Get Messy Thursday- Dear Self

It is the Season of Introspection in the Get Messy community, and I am using an altered atlas as my art 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 suppport 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 only have 2 completed pages to share this week and I’m not actually in love with the first page I made. I had an idea in my head, but it didn’t turn out like I was thinking. It’s just “okay” to me…

My second page I do love. The moon girl on the right was actually inspired by Kathrin Honesta, but I painted her in my own style. I just loved the design of the girl in front of the moon.

I painted her in gouache, which is super vibrant! I loved the design of the page and didn’t want to “mess it up” by journaling on it, so I added a flap on the left that opens up.

How did you journaling go this week? With Monday being a holiday I got less done, but I still have time before the weekend is here again for more projects!
