#OhJournalEtc - October

I've been thinking a lot about time. Time is not a horrible thing but it doesn't walk gracefully. It stumbles, takes wrong turns and slips like a lost drunk. And you have to be the person to handle it, reach it before it would slip down and take you with it. 
-note to myself
September was a terrible mixture of emotions. For one moment, I was the most content person on Earth and the next moment I was hurting myself with the thoughts of all possible things that can ruin my life at some point. I was a pudding of emotions. I created a lot of art, wrote a few short stories I don't know what to do with them, got some bomb dot com emails that might are going to change my life completely (I can't wait to tell you guys about it but gotta wait, DAMN) and took first steps to be a slightly better person. I'm a work in progress.
And here we are, already entered October. Let's romanticize fall. Also, prepare your art journals because October's #OhJournalEtc prompts are here -

Week 1 - living in ruins of a palace within my dreams 
(Lyric from Lorde's song Team, this lyric perfectly captures the imagination of youth of our generation and can be the perfect fit for your art cravings)

Week 2 - Sound
(Can be a song, poem, playlist etc - sound of your choice)

Week 3 - Secret
(DON'T KEEP IT A SECRET, TURN IT INTO ART. Do it for your art journal)

Week 4 - Light
(I've always seen light as a medium of hope. Lights will guide you home. Make something that reflects your hope and how you see light)
And for September's #OhJournalEtc, here's a throwback.

Use these prompts when you are art journalling and tag them wth #OhJournalEtc on instagram so that I can see your entries. Trust me it brightens up my day to see your amazing art journals.
I'd say it again, art journalling is more therapeutic than a contest of keeping the most beautiful journal. Do it for yourself, do it for your sanity, do it because you want to do it. 
Hoping to see your entries this October!
