Get Messy Friday- Season of Contrast Week 2

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..

My pages this week were all inspired by other Get Messians!

This first page is actually one I started last week. I had made the background with gelli prints and then spray paint over top, and while I loved the look, I didn’t feel inspired to journal on it.

So this week I used it as my base for some intuitive painting (following Riet’s tutorial).

My next page is inspired by both Amy Maricle and Elly Mack. They’re both so good at doing repetitive lines and marks, and I tried to do some of that on this page.

Last week Sasha shared a tutorial for printing faces on the Get Messy blog, that I had to try! I actually followed the tutorial to print both a face and then a moon, using Tombow dual brush pens.

I thought this was fun because I ended up with a slightly different look then when I just do my normal drawings.

That’s it from me this week! *I am an affiliate for Get Messy.. This post might include some affiliate links. If you purchase using them, I might get a small commission at no additional cost to you.
