Summer of love / 2

Here's a little update on the art journal progress. Happy fourth my friends! PS how awkward is it to have a holiday on a Wednesday? I mean. Totally throwin' off my 8-5. Whatever. Can't complain about paid time off, right? HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY CELEBRATING AMERICA! Hopefully the weather holds up. It's been pretty gross around here lately. 
Summer is... / The spine of my summer
 Summer playlist spread
My summer word
Journaling about being present / Highlighting text from a book page
Random lyrics journaling / What I dislike about summer (hard to believe, right?!)
Who am I? ...kinda disappointed in this page. Might do a part 2 / Random pocket journaling (recognize that stenciled 67? That was a testrun cover for my dad's father's day gift!)
Details from a personal page
Photo 3: Painting with water / that last one says "we are infinite" if you can't tell...WHO ELSE IS EXCITED FOR THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER IN SEPTEMBER?!

HOKAYYYY now that I've bombarded you with photos, let me just say that I have no idea why or how there is so much orange and yellow in this thing. Orange is my absolute least favorite color, ever. Here and there, as a babytinyaccent maybe, but like...this recurring color trend needs to stop, haha. I think the problem started with the paint I used for my summer word. It's a neon salmonish color (which I LOVE, btw) aaaaand then of course I just had to get all fancy and add that fabric...and then continue the theme onto the explanation of the word...and then I just loved the orange page (well, what it said) I found in another book to use for my "who am I" page...eesh. 

Note to self: less orange, more Jessica. 

Regardless, I'm still really lovin the heck outta this process (understatement of my LIFE!) and have soso many more ideas outside of the given prompts. Maybe I'm repeating myself from the last SOL post, but hey. The next few pages I share might not even be class-related. Who knows? It's summer, and summer is for...well, I'll let you fill in the blank (:
