Get Messy Season of Fairy Tales – Week 1

It is the Season of Fairy Tales at *Get Messy. So for the next few weeks I’m working in this handmade mushroom 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.

This week starts a new season at Get Messy- The Season of Fairy Tales! I’m excited for this one, it’s going to be a lot of fun.

My friend Misty and I did a sort of mini collaboration for this season- I sketched out a mushroom for her and she turned it into an accordion journal and shared the tutorial on the Get Messy blog.

Inspired by that, I created a mushroom journal as well. I made this double sided album. It’s basically 2 pamphlet stitched journals that I adhered together going in opposite directions.

Now onto my pages for the week. For this season, my plan is to re-write some classic fairy tales into versions that I like better, we’ll see if I make it through the whole season doing this or not though. 🙂 I started with Little Red Riding Hood, because that one is my all time favorite.

I also created this page based off of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

I think I’ll be filling this journal up with a lot of character design illustrations, they’re really fun to do!

What’s your favorite fairy tale?
