.”

– R. H. Sin

I’m going to start using my EXTENSIVE collection of magazine clippings in my art more…

“If a girl wants to be a legend, she should just go ahead and be one.”
– Calamity Jane

I have traveled through madness to find me.

Word.

Truth:

From an earlier story…

“I’m tired of being alone…so hurry up and get here.”

– John Mayer

“Happiness ain’t prison but there’s freedom in a broken heart.”

– Miranda Lambert

“I’ll learn masonry, carve stone,
plant a garden of my own
and make bliss among these ruins.”
– Effy Wild

You remember that:

“My perfect rock bottom, my beautiful trauma.”

– P!nk

“And now you only wanna make it out alive.”

-Rob Thomas

Coloring sheets go in here when they end up being supercool:

“If you believe in nothing else
Just keep believing in yourself
There will be times of trouble
It’s gonna hurt like hell
This much I know all ends well
It all ends well”
– Alter Bridge

“I’m broken in the prime of my life
So embrace it and leave me to stray.”
– Imagine Dragons

Pinterest:

Smokey was my “divorce kitten”…ya know…like, “Your parents are divorcing. Here’s a kitten.”

Horatio has already been introduced…

Back cover:

Right! So there are 4 more large books I’m working on…

I’ve set up my Journal 52 (prompts from 2017, but now MY 2019), so now I have to catch up for the first 7 weeks of the year…

I wonder what else I will do next?
