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: 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 Spreads: Week of 5/29-6/4

I've been on a roll this week at my desk: painting, drawing, gluing and more! It seemed like I was working in both art journals consistently for about 3 days, switching back and forth in order to allow paints and inks to dry. I've finished 3 spreads, started 2, and worked on 2 others, totaling in 7 different spreads in progress at one time! Today I am sharing just the 3 finished spreads, so as to not overwhelm you...or my camera. Enjoy!

Finished Spread: Printed Reminder

I still have the illness, but apparently that's good for my creativity as I have created a new spread from start to finish in a day! I love everything about this spread, except that it's in my private journal, which means that I won't be sharing with anyone in person. Luckily for you, I can show it off online!

Finished Spread: Vocals

I have finally completed the art journal spread seen as a work in progress in this post: WIP: Orange & Blue Background. It's not everyday that I feel comfortable with a spread and I can call it finished, but happy day, this one is done!

WIP: Struggling With Portraits

Being an avid acrylic user, I love mixing paints for light and darker hues, and find it so much easier than perfecting shades with graphic or water color, however shading is still far easier than line work! It's still a work in progress, of course, but I'm at the point where things are starting to feel cohesive.
