Season of Color!! (Blog Hop)

he Creative Team for the art journalling community Get Messy is connecting today to celebrate Season 15: Color! We are sharing spreads today from our personal art journals...featuring specific colors of the rainbow! I am sharing a yellow page with you today, the happy color of life, warmth, and enlightenment.

Finished Spread: Overgrown

Today's art journal spread came about in under 24 hours, which is quite a feat for me to accomplish in a space of 11" x 19"! There are quite a few elements to this page that I've never created before, and are now happily added to my artistic arsenal! The color palette is one, but the use of a radiating ombré is really where I've taken notice.

Live Recap: Celebration

t began with one page painted pink, and one page painted brown. After the acrylics were dry, I went to town with more matte acrylics, iridescent paint, and collage material! There were two things that I had in mind when I began the is spread, one being a hanging banner with triangular flags, the other being Neapolitan ice cream; these were items that I saw yesterday which cause me to think, that would be good for journal fodder! 

Huge News! Art Journaling News!

For 2017, I will be pushing myself to be as creative as possible for my new position as a Creative Team member! I've been chosen to be a part of the Get Messy Creative Team for next year, and will be creating videos, tutorial posts, and sharing images of my art work for a group of 1500+ beautiful people who share my biggest passion: art journaling!

Finished Spread: "Enlighten the Untransformed"

This journal page, which is all about trying to enlighten those who are unwilling, is both a statement about myself and others. I think that everyone should strive to have an open mind and an open heart, and even though many people believe themselves to be 'open minded,' I'm not quite sure they're correct.

Finished Spread: Catcher of Dreams

or a week, I've been out of arting commission, babying a bruised hand. Thankfully, none of my knuckles retained any of that lovely plum hue that both inspired and impaired. I'm not at full capacity, but I decided to take a peek at the Get Messy blog, and couldn't help myself from shifting from computer to art journal.
