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.

Live Recap: Helix Vision & Messy Pages

So I thought that, for this week's Instagram Live Stream, I would open my hour long stream by working on top of a background that was created using a technique inspired by Messy Pages! The image below is how my spread looked immediately before my live stream. This is only similar to how I usually begin my altered book spreads in that the background is a combination of acrylic paints.

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: "Making Shadows"

I have a certain love for hanging lanterns. Honestly, all party supplies stir something inside me that just gets me in a good mood, whether it be streamers, balloons...presents. I have a bad habit of leaving decorations up far beyond a reasonable time frame, and in fact, have a string of green paper lanterns dangling from the ceiling in my studio.

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.

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!
