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.

My Experience in Get Messy: A Review

Now that I've spent some time there, I can finally tell you: I am so glad that I found this lovely little community! At first, I wasn't exactly sure what the $10/month membership fee was getting me, or that it was worth it, but I'm sure now—about both the fee and the worth!

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.

Finished Spread: Space and Clusters

This is a spread that has been sitting quietly, half finished, in my art journal for about two months. The colors are great (pastel blues and greens paired with their more vibrant counterparts via india inks and transparent acrylics) but there is just something really off about the whole spread that kept me away.

Finished Spread "Internal Tide"

I've had a gorgeous mess of dried Bombay India ink sitting in my journal for five days, waiting to be transformed from colorful anarchy to repurposed chaos; today, I obliged. Working with the India ink was a lot different that my usual acrylics. The thin ink moved more freely than what I'm used to, creating organic shapes and colors, whereas my usual paint needs more guidance.

ArtSnacks Unboxing: June 2016

It's finally June, which is crazy because 2016 is already half gone. The good news, however, is that my Art Snacks box is here and I'm thrilled about it! I'm sure you're curious to see what goodies were hiding inside, and so was I. So thrilled, in fact, that I postponed my mini-getaway just so that I could open it.
