Get Messy Season of Fairy Tales – Week 2

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.

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

I have 2 pages to share this week. Although maybe it’s more like 1.5, as I haven’t finished the second one yet.

First up, I have my space princess page. So far in this journal I have been doing fairy tale retellings, where I put a twist on a classic fairy tale, however this is not one of those. For this spread I was thinking more along the lines of “if I were a princess, and that’s how I ended up with this:

I actually drew the girl our first and then found the quote by Elizabeth Gilbert and I think they go together perfectly!

As I mentioned above, this second page is not finished yet. I started it yesterday however I won’t have any time in my art studio this weekend, so it’s on hold until Monday! I have an idea of what I want to add though.

This week Riet shared a fun tutorial on the Get Messy blog about adding windows and flaps to your pages, which is what inspired me to add in this cut out window. I really love it.

Happy weekend y’all!
