JOURNALING: 30 Day July Challenge

Journaling. Journaling is something way different from writing in a dairy. Journaling is great for people like me who suffer from anxiety, or people who don’t have anybody to talk to. Journaling can (apparently) help heal the mind and can be therapeutic. So on a whim, I decided to attempt journaling. I (obviously) DIYed a journal and Iwill share that with you later, and started writing. At the end of each entry, I put song lyrics and stickers, but you can do  whatever makes you happy because it’s your journal. If it helps, you can adress each journal entry to somebody who you would like to talk to, or you feel would listen, so my entries are to Jonathan Byers from Stranger Things. I don;t kno why this helps, but it does. I also discovered 30-day challenges that give prompts for what you are writing. I typed up the prompts i’m using this month and made a printable below for you guys!

Quick Craft: DIY Summer Polariod Bea Miller Photo Chain

TWO MORE WEEKS OF SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!

Was that a little much? Recently I’ve started listening to Bea Miller, and have gotten hooked on her music. Like seriously, it’s really good. My favorite Bea Miller songs are Dracula, Young Blood and Open Your Eyes. While a lot of her music is from 2014, it is really good and i like the messages that Young Blood and Fire N Gold send out. So i’d google these.

In honor of the summer, i wanted to do something with Tumblr photos and thanks to LaurDIY’s Celeb Trends video which cued me to search ‘celeb diys’ on YouTube and The Haute Pink Diary who made the Bea Miller Inspired DIYs video. I wanted to do something with polaroids just because and then i realized that they played a main part in the Fire N Gold music video, so i thought that i’d do something like this. Why don’t i stop talking and let’s start the DIY!

You will need Tumblr summer photos (found online), a polaroid template (also online), tape and black yarn/string.

Step One. Gather your photos. A simple google search can help with that. I googled ‘tumblr summer photos’ and ‘tumblr summer nights’. i also found my polaroid template online and put it with the photos in a Word document. Print the photos and cut them out.

Step Two. Bea Miller song lyrics. I just looked these up on AZ Lyrics and wrote ones that i thought fit with my polaroids. If you know what a polaroid looks like, then you know that the bottom part is bigger than the other three sides. That’s where the lyrics should be written. Cut a long piece of your black thread or yarn that covers the length of the wall you want to hang this up on. Tape your photos the the string/yarn and hang. If you have clothespins, you can also put them up like that, but i didn’t. It kind of takes the Tumblr away from it, but oh well. Taping it up is hard. Try not to let go. It fell on me like 5 times, soooo…..

Thank you guys for reading my blog! Let me know if you guys want me to do more artist/band themed DIYs. I really hope that you guys like Bea  Miller as well.

Water Marble Mason Jar

Hey guys! Summer is sooooooo close now! I’m sorry i haven’t updated in a while, but i’ve been so busy. I have time now, so i’m going to post this one now. I did this so long ago and had the photo on my hard drive, so i thought it’s better late than never, right?

You will need a mason jar, nail polish and an old container

Step One. Clean the inside of your mason jar. In an old container, fill it with water to where you want the design to go up to. Pour in a few drop of nail polish. If you are more talented with water marbling, you can draw designs in there with toothpicks, but I’m not, so i left it as is.

Step Two. Dip your jar into the nail polish and leave it on a Kleenex or old cloth to dry. Dump out the water and wash the container. When the mason jar is dry, you can take a black marker and draw some kind of pattern on it, but this is optional. You may also choose to use a spray sealant, but i thought that nail polish was good enough on it’s own

Step Three. Fill the mason jar with random things you need to store. Mine has some chargers and two random erasers for some reason. To make it look cuter, i put a glitter hairtie around the top and wrote “UGH” on the lid.

Thank you guys so much for reading and let me know when my BTS 2017 series should start as i have some amaze ideas. Remember to follow me using the button on the totally overhauled homepage so that you don’t miss out. Stay Weird! (I totally stole that from a t-shirt, but whateves)
