Trust your rebel heart. @lindsalita quoted this song lyric during the last #getmessyhangout and I knew it needed to be recreated. .

Check yourself, your privilege is showing. Nothing makes me angrier than people who shut down dialogue by immediately claiming offense rather than taking the time to read what was written. It also angers me when people claim offense about something which is based in fact.

Your belief system is just as valid as mine. And mine happens to be equal rights, love and social justice. Every act is a political one; where we choose to spend our money has a direct impact and I will not stop pointing this out just because my words hit too close to home and caused you discomfort. 
Thank you to the @official_screamales for letting me cut up your poster

I have had this tiny Kolo book for years and didnt know what to do with it, but today I had the aha moment that it would be perfect for this week's #inchiechallenge2019 from #mindfulartstudio and @amymaricle

Have you tried the 4-7-8 breath method? Apparently it’s helpful for stress and falling asleep. (Inhale for count of 4, hold your breath for 7, exhale for 8). I’m going to try it today. To read more, google “ 4 7 8 breathing exercise”.⁣

To me art journaling is like taking a photo... it’s a way to capture a moment. It can be a memory, an emotion or a creative process. It’s a way to document where I am and where I am going. Why do you art journal? .

For the Get Messy Season of Documenting. My brain is made of lyrics! I ramble a bit about that on the left page, then braindump some lyrics on the right. Gesso, fountain pen ink, waterbrush, water spritzer, stencils, Sharpie, Pilot MultiBall pen.

Continuing to dive into the #gmseasonofdocumenting. I've gone with documenting some of the big questions and contradictions that are part of my experience. Anxiety (and depression) have been part of my story, and high level anxiety has been making an unwelcome come back this past year, with one too many panic attacks. One of the practices that's has always helped me is gratitude. Unrelenting gratitude, for the smallest things, to the biggest things. When I feel like anxiety is choking me , I run gratitude lists in my head.

A quick spread at 30,000 feet this morning for the #brushmagazineaugustchallenge for "play". We were up at 3:30 am to make our flight, so this is all I can muster:)

I thought I had gotten away with not catching the cold going around my family, but unfortunately I’m sick home coughing and achey. But I’m watching watercolour example videos and painting between the coughing. #gmseasonofdocumenting #watercolours #artjournal

Started my day in the hotel on the @getmessyartjournal art hangout led by @artandsoulcindy. Such a great group of ladies! We were documenting belonging and I had to Mcgyver the situation with what I had with me including a run to the front desk in my pajamas to borrow tape! #gmseasonofdocumenting

True or false: there are no mistakes?!

Happy little accidents?
Learning moments?
Building blocks?
Nope, it’s a mistake?

For the #gmseasonofdocumenting , I’ve given myself the extra challenge of creating one spread a week documenting the week before. I set up some guidelines for myself to help:
1. An image from the week
2.A sentence; said, read or heard
3.A scrap collected from the week
4.A max of 5 colours
We were visiting the cottage last week, so this spread is documenting that. .

A few year ago I regularly listened to an interview-style podcast (She Percolates) and the hosts asked their guest “what does success look like for you now?” I like how the addition of the word “now” implies that success changes with seasons and over time. What success looks like for me during summer, is very different from what it looks like during the school year. What does success look like for you now?⁣

When I created the Bookworm Kit, I included a version for documenters. People like me who like to track the books they are reading or like to document the books in some ways. Over the years I tried different methods: in my notebooks, lists, digital documents, Goodreads and trackers to paint or cross out. 
Nothing really stuck, though. I’m trying to update Goodreads once in a while but the digital world being the only source of my tracking is not to my liking. 
When I added this illustration of a bookshelf in my Bookworm Kit, I made the book spines big enough so there would be space to add titles. It’s A5 sized but I cut it up to use it in my TN sized notebook and hoped this would help you as well. So far, it’s working. Although, other than A Song of Ice and Fire series and The Wicked King nothing stood out to me so far. In terms of books, it’s not been a mind-blowing year so far. 
Do you track books? If yes, where? Or do you think it’s not worthwhile to document them? #RietGoesEtsy

And the second one! Now I just need to get over having done two variable colour portraits and not having @artandsoulcindy to coach me and do more! I even have the right colours and a few big brushes. But THEN I’m going to have to figure how to see the light and shadow of a new pallet by trying different colours! The fun and learning never ends 🤷‍♀️

I guess I just need to see individual colours and their shades as lights and darks and... 😏

I don’t like the idea of striving for balance. Maybe choosing priorities is a better way to look at what we can/can’t do, or what we need to do in this season, a reminder that it’s not forever.⁣⁣

What DON’T you do? As in, consciously choosing not to do? I don’t style my hair beyond brushing and a hair elastic. I don’t read a newspaper. I don’t take care of my garden daily. I don’t mop my floors. I can’t do everything, so I have to choose what I don’t do. Do you feel aware of how saying “yes” to something is saying “no” to something else? Do you feel guilty for the things you don’t do?⁣

Thanks to @artandsoulcindy I finally attempted a multicoloured portrait. I had no clue what I was doing or how to *see* the shadows in this manner, but Cindy was an amazing teacher and was extremely patient.
✨
Patient but strict: only big (too big) brushes were allowed 🤪
✨
After many examples talked through, and several layers and frustrating moments of silent screaming later, she looks human! ✨
I used some kind of gold flecked paint stuff in her hair for fun and as an experiment.
✨
Unfortunately my pages weren’t dry enough when I closed the book and my pages stuck together. Lesson learned...again after the 100th time 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

For the Get Messy Season of Documenting. @divsy swatched some of her washi tape the other day, which inspired me to do the same. Rough themes from upper left: unicorns, penguins, cats, some random favorites, maps and postal, and space. Gesso, scraped acrylic paint, washi.

The back/response to the previous page in my #gmseasonofdocumenting art journal. 
That's where I am and have been for quite some time: right in between, with an eroded sense of home. I struggle with this quite a lot these days, this elusive sense of belonging. 
I have been living in Japan for close to 20 years, and with each passing year the feeling of being "in between" has grown heavier. On the one hand, it's a rich experience that teaches me a lot, on the other hand the restlessness that comes with it is very real.

The state of my travel journal as it comes on the plane with me. The Canada portion of our trip was so full that there was no time to write it all out. So every couple of days, I would add in my ephemera and now I have a very long flight to fill it in and do some sketching too. sorry for the movement in the video, it was hard to keep the camera steady while turning the pages 😅 #traveldocumenting #gmseasonofdocumenting

I saw Heather Tracy from Thickwood printing pictures on junk mail pages to get amazing ephemera and had to try it. Why this page then ended up in my #gmseasonofdocumenting journal I don't know, aside from loving it and having to glue it into a journal - maybe to document my love of trying new things? Or my love of those gold dots?
