Get Messy Friday – Season of Contrast

It’s a new season over at *Get Messy, the Season of Contrast! So for the next few weeks I’m working in this handmade journal.

*Get Messy Art Journal is an art journaling program that is a school, art playground and family. We are a group of like minded art journalers who have come together under this art form to learn, share, practice our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. Our community values consistent creating, encouragement and support and trying new things. We would love to have you join us as a member of Get Messy Art Journal.

You can read more about why I love the Get Messy community here..

For this season I’m working in a coptic bound journal I made. My friend Vanessa recently launched a Basic Bookbinding class so I used it to brush up on some of my book binding skills.

This week I have also been working in a traveling art journal and a collab so I only did 2 pages in my contrast journal, but I love them both.

I actually wasn’t sure if I would really like the contrast theme until it got started and now I’m warming up to the idea. 🙂

For my first contrast page I adhered one of my girl drawings (altered to have black and white hair) onto a transparency and taped it into the journal so it flips back and forth.

My second page is inspired by another Get Messy class that my friend Tanyalee launched- Messy Pages. Tanyalee has a really awesome/messy style that she shows you how to achieve and so I attempted it on this page.

That’s it from me this week!
