Get Messy Art Journal ♥ Caylee Grey

My pages this week are rather moody and I’m not sure why.

I used even less stuff than last week.

See that angst? You’d swear these pages were from my teenage journals. I started making the lovely calming “just breathe” page, then writing those tiny words pissed me off too much and I went back to my big ass brush on the left.

I guess there’s only so much angst you can put into your pages with gold gouache.

  • Ooh, I love these! I definitely need to remember “less perfection, more making” – something else I should write to tack up on the wall above my art desk!! :)

  • You have to let it OUT! I particularly love the African page. My sister just moved to Johanesburgh and is feeling it too.

  • Seriously beautiful. Isn’t it funny how our pages show what we are feeling, even if we don’t know it.

  • Hi! Love these pages!! They make me so curious though; why do you not like living in Africa?? I’ve never been. And I pass no judgement. Just curious to know more if you can articulate it.

  • These pages are brilliant. I can see a major progression in how alive and dynamic your messier feelings are within your art journal pages. Very well done!

  • That all you need is love page is one of my favorites of yours, Moody girl. ;)

  • Haha. Angst + gold is a good combo, though. And maybe it’s that emo teenager inside of me, but I love it when you go all moody on your pages. I love it a lot, actually.

  • I love this post. I laughed at your blunt honestly about how writing those two little words just pissed you off haha.

  • wow, that last page is awesome! and I truly love the use of gold.

    These are my favorite pages yet. I hunted down a spiral bound art journal because I thought it would be more manageable but you make me long for a regular bound book.

    Less perfection more making. Yes. Just breathe. Yes. Gold. Yes. White space. Yes. Love it all honey as always. xxx

  • I love your use of gold. Sometimes things are said best with little to nothing at all, I think if anything you nailed your mood completely.

    Beautiful work – keep up the creative vibes!
