Get Messy Season of Kindness – Week 1

It is the Season of Kindness at *Get Messy. So for the  next few weeks I’m working in this TN insert 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.

So, a new season has started at Get Messy Art Journal, The Season of Kindness! This is also the first season in years that I haven’t been on the Get Messy design team! So it will be a little different for me.

For this season I am working in a small Travelers Notebook insert I put together, It’s pocket sized and fits my new jade Inkdori.

My first thought on hearing the new season theme was honestly “well, that’s somewhat boring..”. Yes, Kindness is important and amazing, but not something I thought I’d really enjoy journaling about. I often use my journal more to express my anxious feelings or just to paint galaxies, so exploring a kindness theme didn’t appeal to me.

Atleast not until I read the tutorial on Get Messy’s site by my friend Alicia, who encouraged us to spread kindness using art. So for this season, I’m doing just that. The pages in my journal are going to have kind quotes and thoughts, and I’m planning to make copies to send out at postcards or to leave in places.

There’s magic inside you.

You make the world a beautiful place.

I love how both of these pages turned out and I hope the copies I send out can cheer people up and bring kindness to their day.

Are you participating in Get Messy this season?
