this was so annoying to colour omg

anonymous asked:

Do you have any suggestions for someone who wants to get into journaling like you do but doesn't feel very creative or original? It seems so healing but I feel like I couldn't come up with anything unique.

omg honestly this was me like 3 years ago and i feel u it’s so shitty. the only real thing i’ve done since 2014 to change that is just … i’ve done a lot of art lmao. it’s cliche and annoying but the only way to develop a style is to just keep doing stuff and you’ll work out stuff you like and eventually that’ll become Your Style. use your own handwriting, use colours you like, use words from your own brain etc etc just try and make stuff that you like

copying (for practise obv not just straight up plagiarism lol) is SO good and useful when you don’t have a style yet. i did a lot of copying of other artists work for school stuff and also for childhood fun and it forced me to try stuff i wouldn’t have otherwise tried (watercolours, bright block coloured acrylic paints). also try and find some artists you like bc #inspo from other artists changes everything (i started drawing in pen bc of danny gregory ! basquait made me realise art can be messy ???!!! a wild concept for 18 yr old demii). everything you experience will end up in Your Style so try and keep an open mind 

oh and btw … if u just wanna do it to help you personally rather than Be The Best Artiste In The World remember it doesn’t have to look good !!! like … just writing down a thought in a journal and that being it is GREAT and v. useful !

  • but like. can you imagine an ot5 game of truth or dare and noah/blue/ronan’s increasingly competitive dares 
  • blue daring ronan to steal gansey’s journal and they take a shot every time they see a word over four syllables

which friend brings stuff to bake whenever they go over to other people’s houses

  • adam keeps wondering where all these vanilla cupcakes (his favourite) are coming from 
  • noah the baking mom ghost. pls

which friend keeps extra clothes for friends who might need to change

  • i literally think about gansey doing this for adam every single day of my life
  • he probably has a whole drawer of comfy sweats and pj’s ready in case adam ever is in trouble and needs to sleep at monmouth
  • also blue has definitely worn his aglionby rowing team sweater at some point 
  • when they were out and it was cold and gansey couldn’t stop noticing how big it was on her and how the sleeves pooled around her fingers

  • *shouting in gansey’s ear at 3am* WOOP WOOP, GANSEY BOY!!!
  • “NOAH WTF” 
  • “…can we go to dollar city???”
  • so basically the end result is a very grumpy gansey driving noah to dollar city to 
  • literally not even buy anything just walk around the store shaking glitter globes
  • and then also to the skate park where noah tries to each gansey how to skate but they both just end up tripping over each other and giggling and drinking schnapps with noah’s head on gansey’s stomach
  • gansey x noah is the rarest thing i DEMAND MORE

which friend hosts all the meet ups

  • it’s usually gansey
  • but once in a while its adam 
  • and they all go there and keep him company and talk and laugh and get loud because it makes st agnes feel warmer and more like a home 

which friend can almost never make it to meet ups and are snapchatted the events from the meetup so they dont feel left out

  • NOAH AND BLUE ORCHESTRATING A 5000 PIC SNAPCHAT STORY FOR ADAM (lets assume our bb has a phone lol sob)
  • which is mostly ronan lovingly giving the camera the finger 
  • or blue and noah dropping peace signs 
  • and pictures of gansey’s ass (usually taken by noah)
  • so once in a while at work you’ll just see adam put away his phone and nod to himself

  • hmmmm idk. i feel like blue could be vegetarian/vegan
  • she gets into arguments with noah and adam all the time who don’t understand how you can go without eating a good BURGER and say you have TRULY LIVED
  • gansey finds out and buys like 4000 dollars worth of tofu and chickpeas and checks out like 5 books on getting the right amount of protein 
  • blue just rolls her eyes but it means a lot to her that he cares so much

which friend always remembers this and tries to remind the other whenever possible

  • again this is gansey 

which friend makes up friend group names or slogans or nicknames

  • this is noah and ronan’s game tbh
  • they probably do this thing where they call blue by every variant of the colour blue until she gets so annoyed that she finally answers
  • “hey aquamarine”
  • “cerulean”
  • “hey. hey cobalt”
  • “navy”
  • “cyan??”
  • “royal-”
  • its all fun and games until that one time she punches ronan in the face
  • and then adam is just every brand of pop known to man at different times 
  • or different superheroes 
  • he’s okay with “dr pepper” or “batman” but he draws the line at “7-up” or “deadpool”
  • and then they call gansey all of kavinsky/henry’s names for him when they really wanna piss him off

  • idk i feel like all of them can take care of themselves 
  • can noah drive?? idk 

which friend is always available for advice and tips and tricks

  • blue is rlly savvy this way actually
  • adam’s pretty good but more with practical life stuff like handiwork/cars/study tips than advice
  • but whatever you do do NOT take advice from gansey. or ronan

which friend is always available for video games and bad movies and forgetting your problems for a while

  • whenever any of the others but esp adam or blue are sad he’ll make cupcakes and start pillow fights and do artsy things with blue
  • and he and adam will play video games in monmouth like dorks and adam always wins 
  • and then afterwards they’ll put on all noah’s favourite old terrible 80′s horror movies and laugh at the awful effects and fall asleep together on the couch
  • and ronan is like ew gross parrish czerny and sargent are all sleeping on the couch but he’ll throw a blanket over them when gansey’s not looking

which friend feels like an add-on or the last to be thought of but is actually very near and dear to the hearts of everyone in the group


anonymous asked:

OMG, NurseyDex soulmates! Dex just constantly finds words and lines of poetry on his limbs because sometimes Nursey can't find anything else to write on but its imPORTANT okay? Dex is annoyed, there are RULES damnit! And Nursey can't figure out why his soulmate is always covered in dirt smears (grease is hard to identify without smell and texture). So Nursey convinces himself that his mate is some sort of artist who only works with dark colours because how could he not love an artist?

oh my gosh !! i feel like you and @enchantingdefendorperson should be friends, anon. I love the idea of Nursey being like, well, obviously they’re a very angsty tortured artist lol
