I had this idea last week to make my art journal pages the same way I used to make zine pages.
The left page, as practice, is pretty okay, but I’m really digging the right side. I’m not sure if this is how I’ll be continuing with this art journal, but it’s sparked a lot of ideas.
Next month is National Novel Writing Month. I haven’t missed a year since I started in 2006 (I mean, I’ve won only a few, but I’ve tried every year). For a while, I thought I wouldn’t be doing it this year; I don’t have words bursting at the seams. I don’t want to write 50,000 words of coherent storyline. Then I made these pages and I thought: well why don’t I rebel? Aside from the prompt, expect next month’s posts to be a little different.
Get Messy is an art journal challenge where a gang of crafty vixens are sharing art journal pages we have created to practise our skills and push past our creative limits with hopes to inspire. We share our pages without restraint every week, and once a month we create around a prompt. Go check out these crazy talented ladies who are creating pages who each have a unique perspective and style. We will be sharing our work around social media so follow the hashtag #getmessyartjournal.
