Get Messy Friday – Season of Contrast Week 6

It is the Season of Contrast over at *Get Messy. So for the past few weeks I’ve been 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..

It’s already the last week in the season of Contrast! I’ve got 2 pages to share this week,, and while I’ve been making it a goal to try and journal more in my journal (not just paper and paint), neither page has any words this week. Oh well.

My first page is inspired by two of my favorite things: Earth and Space. Is it weird to love two things which are extremely contrasting? I feel so at home in nature, but I dream of space.

The two photos are from National Geographic, and then I added doodles over top of them.

My thought for this page was simply “what if everyone had wings”. So I re-used a drawing from my sketchbook and painted wings over top. One of my favorite book series as a pre-teen was about a girl with wings. 🙂

So that’s it for this week! I fly home from my vacation tomorrow. I’m excited to get back to my studio and I may continue working in this Contrast journal until the new Get Messy season.
