She who is brave, is free

I'll be the first one to admit that I have found this season of the brave really difficult, I'm not really sure why I have struggled with this one. Anyway it's only last couple of days that I've started to feel a bit more inspired around the bravery subject.
Below is what I have come up with so far,
Even when I was making my zine, I had no idea what I was going to put in it or what message I was trying to get across...I finally decided to think about the reasons why I was brave. 

Below is my is my answer to this week's prompt what am I afraid of in a style that I'm not so comfortable with. I love pages that are cluttered and colourful, so I decided to do the complete opposite. I also love big lettering and bold typeface- so I went with something more simple and listed my fears, some silly and also some more serious.

Below was another style I was trying out, I have seen lots of cool art journals with lots of cool layering. I don't think I still quite have the knack, as it does look thrown together. I'll have another go maybe with more of an aim in mind.

 Also stay tuned for my new project, I'll be posting my first set of illustrations shortly.
Lots of love,

On to the next set of prompts which revolve around Bravery, this is my take so far..
My tribal lady- I have got quite into Sharpie pens on glossy magazines it's just so smooth to draw with.

A lot of my art journal pieces have quotes, song lyrics and on the whole are a bit wordy- this time I wanted to try and let the images speak for themselves.

I have also started two other projects- The 100 day project which you can follow on my instagram address is: LaurenPearl121, the hashtag I'm using is #100daysoftunesandgladrags. I have decided to mix my love of fashion and music, so you get to see my outfit choices (thank god I get to wear what I like to work!) and also what song I've listened to that day. Please check out the bands I mention they are awesome..obviously!
The second project I have started is one of my own and off the aback of Get Messy and feeling creative and inspired. Fashion through the ages, as you can guess one of my biggest interest is fashion- so I have decided to do a bit of research and draw the fashion of the time. So look out for some of my posts showing off my fashion drawings.
Lots of love
